Stash Saturday

On Wednesday when I was leaving for Stitch night down at Madison Wool, in my mailbox was the latest Mad Color Mad Geek Tour.  I present Malcolm Reynold's Widow...I am IN LOVE with this color!!!!!  This is a "Firefly" inspired yarn....


Then, of course, being at a yarn shop that night, I picked up some goodies...

This one was on sale and will make a cute hat...
It's Oceanwind Knits in Thyme

And this GORGEOUS skein from Manos Del Uruguay.  It's Alegria..so soft, so pretty...
Then I read on Facebook about a hat design contest for some new yarn..plus they would give you the yarn to work with!  So I put in a request and received these two skeins on Friday...
They are Boston by Schachenmayr...I think I'm going to use the solid as the  main color and the twist one for decoration/edging...

I may be visiting an LYS in Rhode Island today...I am off to visit a blogging friend, who is at a seminar in Rhode Island....yeah!

You'll have to give me more info on the hat contest. Sounds fun!

Do you have any idea how hard it is to not visit every yarn web site you talk about and just order all the pretty colours you show. I have no idea what I would make if I did order the yarn but it sure is pretty to look at. :)
