When you need something QUICK!

When you need something QUICK!

Sometimes a quick project with really thick yarn is just the thing.

Perhaps you need a little instant gratification. If I am in the middle of a big project, I often treat myself to palette cleanser. I spend an evening making a hat and then I happily go back to sleeve island.

Or maybe you want to try out a new technique, like cables for example. Big yarn = big stitches = easy to see what you are doing. Try this!

Or maybe time has gotten away from you and you suddenly need a quick gift. I have been there!

Malabrigo Rasta is perfect for these situations and more.  Rasta can be hard to get, but we've just restocked our shelves and wanted you to be the first to know.

Because sometimes, Rasta is just the thing!
