Aren't Moms the BEST? mmmmalibrigo

Oh my! I’ve been talking about how I want to try Malibrigo after reading all the posts on here about it…today my Mom surprised me with 6 (yes 6!) skeins of Malibrigo in Vaa colorway. She said she was in the local fabric store and saw it, knew how much I wanted to try it - wasn’t sure how much I would need (not a knitter) so just “guessed”. Could anything be nicer???

So…now…what to make with it? I’m thinking a vest or maybe a sweater? Oh! off to look through patterns! Just knew you guys would understand my excitement!!!:woot::woohoo::woot:

Wow! What a fantastic mother you have grin Make sure to tell her we all think she’s great :wink:

And enjoy playing with your mmmmm… I so wish I could, but allergies prevent me cry

Congratulations! Enjoy it for me, as I’m allergic too!! You must have a wonderful mom!

Yeah - she really is the best, and my best friend too. I have my big 5-0 looming next month and I keep catching her making “notes” when I talk about different knitting relating things on my wish list …so I am guessing this birthday may have a theme :roflhard:

Haven’t chosen a pattern yet - but I’ll keep you all posted!

Lady Violet - camera is on the fritz so no yarn porn right now, but hopefully I’ll get it straightened out and be able to post a picture soon. :slight_smile:

wow! I was at a yarn store in Superior, WI and they had malabrigo. It is sooo soft! I only had $7 though so I couldn’t buy a skein.

Oooh, I’ve been reading all about malabrigo too, but I have to actually eyeball it at my lys. Rainberry I’m right there with you! Too broke at the moment, waiting a little bit for cash flow increase! What I’m doing instead is “practicing” my patterns with acrylic. I’ve just recently returned to knitting so wanna make sure I can still ‘do’ it. Oh, and by the way, have you all been to the vogue knitting site recently? They have some free downloadable patterns that are the bomb! http://www.vogueknitting.com/vkm/?q=node/403

Thanks for that link giedre11 - took a quick look but am off to spend some time there browsing!
