What to Knit? September 2, 2008

Filed under: help,knitting,malabrigo — jeanius80 @ 6:24 pm

Ok dear readers… I need some help!

I have these three skeins of Malabrigo Worsted (100% wool).

Peach Tree (2 skeins- 430 yards)

Red Java (1 skein-215 yards)

malabrigo merino 006

Do they go together? The colors in the photos are pretty dead on. Also, pattern suggestions? I have been scouring ravelrys’ pattern search engine and haven’t had any luck. *sigh*

I was thinking of knitting a shrug or short sleeved vest/tank using the red java as the ribbing.. and the peach tree as the body. Maybe something knit sideways and alternate for verticle stripes? Horizontal striping is out (looks baaaaad on me lol)

Thanks for any help!

    I’d say that from the photos they would go together. Do a quickie test swatch to double check. Can’t wait to see what you do with them.

    maybe hat/gloves set.? You’ll probably have enough left over for a keyhole scarf, too.
