January MFPP Release!


We are so excited to announce the first e-book release in a whole upcoming year of patterns. Who better to start out the year than the delightful Nina Machlin Dayton, who has long provided lovely, popular Malabrigo patterns to Ravelry members and her blog readers alike?

Nina's collection of accessory pieces is soft, luxurious, and sure to provide more than a few staples for your late winter wardrobe. She drew inspiration from the writer Charles Dickens for this collection, and his descriptions of winter. Part of the loveliness of this collection is the color palette -- soft, muted, frosty tones with the deep greens and blues of shadows on snow and under evergreens.

We hope you enjoy her collection as much as we do! Be sure to check out the collection here: The Best of Times e-book on Ravelry

New Year, New Features!

We're excited to announce some of the new features you'll see here on the blog in 2011! We are working hard to bring you a new, improved blog that you can visit for pattern ideas, inspiration, amusement and news about our yarns and our company!

The Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project

This is a monthly e-book release from various independent designers! Exclusively online and through Ravelry, these e-books can be purchased with credit card or Paypal. You can buy the patterns in a group or solo, and each month will have an interesting, beautiful palette and theme! The e-books will be released sometime in the month and will always be announced here!

Weekly Color Features

We know you love your weekly color feature almost as much as I love writing them, so these will continue into the next year! It is always exciting to look through something lovely and find the colorways in our yarn palette.

Featured Knitting

For a long time, I've wanted to highlight particularly beautiful projects from Ravelry users. In the next year, we're going to be putting up small features that show off some of the most beautiful Malabrigo projects -- lovely photos, lovely knitting, and lovely people!

Designer and Blogger Interviews

I really enjoyed interviewing so many people in the last year and hope to double our knitting interviews in this year! There is something wonderful about exploring someone's projects, inspirations, and studio spaces, and I want to bring you more of this!

Stay tuned for more surprises and features as we think of them!
