My first MALABRIGO!
Okay, I've given in to the temptation after I've heard everyone here gushing over the malabrigo and how gorgeous it is. I also saw a scarf that a friend knitted with it and fell in love. Here's the yarn I bought to make my mother-in-law's birthday (or Christmas--depending on when I finish) present!!

I broke down too and got my first malabrigo! But, I'm still in the petting stage---I take it out everyday pet, squeeze and sigh-- put it back until I decide what to make. You know I can only admit this here!!!

I was telling my daughter that I have yarn that I don't want to knit because it's so nice. She said I was crazy. I know all you guys understand.

I'm knitting with my first Mmmmalabrigo, too, and it's wonderful to use as well as pet.

The color is called Cuarzo. I think it means "quartz" in Spanish (or at least that's what google told me). :D I spent about a half an hour at my LYS trying to choose which color to get!
