Tell me, what would you do with the two skeins of Malabrigo yarn if you won this month’s GIVEAWAY?
I have made several projects with just a few skeins of this luxurious yarn. Maybe I should share them with you again to get you thinking…
The first time I used Malabrigo, it was for my hubby, Richard. I bought two skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in Tortuga.
Just two skeins gave me three wonderful projcets – Jacques Cousteau Hat, Ken Gloves and Cigar Gloves. The gloves don’t fit but I can hardly blame the yarn but the hat gets two big thumbs up from Mr Picky.
So now that I have road tested Malabrigo yarn and fallen in love with it, I quickly searched for a project for myself. With four skeins of Malabrigo Wosted in American Beauty, I knitted my first cardigan and my first giveaway prize.
I even had enough to make a baby hat for Jolene‘s son and crochet hearts (in the last photograph below) for my lovely family back in Singapore.
And when a dear friend lost a loved one and wanted a handknitted scarf, I can only think of making it with Malabrigo Lace. She picked Alpine Pearl and, like me, fell in love with the Muir shawl I made for her.
With less than a skein leftover, a Baktus scarf was soon knitted and is the most worn scarf I own.
But if you have children, not cats, they shouldn’t miss out on being comforted by ultra soft jumpers handknitted with Malabrigo, of course.
