With a little help from my friends

My yarn stash grows!

It was a short lived victory indeed. I received all my swap yarn today, it was almost (almost!) overwhelming to get it all at once. I wonder what my mailman thought. I’ll just show you all the goodies I got:

First, I lied, I didn’t get this package today. I actually got it last week from Diana. Isn’t it pretty? It’s tweedy silk and I think I know what I’m going to make with it, but Ill never tell (well till I actually get to it!). Lucky for me she was destashing and knew of my fondness for all things red. I’ll definately hit you back.

This package I did get today from Illanna. It’s the second issue of R2 along with some yarn she hand dyed for me and a skein of Kureyon she snuck in there to trick me (I’ll get you back for that!) Is she not the dyeing diva?

And look at this one! Sylvie and I had a little transcontinental swap (I use the word little loosely here), and somehow our respective mailman must’ve rushed it for us. I still can’t believe I got this so fast. Look at all I got too! A bunch of wool, mohair, and alpaca along with the fall issue of Phildar (which I’m drooling over btw) and a cute little button I’m going to use for a little purse I’m knitting.

I swear I have to be one of the luckiest girls, to get home from errands and find these packages at my door!

    Hehe, you lucky girl. The red silky tweed looks beautiful, wondering what you’re going to turn it into..?

    There’s a couple hundred yards in there, I think a very lux hat would be cute.

    ooooh, you did really well with yarn swaps. I am interested in what the red silk turns into..

    I sorta don’t get the obsession with not having a yarn stash. I love being able to walk into my room and pick out a project from the yarn I have around. (Then again, I mostly stash sock yarn and can get a project easily from 1 ball.)

    nah, it’s not an obsesssion with not having a stash, but more of trying to be economical and not having random yarn I’m never going to use or have no projects for. I’ve had some yarn in there for years, sigh
