I just bought myself a skein of malabrigo last weekend, it was on sale for 30% off, so I figured I'd give it a try... Everyone has sooo much good stuff to say about it, and it felt so nice in the store, I figured I could handle paying about $13 for it... Anyways, I think I'm going to try making a hat with it, since I've found so many cute hat patterns..

How did the hooded scarf turn out? I've been drooling over that pattern and the sort of shrug/shawl too.

For the short sleeve, the pattern calls for 500-800 yards of worsted (they used Artyarns Supermerino). The long sleeve calls for 800-1100 yards. I have heard that many people have used more yarn than the pattern calls for.

Hope that helps!

I seriously don't want to sound like a total ignoramus, but WHAT THE HECK ARE ALL THESE PATTERNS YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT?
What's a clapotis, etc.?

most of the patterns mentioned are popular ones, you can always do a search through google and usually find the pattern and lots of pics to look at

I bought two skeins at 65 yards each. Does anyone have a scarf pattern they suggest? I'm a long thinner type scarf person. Thanks!

LOL! It sounds like a disease, doesn't it?

I'm sorry, I can't come in to work today. I have clapotis.

I ordered it here:

I ordered it early last week and got a quick reply from them that they would be ordering it on Wednesday and would let me know when it is ready to ship. I have no idea where they are ordering it from and haven't heard from them since then. I'll let you know how long it takes....

I hope this ends up being a good online source - they have some really nice stuff!
