Stash Flashing

Just a little stash flashing....one of these days, when I get all the yarn into its little cubbies, I'll do the total flash, but these are the most recent additions.

First, a lovely batch of Elann yarns, courtesy of my friend Jill (sending an "I'm not woooorthy" bow in her direction!). There's enough of the gorgeous lavender Highland Silk to make a sweater for moi - and that sweater is going to be Ivy from the most recent issue of Knitty. It's a gorgeous wrap sweater. The other balls are more luscious Elann stuff like Highland Silk, Baby Cashmere....sigh... There are two balls of a soft blue missing that are earmarked for wrist warmers for my mom. Are you drooling yet? I am!




This next batch is the result of an outing this week, when I had the chance to duck into a nearby wool shop. I did a little sale-bin diving, and came out with some irresistable bargains...the coffee wool is enough Sirdar Country Style for a vest or possibly a simple sweater for me; the celery green yarn has an interesting shine and I am thinking lacey something; the creamsicle-colored Jeans yarn is nicer in person. Really. That may become socks for me and a cardigan for Lilybean. I'll have to play with it, as I am not sure it would work for socks.

Exciting times around here, eh?
