What would you do with 4 skeins of MMMMMM?
My dh gave me a great coupon book good for 15 days of Valentine's day love. One of the coupons was for a day of gifts....who wouldn't love that?

Today he has given me AMAZING glass beads, clothes, jewelry and body wash. And an incredible, gorgeous rain forrest shower system - the kind that you mount on your shower wall, and jets of water shoot out in a vertical line. Oh, it's heaven on earth!!!!!!

He also surprised me with 4 beautiful skeins of malabrigo in natural. What to make now? He made me promise that I would only use it for myself.

What would you do with it?

Wow...what an amazing husband - very creative and loving. Lucky gal!

I don't know off-hand what I'd make...are you on Ravelry? You can put in that type of yarn and see pattern suggestions. That might help.

I love the promise of making something for yourself...that is so sweet!

WOW you made out like a bandit today !!! As for the MMM yarn, what about a shrug or shawl for yourself. I have fallen in love with shrugs b/c I am always cold and they are quick and easy to put on wiht any outfit and keep me snuggly warm.

okay, seriously now, this is getting out of control. I really think you should be passing on some of the love and handing those skeins over... my address is...

You lucky girl you. Hooray. I think you have to do, like, some knitted lingerie or something...to be fair, ya know...

clapotis (that's what i'm doing with my four GORGEOUS skeins of holly hock. )

wicked

before i start linking to all of their patterns (which i almost just did ), check out the patterns at zephyr style. you can knit most of them with your four skeins (but you can only pick one, of course ). i absolutely love their patterns, although i haven't been able to get any yet. i'll be ordering my yarn for the 28thirty this week. now i just have to decide on a color.
