You could certainly swatch it up and see how it likes the stitch pattern....

With the LOVELY color variations in Malabrigo, it might like to be a shrug or bolero sweater, too.... You could definitely wear that yarn ON your skin. Its SOOOOO soft!!

I agree...it is sooooo soft and wonderful, I'd want to make something I could wear next to my skin.

Also...Cozy? Is freaking monotonous, I'll never finish I fear But maybe if I were knitting with Malabrigo...

ok, it was NOT working as a Cozy

i don't think i want to make a sweater b/c of the pilling factor

any other ideas? shawl patterns?

please?

Yeah, three clapotis(es?) would probably be a little much!

I think you should throw them in a pile and roll around in them.
