About the Event
How this works:
First 6 testers to sign up are accepted into the test.
If the test is full, you will be wait listed in case someone drops out. I will contact you as the spot becomes available. Cool?
You must knit using Malabrigo Rios. Such a chore? ! right :) lol. I know, I twisted your arm. Yarn shopping enabled! Malabrigo is the BEST !!! Superwash work horse and in spectacular colour way array. Enjoy yarn shopping!
Wonderful play on wedge charted beanie construction accented by the slanted bi coloured ribbing.
Fun in every stitch, I guarantee it.
Tip: If you are a Continental knitter, have you tried using the “Norwegian Thimble”? Please do, its efficient, and addictive.
My favourite colour combo in my favourite work horse yarn.
