Malabrigo March: FO #3 & #4

The needles are still on fire for Malabrigo March and I still can't get enough of it.  These are the latest finished knits.
Shalom Cardigan by Meghan McFarLane: This will be a sample at my LYS, Mew Mew's Yarn Shop.  I was in the store one day and the owner, Sue, mentioned the Malabrigo Chunky was not selling well.  I told her she needs to have a sample knit out of one of the variegated yarns.  The variegated colorways are so intimidating when they are in their skeins but less so when they are viewed caked or knitted up. So, she asked if I would knit something and we decided on a quick, free pattern.  This is Malabrigo Worsted in Col China colorway.

And these fun things are slippers, Bigfoot / Ogre Slippers by Cheryl Andrews knit in Malabrigo Worsted, Marron oscurro colorway.  Take note...your toes do not go inside of the knitted toes.  :-)  And the best thing about them...they're for me!

That's it for now.  I do have my fifth Malabrigo March project on the needles and I picked up some yarn, just today at Mew Mew's, for another Phoebe Hat.

Lovely FO's Amy! You are so prolific it astounds me. Sue was wearing the ogre slippers in the shop the other day, I must make some, too.

Oooh, I have just started stalking the Shalom cardigan. How does it look on? Your version is beautiful!

Linda - thank you! The slippers are fun...and the boys like playing with toes. :-)

Leslie - Thank you, too! The Shalom, here, is a sample knit for my LYS. So I knit the pattern as written, which I find to be too big for me. I am knitting another one that I'm modifying for worsted weight yarn and to fit me. I have knit this 2 other times and accidentally felted them so this one will finally be one that I can wear. :-)
