Last week I fulfilled a dream that seemed almost impossible - I visited the Malabrigo Yarn factory in Montevideo, Uruguay.
I interviewed Malabrigo owner Antonio for almost four hours and recorded everything, as he told me details, secret histories, and funny stories behind the yarns, the names, the colors, and the sheep.
The catch - I've submitted the interview to Interweave as an article for possible publication, so I can't post pictures or pieces of it here - but I've got something better for you - a video tour inside. Come share in my dream come true!
Salivating for some Malabrigo? Here are three projects you can make with their fabulous yarn, and links to buy the yarn from my favorite yarn store, Stix.
Test-Knitter Update Thanks everyone who commented on the last blog post - I loved your enthusiasm for trying the new sock pattern! I'll be sending the test pattern out to the lucky test-knitters next week.
Your opinion: did you like the Malabrigo video tour? Want Interweave to publish the full article? Leave a comment below! I'm going to show Interweave all your comments when I mail in my submission, so let's get them excited!
