On Sunday morning, I headed off to a family mini-vacation in the U.P. (approximately 27 hours of fun), stopping first in Charlevoix to get my midsummer fiber fix. And I hit it hard.
50/30/20 alpaca/Merino/tussah silk (Yarn Hollow), 50/25/25 Merino/bamboo/silk (Winterhaven).
50/50 Merino/Tencel (Winterhaven), 50/30/20 alpaca/Merino/tussah silk (Yarn Hollow).
50/30/20 alpaca/Merino/tussah (Yarn Hollow), 100% Bluefaced Leicester (Yarn Hollow).
100% BFL, both from Yarn Hollow....wow, am I that predictable?
And, wouldn't you know it, when I got home on Monday night, I had a little package waiting for me there, too. Whoops.
100% superwash BFL (L) and 100% superwash Merino (R) from Fat Cat Knits. LOVE!
And this one, which has already gone through the orifice once and is ready to ply:
I can typically curb this sort of manic cash-flashing, but I actually have an acceptable excuse for this particular stash enhancement. I'm preparing for (and only just announcing it for the first time at this very moment!) a trunk show of my very own.
Throughout Thanksgiving weekend 2010 (Friday-Sunday, November 26-28th), I'll be showcasing my handspun yarn, handpainted spinning fibers and samples knit from my own line of patterns, designed specifically for beautiful, unique skeins of handspun yarn. The trunk show will be here at the shop, with an artist's reception on Friday night from 6-9 (can you say 'chocolate and sparkling wine'?) I'll be introducing a few surprises as well--it's going to be a crazy awesome weekend.
So, long story short, this stash that I've most recently acquired is not stash at all, but soon-to-be yarn.
It all makes perfect sense to me.
(While writing this and waiting for my blog photos to load, I may or may not have bought this. I'm terrible.)
