|There seems to be a group (sub forum) for just about anything on ravelry.com. Yarn brands are definitely a given, and one of my favourites is the Malabrigo Junkies. It is a wonderful group where you can get help finding the perfect pattern for your lone skein of Malabrigo yarn, whether it is Merino Worsted, Silky Merino, or beta testing Gusanito (I really want to get some of that stuff!).|
Last March, the group moderators and owners decided it would be fun to see how far up the list of most popular yarns (ravelry keeps a top 10 list based on users projects) we could push Malabrigo Merino Worsted, by casting on projects starting March 1st. We are repeating the madness, only this year, it isn't limited to the Merino Worsted.
They have created KALs (knit alongs) for a bunch of patterns, plus a couple of KALs that are more open ended. So here are links to the ravelry project pages for the projects I plan on casting on (and hopefully off!) this month!
Merino Worsted Projects:
Garter Stitch Mitts, in Peach Tree 50% done
Foliage Hat, in Red Java
Silky Merino Project:
Darkside Cowl, in Indieceta
Bella Mittens, in Brisa
Cherry Garcia cowl, also in Brisa
None of these should take more than a few days.. but I am also planing on spinning up a pretty rainbow 2 ply.. so hopefully I'll accomplish all of this!
I'll post a picture of all the projects and yarn as soon as the Chunky in Brisa arrives. :)
