Need some project help!

I’ve had knitters envy on this yarn for a while.

Malabrigo

I’ve seen other knitters use this brand with some amazing results. Every time I see their projects I say to myself, “I gotta get me some of that!”

This is my first purchase from Wolseley Wool – a beautiful skene of grey with a hint of purple Malabrigo yarn. I couldn’t not have this. Even though it’s a little pricey (compared to the retail store yarns I’ve been working with so far), this just called me over. Even the colour is just so perfect.

But now I’m faced with the worst dilemma EVAH!

What do I do with this lil pretty?

I don’t want to waste it. It needs to be make into something that will show it off in the most perfect way.

What would you make with it? I’d love to hear your suggestions and ideas! Help a girl out, please!!

    Malabrigo yarn is so soft that you’ll want to have it next to your skin so I suggest a cowl. There are so many great patterns on Ravelry I wouldn’t know which one to suggest. BUT when I have a great yarn in a color that I love I first search Ravelry for the yarn in the color I have and see what projects have been made with it. If nothing strikes my fancy I then just search the yarn. I’ve found some nice patterns that way:) Good Luck!

    Dear NothingbutKnit2: That’s a great way to look at how to start a project and deal with a dilemma such as this! I was thinking cowl… or fingerless gloves… or… or… but the rational for using this loverly (yes, I’m sure that’s a word!) yarn just makes so much sense. Thanks!! Now to find the perfect pattern!
