Mini Sock FO's and my first Malabrigo WIP
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


http://www.groupepp.com/dishbout/kpatterns/knit4.html

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!

Nice work! The stockings are adorable, and I love the scarf! Your dd and her roommate are very lucky girls!

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!!
