Believe it or not, this was my first time knitting with Malabrigo. I’ve had it in my stash before, but for some reason or another I always destashed it. Apparently I’ve been missing out, because it is super soft and I loved knitting with it! I’ve used Manos del Uruguay a few times, and now I know that I like Malabrigo much, much more. The Black Forest colorway isn’t one that I would have selected if Parikha hadn’t used it in her pattern, but I’m glad I went with it because I like the various shades of brown.
