Those who can't knit

buy yarn.........

Some lovely grey Jaeger Trinity. Will hopefully be a lovely sweater someday. Perfect Project Spectrum colors.

Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4 ply. I've been wanting this for some time, and when we stopped by the store with the giant sale, hubbo picked it all up for me (this was day 15 million of the bad day cycle). No plans for it - just loved the color and the slight tweed. More Project Spectrum colors. Perhaps if I can't complete a project in the monthly colorways I can buy yarn in each color? Whaddya think?

Yarn for my Fiesta socks - I'm taking my first knitting class for these socks and I have homework to do! Love the combination - Louet fine/sport weight and Claudia's Handpainted.

I ordered some great Kona Bay Wool from Pure Knits - what a deal! All of this was $20.00! It's going to grow up to be the Cable Down Raglan from the new Interweave. I love the color and it's very soft - great buy!

I won a prize! I was the lucky winner in the Sock-a-Month 2 January drawing! Chrissy sent this pretty Opal sock yarn - I love the Opal, and the colors are great.

Whew! That's it - I think that's plenty. I'm certainly going to be way off on my in/out totals this month. Oh well. It's only yarn. There is knitting content too - I can hardly believe it myself!


  1. Oooh, it's all so pretty!! I love to live vicariously through your yarn purchases! :)

    I love your idea of buying yarn in the PS colors!

    I hope that things are getting better there and you had a nice weekend. You are due some rest and peace after that last week (ugh).

  6. duuuude...that's a LOT of yarn. dayum!
    thanks for your comment on the red thing!
    we don't get much chance to wear scarves in hawaii...well, those completely of the wool variety, anyway.
    the red thing is actually a thank-you gift for my friend. i have to mail it out soon. you know, before it gets too warm to wear it. :)

  7. Good stash enhancement!
