Oh my! I've been talking about how I want to try Malibrigo after reading all the posts on here about it...today my Mom surprised me with 6 (yes 6!) skeins of Malibrigo in Vaa colorway. She said she was in the local fabric store and saw it, knew how much I wanted to try it - wasn't sure how much I would need (not a knitter) so just "guessed". Could anything be nicer????

So...now...what to make with it? I'm thinking a vest or maybe a sweater? Oh! off to look through patterns! Just knew you guys would understand my excitement!!!:woot::woohoo::woot:

Yeah - she really is the best, and my best friend too. I have my big 5-0 looming next month and I keep catching her making "notes" when I talk about different knitting relating things on my wish list ...so I am guessing this birthday may have a theme :roflhard:

Haven't chosen a pattern yet - but I'll keep you all posted!

Lady Violet - camera is on the fritz so no yarn porn right now, but hopefully I'll get it straightened out and be able to post a picture soon. :)

wow! I was at a yarn store in Superior, WI and they had malabrigo. It is sooo soft! I only had $7 though so I couldn't buy a skein.

Oooh, I've been reading all about malabrigo too, but I have to actually eyeball it at my lys. Rainberry I'm right there with you! Too broke at the moment, waiting a little bit for cash flow increase! What I'm doing instead is "practicing" my patterns with acrylic. I've just recently returned to knitting so wanna make sure I can still 'do' it. Oh, and by the way, have you all been to the vogue knitting site recently? They have some free downloadable patterns that are the bomb! http://www.vogueknitting.com/vkm/?q=node/403
