I have knitted 3 mini socks - They were fun, but I don't recommend using RHSS if you are a tight knitter and are using little needles! My fingers were very sore! (I used that for the red & white stocking) I used Bernat Satin for the other two - much easier!


I finally bought some Malabrigo - it is just scrumptious! I am making a scarf for my DD and her roomate for Christmas. The first one I started using the Malabrigo worsted in Verde Adriana. I am using a pattern I found on a dishcloth site, lol - called Yarn Over Cable Cloth

I haven't decided what pattern to use for the other scarf, but I love the pretty blue color. It is called Tuaree. Unfortunately the picture is a bit fuzzy, but the point was to capture the color anyhow!

Cute socks! I agree with the RHSS assessment. It kills my hands..like knitting with sandpaper. There are better choices.

I bought my first malabrigo, but haven't knit with it yet. I'm going to test it on my super sensitive skin because I'd really love to make a wool sweater.

Love your color choices!

I do alot of knitting/crocheting with RHSS for making HAP rectangles, but that is done on larger needles...I can tolerate that, but never again smaller than a size 8! I hope you have luck with the malabrigo - it is just such a pleasure to work with!!

Starting small with the mini stockings! I hope to make big ones for the kids....maybe for next Christmas! So, they will have them done when they have kids of their own, lol!:teehee:

Great work on the stockings and the scarf! Thank you also for posting that dishcloth website. It's a treasure with so many ideas for scarves, baby blankets, etc.
