For the Love of Manos

Dear N,

I stumbled across this post from the Quesadillacraft blog (via It talks about Manos del Uraguay yarn, its origins as a cooperative " develop economic opportunities for the women in rural Uruguay" and how it has become a viable business and the favorite yarn of many knitters world wide, including you. I never knew this about Manos and will certainly start using it in more of my projects. It does feel lovely and comes in such a wide colourway. Hooray for sustainable development!

Since it's Friday and T is home sending me pictures of hippos (because I love them), I thought I'd share one of my favourites with you. Happy Friday N!
