I am so excited about the toy drive for Positive Tomorrows!  There are so many adorable creatures on Ravelry just waiting to be made.  When I spotted Wasabi by Susan Claudino I knew I had to get started on him immediately.  I knit him out of 1 hank of Rios by Malabrigo and he turned out just as I imagined him.


Rio means “river” in spanish so Rios is named after the four major rivers in Uruguay.  The name also signifies the yarn’s wash-ability, it is a super soft pure merino superwash wool with 210 yards per skein.  If you are interested in knitting or crocheting a toy to donate be sure to take a look at all the adorable patterns by Susan Claudino, just click here!  Toys can be dropped off at L & B Yarn Co. until August 31st and for every toy donate you will be entered to win a $25 L & B Yarn Co. gift card!
