Malabrigo March Madness 2011

Are you aware of Malabrigo March???? If not, you should visit the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry. Each March, there are KALs & CALs, contests, prizes, giveaways, sales, and more - it's just an exciting month all around!

My knitting of late has been super secret and I haven't been able to share it with anyone - which is exciting, but in a super secret way!

I have a lot of selfish knitting planned for March, and here are a few of the things I plan on casting on this week:

A Modish Cowl by Westknits. I'm planning on knitting this using a few colors of Malabrigo Twist, which is a new-ish yarn that I just adore.

A Summer Flies Shawl by Donna Griffin of Holly and Ella Knits. Isn't this just lovely? I have some smoke gray Malabrigo Silky Merino in my stash that would make this a little more modern and less feminine, which is more my style.
