The Stash Enhancement

You’ll have to forgive the pictures, as it is crappy raining here and will be all week…so figured I’d just take some crappy ones, until I can get better ones…

The Webs haul:

DSC04073 Each bag was a grab bag of a certain brand for $20.  I got 3…Berrocco, Plymouth Yarn Boku and Plymouth Yarn Encore…Encore is my go-to yarn now….

DSC04074This is what it looks like out of the bags….The Hubs said he really likes the Boku and I quote: “It looks like that Japanese yarn.”  I about fell over….then 10 minutes later, he says, “Noro, right?  That’s it’s name?”  He is a keeper!!!  The other day he asked why I had my project bag…again my mouth fell open…he really does listen!!!!!

The LYS haul:


The Sheep and Wool Festival haul:

DSC04076 The Sheep and Wool, I specifically wanted to get the skein on the left.  It is London Fog by Mocha’s Fibers.  She only had lace left at the CT Sheep and Wool and I wanted sock weight….Then I got a discontinued color from Dirty Water DyeWorks…the purple in the middle…and the last is Black Cherry from mad Color (formerly Sereknity)  I saw this from someone else and had to have it…

The total haul: 70 skeins….There were 10 skeins in each of the grab bags and 10 skeins in the bags of Mirasol and Cascade Dolce that I got…..

So who won???? Taleah!!!!  She guessed 50, but random generator picked her number.  I counted out everyone’s guesses (even if they were all in the same post) and there were a total of 27….Random generator picked 13….

So congratulations!!!!! We’ll talk, as you have a choice….

Oh my goodness. That is nowhere near the nine that I guessed. Well done you. What a great yarn haul.

Wow! That's an amazing haul. Clearly you had a great time. Do you have plans for any of it?
