I don't know if this is the place to post this, but I was cruising the internet looking for a good price on Malabrigo and found this company has a huge clearance sale going on. www.knit2purl2.com
All yarn is half price! Malabrigo for $6 per skein! Needless to say, my credit card is smoking!
No affiliation, just dumb luck checking out websites!

I am broke... so had to break out the "yarn emergency" credit card!

This will be my first ever skein(s) of MMMMMM.

Sounds tempting....I love the colors paris night and orchid. I may have to buy at least one skein for that price...:)

Okay so this is going to sound like a dumb quesion, but what can I make with this yarn?

:shifty: I may have just cleared out two of the colors.

I have satisfied my MMMMMMmalabrigo cravings for at least a little while.

I ordered some Jewel Blue, some Emerald Blue, and the rest of the Hollyhock.

Ah! Now the wait for the postman! :woohoo:

And just for the record, Lisa, when my dh gets the bill I'm blaming it on you. :happydance:

Best,
Susan

The temptation won out... I ordered 2 skeins of paris night, 1 skein of purple mystery and 1 skein of red mahogany...:angelgrin:

Uh-oh. We're gonna have a problem. Her site doesn't update quantities after each order...

ETA: Supposedly, Pagoda and Jewel Blue. I guess we'll see how it shakes out! :help:

brendajos
08-09-2007, 12:33 PM
Just thought i would point out it doesn't look like the numbers are updating on there so i have a feeling some of us are going to be disappointed.


Oh and it isn't just the Malabrigo on sale. i was looking around their site and it looks like just about everything is on sale.

08-09-2007, 12:37 PM
Thanks so much!!!
Ohhh, I just purchased an INSANE amount of Malabrigo. It is my absolute favorite yarn and soooo worth every penny at the regular price. cloud9 I could not resist at this sale price. Oh I hope, I hope they still have some left for me still! :pray:

LBoater
08-09-2007, 12:38 PM
I noticed that too. She is quick to respond by email if she doesn't have the quantity to fill your order and will offer alternatives.
I ordered last night and Jody already informed me that the shipment was going out today!:woot:

robynbird
08-09-2007, 12:48 PM
Well...I didnt' get the mmmmalabrigo but I did get the Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb in Aslan!!! I've wanted it forever and well...I couldn't resist this time. :) I bought all 7 skeins she had. :yay:

marykz
08-09-2007, 12:51 PM
OMG- thanks so much- I investigated and not only did they have the Adrienne Vittadini pattern book on sale that I've been wanting- the yarn for the sweater I want from it was half price too!!!!! and I bought my first skein of tofutsies so I'll be ready to try socks!! There are a bunch of patterns on sale as well as yarn. some things are sold out- but there was plenty of MMM left, as well as Tofutsies and Lornas Laces! (and the shipping was cheap!) :clink:

hunterjenn
08-09-2007, 12:53 PM
:yay: She just called me to tell me she didn't have as much of the Pagoda as I ordered, and helped me find another color. GREAT customer service! :thumbsup:

ChristinaKnits
08-09-2007, 12:58 PM
oooh thank you! I ordered some to try finally, and some Tofutsies, and Panda Cotton..and...lol *sigh*

08-09-2007, 01:08 PM
OMG!!! I thank you for posting this - my credit card on the other hand is mumbling curses :roflhard: Can't wait to see what I actually get of what I ordered! Tried for lots of different things as there were all kinds of yarns I've been wanting to try...didn't even pick out all I wanted and still had to go back and cut my shopping cart in half:roflhard:

KnittingNat
08-09-2007, 01:10 PM
AAARGGHHH! She ships worldwide, but Israel is not in the list of the countries, so i can't check out!!!:hair::hair::hair:! I hope my Malabrigo will last :pray:

Carla1019
08-09-2007, 01:25 PM
:woot:Thanks for the sale page. I just order 4 skeins of Malabrigo. I had gotten 4 skeins on vacation, But really could not find any thing to make with it that just turned me on. So with the new 4 skeins I will have 8 to work with.:woot: The first 4 is a muti color, and the new 4 that I just order is in the Red Mahogany, which I think will match pretty good where I can do a stripe.

zkimom
08-09-2007, 01:26 PM
I'm good except for the Jewel Blue that Jenn snatched up first :tap:

(No hard feelings, really Jenn, that color is YUMMY! :inlove:)

Now to see if she's got the Orchid or the Violet instead.

Best,
Susan

Just ordered some Mmmmmm (Paris Nights, Verdes and Little Lovely)and some Lorna's Laces (Fresh Strip and Crazy Stripe)...we'll see if it all goes through! This will be a real treat for me since I usually buy most of my yarn at Michaels and it gets really boring looking at the same {cheap} stuff all the time!

Thanks so much for the tip! Now if only those Namaste bags were on sale somewhere.... LOL

I think the paris nights are all gone. She sent me an email stating she had 2 skiens of it, but they were different dye lots. I asked for emerald blue or orchid as a replacement. I also ordered purple mystery and red mahogany.

I know what you mean about those namaste bags. I've been wanting one for so long, but the prices keep me from it...

bip
08-09-2007, 03:08 PM
I am worried. I was all happy because I thought I got 11 Sunset, 9 Verdes and 2 Lime Blue, but now I realize that the qtys weren't updating so maybe I won't get what I wanted :verysad:

I haven't heard from her yet, but she is probably swamped with all of these orders!

LBoater
08-09-2007, 03:35 PM
Um... for those of you looking for the Namaste bags check out the www.Divaknitting.com website, they have 35% off on some!

Just call me the enabler!

Crap.

Im seriously off yarn buying cause of school supplies! :pout:

3 kids to get outfitted...and NOW the Mmmmmmalabrigo goes on sale? Not fair.

I want apple green & citrus so bad.

08-09-2007, 04:21 PM
I am so with you papergirl....
I really want to try some of those fantastic springy colors, but if I bought it it would have to wait for me to get through all of the projects I have sworn to finish. :pout:

Ive never seen Mmmmmm live in person before. The one LYS I went too doesnt have it.

DH would have a fit...:doh:

jeanius80
08-09-2007, 06:42 PM
so i caved and bought some sock yarns... 6 skeins of lornas (2 each of bee stripe, black watch and devon) a skein of tufutsie, and 3 skeins of mmmmm in apple green. i briefly was going to buy enough mmm for a sweater (10!!) but that was pushing it....

syndactylus
08-09-2007, 06:54 PM
it won't let me buy anything!
:pout:
wth?

kemp
08-09-2007, 06:57 PM
I didn't get a confirmation email when I ordered so I emailed to let her know. She said she has been inundated with orders so maybe she already sold out :shrug:

marykz
08-09-2007, 06:59 PM
maybe she is swamped- she replied to my order about an hour after I checked out saying she'd run out of one color of tofutsies and asked for a second choice.(since it was a spur of the moment addition I don't mind changing colors at all)

(have we all melted our credit cards?? LOL!!)
if you are determined, maybe calling her shop #? or emailing?

syndactylus
08-09-2007, 07:12 PM

it went through at least for a minute just now!

I really want to THANK YOU! I just ordered some of that yummy tufotsies yarn (8 colorways) I thought I might just as well stock up on it. :woot::blooby:I'm afraid to go back in that site. I do have a problem when it comes to yarn sales.
I just checked my email and I got an email from them. It looks like all 8 colorways are coming my way ;~)

G J
08-09-2007, 09:26 PM
thanks for posting this! I just ordered my first MMMMalabrigo in verde (is that a good color?) and some sockotta and tofutsies. Good thing DH is out of town!:roflhard:

Actually, he wouldn't mind... (too much...)

KT120
08-09-2007, 09:28 PM
I do believe she is indudated as she sent me an email saying so. She let me know no more blue lime or little lovelies but she let me substitute with black. So, it looks like I just bought 15 skeins of Mmmmalabrigo in total. Thanks again to the OP. :muah:

Indygirl
08-09-2007, 09:46 PM
I'm just interested to know. What do all you use the Malabringo for. I have never even touched it. I might want to go shop again:wink:

08-09-2007, 09:57 PM
I am getting sooo stressed out. I ordered around noon, and I got the confirmation e-mail. Then I came back to this tread and based on the post here it sounded likely that she was out of the verdes and maybe the blue lime too, but I haven't heard from her. I waaant it! Fingers crossed!!!

I might go back and order some more Karaoke too, I really liked working with it for the hat I just finished (in the FO forum).

...dotty...
08-09-2007, 10:23 PM

Stupid question, what is the gauge for this yarn?

chrislt8
08-09-2007, 10:48 PM
Well - I got an e-mail from her just a few minutes ago letting me know that several of what I ordered were sold out and asking what I wanted to do...but I over-ordered anyway (I am SO bad when it comes to yarn sales:eyes:) so I told her just to ship what she could fill of my original order (in full quantities I ordered). Won't feel "sure" until I get a shipping confirmtion! ....I did lose out on the malibrigo Paris Night but I got the Golden Ochre and Emerald Blue I wanted! plus some bamboo, and Noro, and .... :aww: :doh::woot: Can you tell? slightly mixed emotions! :roflhard:

Just thought I would share this...

If anyone was looking to make any purchases within the next few hours, don't bother right now. I just visited the site again to see if there was any tofutsies left. There's a note saying that the shopping cart has been disabled (for 36 hours) so that she can catch up with orders.

Thank goodness I placed an order for some Malabrigo earlier today which has already shipped.

KnittingNat
08-10-2007, 06:40 AM
I can't believe it!She answered me saying she can't take any orders till Saturday morning! I think it just not right, because i tried to order when this thread was only posted and because her website doesn't know any other countries except US and Western Europe, i got stuck and she didn't even tried to offer some kind of solution, just sorry... I hope everyone gets their order ok, but i'm going to get my MMMalabrigo elsewhere...

08-10-2007, 07:26 AM
I ordered bunches of Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock yarn - so excited. I just bought 8 skeins at my LYS at $11 each and got these for $5.50 each. Woooohoooo!

08-10-2007, 07:52 AM
I checked my junk mail folder this morning (thanks for the tip, ladies!) and low and behold, a shipping notice.:cheering:

I'm not sure if she sent me the substitute color I asked for but my MMMMMmmmmm is on it's way.

Has anyone clued her in to this forum so she has an idea of why there was so much response to her sale? We should let her know she had a whole topic just concerning her yarn sale!

Hope everyone gets what they wished for (or ordered as the case may be!)

Best,
Susan

This is what I get for not checking the forum for a day!! :teehee:
I really wanted to get some MMMmmmm for my mom, and some tofutsies for me! I guess I'll just have to wake up early tomorrow and place my order before everything is sold out!

Thanks to the OP for enabling us all!!!!

LBoater
08-10-2007, 11:49 AM
Holly, I'll admit my original reason for enabling everyone was to rid myself of the temptation to go back and buy more! I figured if she was out of yarn, no temptation!

I just talked to Jody at the site and she's shut down her website. She's WAYYYY behind on orders, so who knows if we'll get what we ordered! We can hope!:pray:

Edited to add: I told her it was on this site. She figured it was something like that!

I placed two orders yesterday. I ordered some(lots) ;) of the tufotsies sock yarn. About an hr. after that I ordered 10 skeins of the malabringo. The order confirmation looked like it went through. I haven't received anything saying different. Lets just hope so.:woot::woohoo:

VictoiseC
08-10-2007, 05:32 PM
SHOOT! Does that mean you guys have cleaned the Malabrigo out? (the fact the page won't load) :verysad: boo hoo I've got to keep a better eye on you all.

How about that Reynolds Soft Sea Wool?

Any other super yarns I should grab. I know Debbie Bliss is nice but.... Alpaca Indiecita?

08-10-2007, 08:10 PM
The sale was listed on the Knitty sale-spotter board too, and there were a zillion posts...

I hope I get my LL! my daughters were so cute picking out their colors. :mrgreen:

Hi! :waving:

The lady is leaving the business, so this is a close-out sale! I tried to buy some yarn tonight, and she is not taking any orders at the moment. She is totally overwhelmed by orders at the moment! HALF PRICE on almost everything in stock...no wonder! Well, I'll try again tomorrow, and then it will have to wait til I get back from the wilderness.

BTW: the Malabrigo link on her Yarn homepage had an error and did not open up.

Hmmph!:gah:

GinnyG
08-11-2007, 07:32 AM
I set my alarm and got up early, thought I would order some more mmmmmmalibrigo. Sadly there is still an error message on the mmmmm page. I wonder if that mean she is sold out? I checked other yarns and some are there and a few have error messages as well.

I just put an order in for about 70 bucks worth--it said it went through without any errors--or it didn't say it had any mmmmmmmmalibrigo--but the shipping was only qbout 5 bucks which is pretty good compared to whqt I usually pay! I'm shopping mostly for baby type yarns now that Katherine is here!

It's like a surprise package winging its way to me! Just praying :pray: that I did get some of the MMMmmmm

I did email her that if she didn't have the sock colors I wanted that she could substitute similar colorways in the same brands. Maybe that helped.

I bought some yarn during this sale. I've been talking to Jody through email, but I still don't know if I'm getting what I ordered. This is a quote she posted to the website earlier:

EVERY EFFORT IS BEING MADE TO SHIP THE COLORWAY ON YOUR ORDER....BUT IF STOCK IS DEPLETED, SUBSTITUTIONS MAY OCCUR. ALL SALES FINAL.... NO RETURNS ACCEPTED!

In her emails she said she will be making some substitutions without informing customers. So I thought some of you may want to be forewarned!

I think she keeps shutting it down because her orders are getting out of control and she still wants to keep her same day shipping promise. I ordered some more yarn Saturday morning and got my shipping notice today. Keep watching, if she doesn't give you an ETA of when it will be turned back on. I think she is also trying to update the numbers of what is left before she turns it back on too. :thumbsup:

Well I wasn't able to order any Mmm but I did order 2 skeins of SWTC Karaoke (Mermaid) and 2 skeins of Paint Box (Painted Desert). I'm soo excited. I've never worked with any of these yarns but I heard that they're wonderful. Hopefully they will arrive by Tuesday to make me feel better from my biopsy I'm having. Ahhhh! :)

abunchofus
08-12-2007, 02:08 PM
I'll keep watching for it to be turned back on - there is a lorna's laces color that I've wanted - it supports breast cancer which my aunt is a survivor and I lost my step-mom to 3 years ago so its a cause that is special to me.

I'll keep watching!
thanks ladies!

08-12-2007, 03:03 PM
I am so bad... I cannot believe how much I ordered - and of course I did not need anymore yarn.... Oh well....Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb for $15.00.... That is amazing.

I was able to order it yesterday AM. This AM I got an Email asking for another color preference for one for one of the yarns.

I just got notification my order was shipped... all I can say is WOW to that!

Hopefully they will arrive by Tuesday to make me feel better from my biopsy I'm having. Ahhhh!



Kaytee- I hope all goes well with your biopsy. Please post and let us know, ok?

I placed a huge order yesterday (25 skeins!!! :thud:) But I could not pass up Lorna's Laces for $5.50. I just couldn't. At least that's my justification...lol.

I'm waiting to hear if it was available. The charge went through, so we'll see.... I'm anxiously waiting for a shipping notice. :)

I ordered 7 skeins of Blue SKy cotton Saturday morning and received an automatic confirmation, but as of mid-morning Monday no shipping notification. I emailed Jody just to see if my order went through and I just heard back from her and she voided my order... all sold out she said. I'm so sad.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I placed my order early Thurs and received a confirmation order later that day.

I emailed her this morning since I've heared other people already receiving their order and I'm not getting everything I ordered only about half. Oh well, I guess I should have emailed her earlier. I just figured I was getting it all since I got the order confirmation.:shrug:

But I am still excited that I will be getting some. No MMMalabrigo (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?p=933041#post933041)though. :???:

I got the Nicole yarn in a pretty olive green/black multi- its the same yarn as the pattern- just a different color. if I can beat my camera into submission, I'll make pics! (It is a little unhappy after the splash party this weekend- I'm hoping I didn't lose any pics!)

The pattern doesn't look too hard, but I get in trouble with lace. Luckily, the lace is just at the top and not all over! I just love AV patterns- my Mom made the most gorgeous AV sweater for me this past winter. (tan, cabled on the shoulders- cashmere yarn.... ahhhhh for cool weather!)

I'm going to MAKE myself finish a few WIP so I can concentrate fully on this one.....

FYI, if you haven't received a shipping notification I would email Jody. I ordered Thursday morning and received my order confirmation later that day.

I emailed her yesterday morning (Mon) since I noticed that people here were receiving their yarn already. Apparently, my order had NOT gone completely through or something. :?? I am getting about half my order. AND I did received a shipping notice last night. I'm still very :woohoo:excited but was really looking forward to trying some new yarns. :sad:

Well, evidently she voided my order. I placed it on the 8th, so I guess I won't be trying Malabrigo unless someone wants to share theirs! I've been reading this thread and wondering why she called or e-mailed some people to offer substitute yarns and others she just voided their order. You might know which group I would fall into!Seriously, if anyone has any to spare that they would like to sell, please contact me. It's not in my price range to buy it full price, that's why I was so excited over this sale.

i ordered Lorna's in bee stripe, but got sassy stripe (i actually already have this color, anyone want to swap?)
ordered devon but got cool, and ordered black watch and got pioneer (that was for dh. not sure if he'll like this colorway) and ordered tofutsie in 723 but got 722. 723 had pink this doesn't, but it's for me, and i like it anyway :)

I've been reading this thread and wondering why she called or e-mailed some people to offer substitute yarns and others she just voided their order.

I think it was a bit like an avalanche. At first she was trying to keep up, then she realized that would be impossible and put the note on her website about the impromptu substitutions.

I ordered Thursday early afternoon and got the confirmation e-mail. Since others here were saying she was calling about changes, I figured she would call/e-mail. By Friday morning when I hadn't heard, I e-mailed her. She responded that she thought she had e-mailed me earlier that morning to tell me that she didn't have all the colors/qtys I wanted. There wasn't anything in my inbox or spam folder. If I had waited to call, I probably wouldn't have gotten any of what I wanted. Scary thought! (though it would have been better for the bank account!)

I think she just got totally overwhelmed, plus, she's going out of business so she doesn't have to worry about losing customers.

08-17-2007, 11:06 PM
No, I e-mailed her when I didn't hear anything about it being shipped, and she just said that she had voided my order. All I wanted was just TWO little skeins of it! Have you tried Malabrigo before, or are you another first-timer? I second your WAAH!

GinnyG
08-17-2007, 11:36 PM
No, I'm an addict:flirt:

I just went back through my bulk folder and I did receive an email from her that my order was voiced :-( I find it hard to belive that out of 19 skeins there wasn't ONE color she could have sent.

I think the whole thing is pretty cheesey. If you have a computer ordering system you should be able to track inventory without too much difficulty. I can understand a mistake here and there. But there is really no excuse for the massive amount of voided orders that seem to have occurred.

Maybe it's a good thing she is going out of business!!

chrislt8
08-17-2007, 11:51 PM
GinnyG - I think she really did try her best and was just completely overwhelmed with orders - her sale made this forum as well as another (and perhaps more I am not aware of) and I think everyone jumped on the bandwagon immediately because of the great prices. I got a lot of what I ordered (although not all), it came very quickly, and she did e-mail about the items she could not fill on my order. Remember, this was a closing sale so she was just selling off what inventory she had in stock - once the yarn was gone, it was gone. Personally, I wish I had discovered her shop prior to her closing as I was very impressed with her professionalism and attempts to please everyone she could in a very trying situation.

But I do understand how disappointed you must be :hug: I hope you're the first one in on the next great sale!

GinnyG
08-18-2007, 07:35 AM
I understand that but many of us were not even notified that our order was cancelled, we had to contact her. Also it appears that some orders that were filled were placed after orders that were voided. She should have notified us immediately that she could not fill the order not made us get in touch with her. I don't see professionalism at work at all.

You may consider it sour grapes but I do alot of online shopping and most order programs have an inventory system that automatically updates what is available. Her site showed the malabrigo available for days after it was "sold out". It is my opinion that it was poorly handled.

Indygirl
08-18-2007, 07:53 AM
I ordered 12 Mmmmm, 10 tufotsies. I recieved 4 tufotsies. I didn't get any notice about the order not being full. I do however know that in a close out sale you are always taking your chances. It's not like I don't have enough stash :aww:

Oh GinnyG! I didn't think it was sour grapes :hug: on your part at all!!! and I do understand why a lot of people became frustrated - especially with so many of her e-mails having ended up in spam folders. I was just giving my experience perspective :wink:

I don't know the owner at all...but I just kept imagining a "little old lady" pulling her hair out trying to please everyone and getting completely overwhelmed - guess my "sympathy genes" kicked in :roflhard: Of course, she may be 27, closing shop to move to Hawaii to become a beach bum and sip pina coladas by the water all day for all we know!

Anyway - I'm sorry you didn't make out on this one and I certainly do understand your point ov view!!! Happy knitting!

This was my 1st experience ordering yarn on-line and I was worried. My first order (placed Thursday morning last week) and got confirmation that afternoon.

On Monday I noticed that others had received their orders :nails: so I emailed her and then I found out that my order hadn't been filled and that I wasn't going to get everything I ordered. :think:

I then placed another order and immediately emailed her after I got order confirmation and asked if she had everything and she emailed me right away saying what she didn't have.

I received the first order Wed or Thurs and 2nd Fri. :woot:I was disappointed that I didn't get any mmmmm but am extremely pleased with what I received.:woohoo::woohoo:

I feel that she tried her best in filling eveyones orders and felt like this :hair::gah:trying to keep everyone happy. I wish her the best and feel sorry to see a LYS close.
