for the love of Malabrigo / by jen geigley

 You know how it goes. You get a couple of insanely cool hand-dyed super soft hanks of Malabrigo that look something like this.
 Wind them into a ball like this.
And then you have to pick out and knit the most perfect cowl pattern, like this. 
Which is the Honey Cowl by Ann Maria for Madelinetosh. Which you probably already have figured out by now, as it's quite popular. I used two skeins of Malabrigo worsted merino in Mariposa. I hung onto this colorway for a million years because I loved it so much.
I made the longer version (using two skeins) that can be worn long or doubled up and wrapped around your neck twice. I kind of love it.
And then, I had to make something out of the other skein I had been holding onto for far too long; this cowl was made out of Malabrigo chunky in this crazy Brillante colorway that I just drooled over when I first saw it. I am a huge sucker for the weird colors!
So I knitted up this quick and easy Delores Park cowl by Parikha Mehta while we watched 'Inception' last night and wow, I just might keep going. Spring is almost here and I need to bust out a few more projects before, you know, it's July and I'll be hanging poolside or something. (Oooh, that sounds nice!) So, what's on your needles right now?
