View Full Version : My first Mmmmalabrigo!

08-13-2006, 07:13 PM
As I said previously, there were 3 yarns stores within walking distance of the B&B my DH and I stayed at this weekend to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. So guess what I found...... Malabrigo of course!!! :yay: Since finances are tight I could only allow myself to pick up one skein.... so now I have to decide if I want to make a hat or mittens! I like loong scarves, so I don't think I'd have enough to make one of those. Anyone have pattern recommendations? I got the Lime Blue btw.

Congratulations on your first Mmmmmmm purchase!! :woot:

As for patterns, knit a scrunchable scarf (http://www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftsscarf.htm)! It feels sooo good knit with Mmmmmmmalabrigo! I'd cast-on 20 stitches (18 for the pattern, plus two for selvage) and use #9 needles. It works out to a nice length and width.

Last week I made two purchases of some Mmmmmmm. :cheering: It is so soft!! I'm going to knit a scarf with the one and not sure yet with the other. I too want MORE of it. :muah:

the scrunchable scarf looks cute! Would only one skein be enough for it? Also, I'm a bit confused on the selvage thing... do I just knit those 2 stitches, slip them, or something else? Thanks!

One skein is good! For the selvedge edge, you slip the first stitch of every row and knit the last stitch of every row. :thumbsup:

Thanks Andrea! I plan on starting this as soon as my ball winder comes in the mail so I can wind the skein up! :cheering:
