It was in the form of a gift certificate, and I had to think about what I wanted!! I’ve bought NO stash (except a couple of skeins of Bernat acrylic for a practice project) since before JANUARY! J.A.N.U.A.R.Y. , people!! I don’t know if it’s a personal record or not, but I really don’t spend a lot on yarn–so every time a “holiday” comes up for me–it’s stash enhancment/addis/books time for me. (Ya know, as completely generous as my 1 son is–WHY DIDN"T I HAVE MORE KIDS??? (well, on Holidays, at least!!) Ooo…I SHOULD be embarassed.lol
I got 3 skeins of lace weight Mistli Alpaca in natural–which I’m thinking of dyeing (actually I DYING to dye it!!lol) it’s about 1300 yds.–and I don’t exactly know what I’m goin to use it for!!; 10 skeins of Catania ( cotton) yarn for a tank top (MODEST, peple, for my dil!!), and Wendy Knits!-her new book --I’ve read her blog for ages.
A bright yellow neck-roll pillow that says " ONE HOT CHICK ", has a little yellow chick with a pink bill on it was a 50c at a yard sale… . and my yard sale buy of the year–a Kate Spade bag–for $5.00 (she came off the $15.00 when tiny little raindrops started raining on the sale!! ) It’s like brand new–don’t why she didn’t like it!
So-- here are the pictures–I’m NOT a photographer like so many of you are (I’m terribly jealous, too, you KNOW who you are!!)
Thanks for your patience, folks, I had to flash!!
