MMmm I mmmm know mmmm what you are mmmm talking about mmmm now!
I keep reading all these threads about malabrigo yarn and how yummmmmmy it is. I finally found some today at my LYS. It was in the bottom bin in a corner. I felt it before I knew what it was and mmmm, it was heaven! I pulled it out and went, "Oh so THIS is what all the fuss is over!" I also found some SWTC 100% bamboo that was also quite yummy (again in the bottom bin in an out of the way place.) I can only assume that my LYS owner loves this yarn so much that she doesn't want us shoppers to find it so she can have it all to herself.

Unfortunately, she didn't have a very wide color selection of either, but I'm in the know now! MMmmmmmmMMMMM

Seriously! Me and a couple other KHers from Austin all went to the same LYS today at different times and all bought Malbrigo for the first time today!

The LYS with Malabrigo is Hill Country Weavers. It is wall to wall yarn! And they ball it for you for FREE! It's on South Congress in a little yellow converted house. The people there are super nice! And they have tons of patterns that they just GIVE away!
