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..

2 scrunchables, one almost-finished pair of fingerless mitts, Wicked sweater, the hooded scarf/bonnet from Knit 2 Together, and a hat. I have some in my stash (some? a LOT, really) that is designated for other projects, mostly sweaters.
How did the hooded scarf turn out? I've been drooling over that pattern and the sort of shrug/shawl too.

i have some and was wondering the same thing! those of you who knit wicked with mmmm, how many hanks does it take? i have been wanting to knit this, and in mmm would be wonderful
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 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!
