So I took a little trip to the LYS after work today to get a tapestry needle to finish off my first pair of socks. Of course it resulted in getting a few more things (could I seriously leave with a teeny tiney needle? I think not). I picked up the Fiber Trends felted clog pattern since I know I'll eventually want to make them. A little cotton for some dishcloths. But the real thing I'm excited about is my Mmmmmmalabrigo!!!! Its my first time ever touching or even seeing it in person and let me tell you its just as beautiful and soft as everyon's been saying. I got a lime and blue colorway, its so pretty, the picture really can't do it justice. I'm going to make a scarf for my dad out of it. I can't wait to knit it up!!! I think I'm in love with mmmmm.

Windsor Buttons. It's on Temple Place in Downtown Crossings (just a 2 min walk from Park St. T stop). They had a pretty good selection of colors!

Hello Stiney, I know the question wasn't directed at me but I think I might be able to help you. The store I buy my yarn at is at Sparks Craft Studio. That is the studio that taught me to knit and has me hooked. They are moving from Somerville to Cambridge next week. They have some gorgeous yarns including Mmmmalabrigo. Plus they have wine and craft nights. :clink:

And I also have to say that the orginal color of mmmalabrigo that I wanted they only had 1 skein. I was thinking about buying some Noro since the colors are so pretty but then I felt a scarf they had knitted of mmmmalabrigo and I was amazed at how soft it knits up. I knew I had to get it!

Someone was just telling me about Spark, I'll have to check them out. And Windsor Buttons. :) We should have a Boston knit-together! With malabrigo. :shifty: :teehee:

You've got yourself a nice haul there, so many people have been talking about this 'Malabrigo' yarn, what IS it about it? Like the clog's pattern also.
