Hi, everyone! It's my last couple of days in Hawaii and I thought it would be fun to share more pictures with you, since I don't have any knitting stuff to talk about. If you don't care to look at my family vacation pics, I completely understand! Scroll right on down to the bottom of this post and see the AWESOME MALABRIGO GIVEAWAY THAT CANNOT BE MISSED THIS WEEK!! And, yes, that was me yelling!
The other day we went to see Waimea Canyon.
It was quite breathtaking.
That's my younger brother, Daniel. Being a dork and posing for a blog pic...
My daughter is posing for the blog as well and pretending to be flying. Yeah, it looks a little scary!
And, of course my goofy husband had to try as well...
Then we drove up a little further to a lookout where we could see the Niihau Island.
Here you can read all about it...
A little farther up and you can see the Na Pali coast.
So, so pretty...

This picture was too cute not to share.
Today we went to the Kamokila Hawaiian Village and spend the day kayaking and exploring the historic village.
It's really neat to see all the grass huts and fruit trees everywhere.
There were a ton of peacocks walking around.
Here's one shaking her tail feathers at ya!
I couldn't resist taking a picture of the baby peacock running around. It looks like a baby chick, right? It possibly could be, but after this pic was taken, it ran off with a peacock mommy.
There's really no good reason for this picture except that I thought the lonely leaf was really cool to photograph.
That's all I got for you... now onto the good stuff! This week I am SOOOOOOOOO excited to announce that the Malabrigo giving away is continuing! I have EIGHT skeins of Malabrigo Rios to give away to EIGHT lucky followers. That's right, you heard correctly. I have Rios in my hot little hands and EIGHT lucky winners will have some too shortly.
Malabrigo Rios is a spectacular superwash merino wool in a worsted weight. It is soon to be released into stores, and from what I am aware of is currently not yet available anywhere. How exciting is that?! I can't wait to try this yarn and plan to as soon I return back home! I love Malabrigo Worsted but I think Rios may end up just being my new favorite. I'll be sure to report back.
Take a look at just how lovely this yarn looks...
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 8/15/10. Check out the lovely Malabrigo colorways of the "my still favorite" Worsted here and tell us which is your favorite. I can't seem to pick a favorite, but today I feel like knitting with Tuareg because it looks like the color of the ocean here in Hawaii.
I'll randomly pick the winners on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
