Don't want to sound like a moron on the phone as I call local yarn stores looking for the colorway "apple cinnamon."

I pronounce it like it would be if it were Spanish. "Mal" like..well, kinda like "maul," I guess :teehee: and "abrigo" ah-bree-go.

I don't rightly know. Most people I see touching the stuff just moan and writhe, in the throes of yarngasm. :shrug: And then there are the screamers.... :shock:

I guess it does not matter how to say it... I cannot find it anywhere even remotely local. Bummer.

Well, today I went to my fave yarn shop and got some yummilicious Mmmmm...see.http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_MollyMalabrigoyum.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/MollyMalabrigoyum.jpg) Yep, that is the lovely Molly colorway...4 scrumptious hanks. They will be another "A Touch of Whimsy scarf" but this one will be longer, hat and possibly fingerless gloves to match :cheering:
Just look http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_MollyMalabrigoyum6.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/MollyMalabrigoyum6.jpg) at the yarny goodness!
When i was in the shop today my friend (the owner) told me that she had received this, the 1st shipment, just a couple of days ago :cheering: :cheering: somehow I knew it was there :teehee:

The Yahoo list Knitswap. I snatched it up as soon as I saw it. I mean really, $5? I'd be stupid NOT to get it. It's practically a requirement at that price. It's a pretty green, too.

I saw a version of Knitty's Coronet knitted out of it and fell in love. Big love.

I don't know if I'll be able to knit it or not. It may just become my favorite stash puppy. (Stash puppy = yarn that's just for petting)
