YOP Week 44 and Stash Enhancement!!!!

Another fibery weekend!  Although I only went on Saturday...I did almost as much damage as I did at Rhinebeck!
My haul:
Top row: Bitsy Socks in Someone’s Got to Milk the Goats; Enchanted Knoll Farm Superwash Sock in Beledi; Spunky Electric Baby Panda in Just a Tart and I’m Leafing You; A Hundred Ravens Iachos in Polaris and Aesir in Starfleet
Bottom Row: Play At Life Pounce Shawl Maki in Purple Ash; Tucker Woods Tessa’s Twist in Rosemary and Thyme; Kiki in Smoky Mountain Blues, Hydrangea, and Antique Roses
Also got a bar of soap from Long Island Livestock Company and some pins from Bitsy Knits
I knew I was going to get the Spunky Electric yarn, as I’d seen it posted with a pattern on Facebook (which I got)…I got another free pattern from Play at Life to go with the Pounce…

Also this week I received the yarn I won!!!!  2 skeins from Zen Yarn Garden Silk Singles...so gorgeous!!!  Black Plum and Grey Wolf....There is 430 yards of each..any recommendations on a stripey shawl????
Also in the mail..Nerd Girl Yarns Random Fandom....Clever Girl (Jurassic Park)  I love that movie!!! and this yarn!
And I know I have another in the mail from MadColor...and I'm still waiting on a swap package from England...it was sent quite a while ago..so hopefully it did not get lost....

Now onto the projects!

I think this is the first time I have used yarn from a festival right after I bought it....This yarn was bought at Rhinebeck from Tess Designer Yarn and it was perfect for one of the Nerd Wars challenges!  I linked it to the Aurora Borealis

The only other thing I have worked on is my Creekbed...I am ready to change to the second color...

I will be in workshops for three days this week...I'll bring a project, but not sure if I'll work on it...if the workshops are "interactive" then no I will not get to work on it..

Next week is Stitches East and I always help a friend out in her booth...so that should be fun..Although there are several vendors not returning...

Your stash enhancements are so similar to mine (in amount) that I don't feel so bad about how much I bought on Friday.

Christine said...

Mmmm...."stash enhancement" appears to be a great phrase.... Must remember that one.
Nice stash!

Lots of gorgeous yarn! I did Cladonia - as a two colour shawl suggestion - and really liked it!

Keri said...

That bottom skein is stunning!!!!! I can't wait to see what you have in store for it!

Lily Razz said...

Oooohhhh I'm so jealous of your stash enhancement! Black Plum and Grey Wolf look so squish! And the colors of the Clever Girl also look amazing! I'm so curious what projects you'll make!

aknitwithacake said...

Ylva said...
