Yarn Haul!

one of our LYS was having their 3rd annual birthday sale. i wasn't sure that i'd be able to make it because we were fishing with my FIL. however, we made it back and showered by noon and DH and I were out the door and on the road. and what should come of it, you ask???? this wonderfully cute bag-o-goodies!!
the goods!

but what's INSIDE the super cute bag is what you really want to know, right?!! well, here ya go:

Funny enough I was looking at the Malabrigo, but like you commented on my blog...I didn't have a pattern in mind of it. Malabrigo is sooo lovely and soft!!! Have fun with your new stash.
