Stash Acquisition Saturday

I know, I know...I've said it several times.....but when there is a good deal, I need to POUNCE!

So I found out that a LYS is closing.  It is about an hour from me, but has some delicious yarns....so I had to take a pop up there to see what was left.....

I had a couple things I was looking for...since working with the Sweet Georgia Cashluxe and IN LOVE with it, I was hoping she might have some...and she did...

The top is charcoal and the bottom autumn flame....they may be worked up together...

My cousin has asked me to make her daughter and her skull caps...so I needed some pink and grey, hopefully in cotton.  They live in Texas....

I just fell in love with these colors...
These are going to be some kind of fingerless mitts....

And some Zen Yarn Garden in Appletini and French Vanilla...again the colors...probably a cowl....

Another cousin just had a baby boy after many years of trying and she asked for a blanket...They live in Florida, so was looking for something cool and won't be too heavy.  Plus it's superwash.

I went to Knit Night at my local yarn shop...I don't go every week and she had this kit on sale for more than 50% off!  She only had these colors left, but it'll look great with blue jeans...
And then I received my yarn clubs from Mad Color....
From "A Galaxy Far, Far Away" is Boba Fett? BOBA FETT?!?  The Hubs says it looks Christmas-y, which I guess it does...

And from BAMF is Hermione...
So pretty!

It's funny, I see so many people doing Stash Downs and things like that...I am Stash Upping....the Hubs calls it my "retirement fund"  As when I retire, I may not have the disposable income and I'll have a large stash to use....(although retirement isn't for another 15 or so years)

So, do you want to play along?  Please link back...thanks!

I'm doing both destashing and buying all the things. Mine is going to be a space issue. My yarn closet is only so big and only so much can fit...soooooooooo, I need to destash. Oh well.
