Malabrigo Laceweight

In Milwaukee, I have a yarn shop. The ladies there are nice and tolerate my eccentricities. When I was there two weeks ago, I was telling them I wanted to get some laceweight yarn. I looked at what they had out, but nothing was really doing it for me. I sort of new that I wanted *ahem* bubblegum pink variegated yarn. We'll ignore the obvious lapse of taste in color.

Anyway, the ladies busted out the colors they planned on putting out for fall of the Malabrigo Laceweight yarn. And they had exactly what I wanted and only 5 hanks of it. At 470 yards a hank, I decided only to get 3.

Today, I found out that none of my yarn stores in the Twin Cities are stocking this stuff yet. The Yarnery ordered some. Double Ewe probably isn't stocking it, even though they carry the worsted weight Malabrigo. I also checked the websites of a couple of other shops and no one seems to have it yet.

So now the urge to make something in bubblegum pink laceweight before anyone else can even buy it is overwhelming. Project-stoppingly overwhelming.


Edit: I'm 6993 in the ravelry queue. At this rate, I'll have arthritis by the time I have access.

All About Yarn in Coon Rapids has had it for a while. The Yarnery also had some the last time I was there, but I think I went in the day after it came in so it might be sold out.

And what is it with you and pink these days anyways? It's starting to worry me.

They probably have some, but not in the exciting color I have.

The Yarnery already carries Malabrigo laceweight. They got it in early July or late June...

Maybe the Yarnary didn't update their website. It might be good to know if I run into a bubblegum pink lace weight related crisis.
