Hi everyone! This is my first post in General Knitting :D

So I bought 8 skeins of Malabrigo, in 4 different colors on a whim, and now that they are here, I don't know what to make! Any suggestions? Here are the colors I have, 2 of each.

Well since there are only 2 of each, my first thought would be felted bags....although it seems a SHAME to felt that beautiful yarn. I have some of that Malabrigo for a sweater and it is sooooooooooooo YUMMY!

How about scarves/hats/mittens?

i have this (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1998) bootie pattern on the needles in my bag right now using that blue and green there in front. Going to make a baby hat with the other skein i have too! woudln't NORMALLY use wool for baby stuff but it is soooo soft that i just couldn't resist! ;)

the LYS that i got mine from had a baby sweater that they made with one skein of it. She said it was called the 5 hour baby sweater and told me to google it and i would find it. I did but i don't remember where anymore.

I am making KellyK's scrunchable scarf* out of some Malabrigo I bought. Since I have only had time lately to do a row here and a row there, I just have about 8" of scarf, but so far it looks and feels very nice! The scruchable-ness of the stitch pattern compliments the softness of the yarn very well.


(*if that's not Kelly's pattern, I'm sorry to the actual designer)

:inlove: :inlove: :inlove: Have I mentioned lately how much I love Malabrigo??? Those colors are goooooorgeous :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

I've made two diaper soakers with Malabrigo (so soft!!) and a hat with the leftover yarn. I really don't think you can go wrong with it....it's so soft you could use it for just about anything you don't mind hand washing....

Thanks!

Would it be stupid to do a kind of small throw? I was thinking maybe big needles and stripes. I'm not sure the colors all go together though. And by the time I needed more, if I did, then I'd be able to afford it :lol:

A scarf or hat would be very nice also, I've never done a scarf though. Ugh, decisions!

That is such pretty yarn, I haven't seen it before. what about a chunky bulky little sweater? Depending on where you live, if it's cold. It'd be awfully cute.
