Now and Then, the little gift shop in Takoma Park where I teach knitting is dramatically expanding their yarn selection. The’ve recently added Malabrigo yarn–an ultra-soft merino hand-dyed in a cooperative in Uruguay. (They also recently got some great laceweight silk/mohair, and they’re awaiting a shipment of Nature’s Palette from Hand Jive.) A big shipment of Malabrigo arrived today of lots of new colors including this amazing brown called Marron Oscuro (on their web site it looks nothing like the actual skein) which I’m using to make a little cardi for a class I’m teaching there in October.

Pay no attention to the adorable Yak Pak in the background–because of course I need another bag like a hole in my head, so maybe a brownie snuck it into my house…

    Yummy yarn and that bag looks super cool! I think I want one of those.

    I like the bag too – where did you get it? I tried looking for Yak Sak but only got wetbags and things to go with Yakima car carrier things. Thanks!

    I just saw some of the Malabrigo this weekend at the yarn store I visited in Indiana, and (kick me!) didn’t get any.

    Good to know it’s in town!! I’ll have to check it out.

    Hi, Amy! Do you have a schedule of classes you teach at Now & Then? I love that shop, but haven’t been there in a while… even though my brother lives right down the street from it.
