I ordered some malabrigo last week and just received it a few minutes ago. :passedout: Oh my goodness those colors are GORGEOUS!!! I got two skeins of worsted merino (Sealing Wax colorway), and one skein of lace in Continental Blue. So, what do y'all think? :happydance:

Beautiful! Have you knit with it yet? As pretty as it is, knitting with it is even better;)

I'm jealous!! I'm planning a trip to my LYS tomorrow in hopes to get 6 skeins of a color I like. Usually they have a few skeins of a colorway, but not 6 - wish me luck!

Just delicious! My lys is going to start carrying MMMM. She'll be the only store in North Texas to carry it.

I casted on My So Called Scarf with the worsted yarn, on 8mm needles. :cheering: The two skeins have a difference in color though (they ARE from the same dye lot... weird isn't it?) so I need to alternate between skeins every 2 rows. Hopefully I'll have enough yarn to make a hat too...

It's so nice to knit with. Incredibly soft. And I'm using my brand new Denise needles too. :happydance: I'm having so much fun! :teehee:

For the lace, I still have no idea what to do. :?? Any suggestions?
