Wicked sweater KAL

I am leading a Knit along (ravelry link) on Ravelry for the Wicked sweater. A few of you know that I made this sweater. Mine was a wicked drunken disorderly sweater which I don't wear very often because of fit and a few other factors, so I have been looking at yarns and thoughts of what I wanted to knit it in. In February, I decided to blow my Christmas money on Malabrigo. Hmmmm.... so yummy. And since some projects are refusing to leave the needles, I had not gotten to casting on for this project. Now we are on the cusp of Malabrigo March, which is being sponsored by the Malabrigo Junkies on ravelry. Come join me if you are interested in knitting this sweater. Some people are even talking about casting on for this in laceweight malabrigo.

Marabrigo March is where the Malabrigo Junkies will try to send Malabrigo up the yarn popularity rankings in Ravelry during the month of March. There will be prizes awarded for most Malabrigo projects cast on, most creative photo involving Malabrigo, best use of color, etc. All this information can be found on the Junkies group page.

  • Places to buy Malabrigo on the web are listed on orata's blog. I encourage you to buy from your LYS if they have it for sale. I am sure that the online stores will be running low this month because of the focus on Malabrigo.
