Stash Enhancement!

I HAVE to boast about it on here, because there's no doubt I'll have to hide it from DH!. This is the lot in all its glory:

Isn't that just gorgeous! There should also be some Jitterbug in there - but its for my secretpal and its therefore a secret - shhhh!
Separately we have this, from Fyberspates. The last parcel in the sock club :-(

And very good value it has been. I added the eggs just because.






And this next is for the Karen's fairisle gloves knitalong that I've just joined - Just need the pattern now!













And finally we have this - a find from my lovely LYS. I've been debating and gnashing my teeth about what to knit the person who will get my scarf in the ISE4 - I've been swamped by the choice. Then I walked into Spin-a-Yarn and saw it: the lightest, softest, fan and feather scarf in this beautiful hand painted 2ply 100%merino yarn from New Zealand. (There isn't any white in it - that was just the camera). AND there should be enough for TWO scarves - ho ho. The person I'm knitting for likes wild colours...

Love that Fyberspates. I'm desperately trying to avoid buying some of her silk at the moment. Foolish, isn't it?

Tutmut - that's a haul and a half!!! Delicious. I have the Fyberspates stuff to and have to agree, its been great value for money and lovely yarn. And the scarf is going to look gorgeous!

Nice new stash additions! And I'd like to say... you live in a beautiful area. Good luck with your knitalong! Need or want anything special for any current or future projects??? Oh yeah, and you should be receiving a package near the first of April. ;)

Some stunning yarns. And i envy you being so close to Spin A Yarn. I try to get up there once in a while. It's just such a lovely shop. And well worth the hour long drive to get there.

Yes - can't just fondle and gaze at the yarn in admiration - I have to knit, knit, knit! I'm glad you all agree!

anni - would be lovely to meet up some time, when you come up this way - we're so lucky to have Joyce (she' overspending her budget on some gorgeous yarns!) - but there are lovely tea shoppes around here too -I'll treat you and we can knit over the scones.

midsummerknight's knitter - give in, India. You know you want to.

And Secret Pal - lovely to hear from you again! I DO live in a lovely area and I hope I never take it for granted.
A parcel on April Fools Day?! I'll look forward to that!

Oh gorgeous yarn!! Isn't there something wonderfully indulgent and liberating about buying yarn even if you don't really need it?! Just love it.
