View Full Version : My first MALABRIGO!
09-09-2006, 06:22 PM
Okay, I've given in to the temptation after I've heard everyone here gushing over the malabrigo and how gorgeous it is. I also saw a scarf that a friend knitted with it and fell in love. Here's the yarn I bought to make my mother-in-law's birthday (or Christmas--depending on when I finish) present!!

My 1st malabrigo is on the way :cheering:

YAY! Hope it gets to you super speedily! :pray:

I broke down too and got my first malabrigo! But, I'm still in the petting stage---I take it out everyday pet, squeeze and sigh-- put it back until I decide what to make. You know I can only admit this here!!!

I was telling my daughter that I have yarn that I don't want to knit because it's so nice. She said I was crazy. I know all you guys understand.
I'm knitting with my first Mmmmalabrigo, too, and it's wonderful to use as well as pet.

Sooooooooooo purty! What's the color called?
09-09-2006, 10:43 PM
The color is called Cuarzo. I think it means "quartz" in Spanish (or at least that's what google told me). :D I spent about a half an hour at my LYS trying to choose which color to get! :teehee:

Where do you get this mmmmalabringo?
09-10-2006, 06:56 AM
Yay for all of you first-time Mmmmmm users! :cheering: It is heavenly! :inlove:
As for where to buy it, some LYSs carry it (not mine, of course :-x ), but it's also available on the net. WEBS (http://yarn.com/webs/0/0/0/0-1001-1294-1323/0/24/1226/) carries a nice selection. I ordered my first Mmmm from them.

ohh very pretty!! I just got my first awhile back.. I keep knitting with one color and ripping out.. I just can't find the perfect project for it :rofl:

The scrunchable scarf is a great Mmmm project, and the yarn loves it! :rofl:

If you look on their website,
they have a section where you can look up stores by state to find ones that carry it.
Good luck! :D

I was going to design a scarf for my Mmmmm, but I may just have to go with scrunchable, too :cheering: Or, "My so called scarf"...I do love both :cheering: My mmmmmmmmmm should arrive Tuesday from Lambikins (http://www.lambikins.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&n=Malabrigo&p=219&c=99) :cheering: :cheering:

So is it realy that heavenly? I've got tow LYS's here in my town. Should I make the investment? How much is this stuff anyways? :?eyebrow:
What is a scrunchable??? And is this yarn itchy? (Not that I can start anything else, since I am partway through a sweater, halfway through a ribbon scarf, and have yarn coming for a poncho that I may never be skilled enough to knit!) Sally

Scrunchable scarf can be found here (http://www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftsscarf.htm) and it's my understanding that it's one of the softest merinos around. And it runs around $11.00 a hank.
