I took the plunge and ordered a skein of Malabrigo in Oceanus from yarncountry.com. Just got it today and I AM IN LOVE. I never imagined that wool could be this soft!!!! :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Not sure what it's going to be though. Suggestions? :??

Don't you wanna just open up the skein and bury your face in it? Or knit a pillow? :eyebrow:

Seriously, it's awesome stuff. And with my first skein, I made a long skinny scarf. Co 20 sts, k2p2 ribbing, add a fringe. You could make a hat too but whats the fun if it isn't touching skin eh? Mittens maybe.

Whatever you decide to make, have fun!

pretty choice!...here is a pretty scarf pattern she used just one skein (http://bp2.blogger.com/_L_NUOFj2KkM/RcH0fov9KFI/AAAAAAAAAIY/NAbffO6W33Y/s1600-h/Malabrigo_Scarf_1.jpg) and here is the origional pattern (http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/archives/2006/10/12/one_row_handspun_scarf.html) which the previous linked person did except she knit lenghtwise instead of widthwise like the origional pattern called for. both are nice

I just got my first order of Mmmmalabrigo today -- two skeins in Pagoda and two in Jacinto!!

I love both colors. I'm seriously tempted to knit them into a security blanket (for myself, of course) :teehee:

Ooooh... maybe I'll treat myself to a one-skein scarf then! After I do the sweaters, that is. :oops:

Oohhh...they have pretty colors...I may have to go camping one more time, to get DH to OK this purchase.... :roflhard:

Hmmm, my monitor must be broken, I can't see the pictures!

Thanks for the suggestions, ladies!! I seriously cannot buy anymore yarn because I'm moving cross-country in less than 2 months and my boyfriend would have a coronary if he knew how much yarn I have. :oops: :oops: Unfortunately, I cannot stop looking at yarn stores online. Eeeek!

I've got to knit more from my stash!!

The first skein I bought, I just felt it for the first 2 days. Then I knit with it.
