I'm just going to show you everything. I'm coming clean little by little.
This is what I got at Knitting Up a Storm by the way ( along w/ the Noro of course)....the stash has been greatly enhanced.

What? You can't tell how many skeins of Debbie Bliss I actually bought? Good. I like it that way. DON'T JUDGE ME!! :-) It was all on sale so I couldn't resist; for instance you see the $5.95 tag on the tweed? already a good price right? take not 20, 30, but 40% off- ...BTW, if you're ever in South Carolina I highly suggest stopping into Knitting Up a storm. The folks are extra friendly there and they have a great selection, fair pricing, good customer service, and a nice neat shop. My little sales lady even threw in these lovely samples after I asked a few questions about the products.
I like the idea of showing a representive skein. You know, the one skein that sits out to show people what the one million other skeins you bought the same day looks like. Somehow, I feel less guilty that way. Notice that none of these are the yarns I listed a couple of weeks ago on the shopping list:-( This is a sad fact yet lord knows I can't wait to shop for more.
Anyways, if seeing stash or seeing yarn makes you happy I'm thinking I am going to go on a stash flashing spree for a bit. Besides, there seems to be a few folks out there that can't be convinced that I am not totally a ghetto knitter. I believe some people even mentioned that maybe i should be the queen of my own "ghetto knitters" blog ring. I mean a gal might want to save a couple pennies sometime but sheesh, do I have to be "queen ghetto knit blogring hostess?"
Well. I guess we'll see about that.

In case you haven't used cashmerino aran before, let me tell you, you will love it! It's so soft... Ok, so really. How many more balls of it are lurking behind that photo? Be honest!

Ninabeena said...

ok fine.
12 skeins of the cashmerino total
Hey! Judge not lest you be judged! :-)

12 skeins......I think you must have gotten the last of it....Don't you just love it! What are you going to do w/ the
Louia Harding yarn?

Ninabeena said...

There was still a quite a bit there when I was done! I was going to make a scarf with the Harding. I was going to use two skeins to make one of those diagonal lace scarfs you gave me the pattern for.

What an awesome find! Cashmerino is so fun to work with and the sheen and drape is really gorgeous.

Ninabeena said...

I can only imagine. It was already heaven just knitting up a swatch! :-)

I'm so glad to know there's an LYS in Myrtle Beach since I'm going there this weekend.

Wow - what a fantastic stash! The Louisa Harding yarn looks just divine - I can't wait to see how it knits up. Do you have any plans for what you would like to make from your haul?

Ninabeena said...

Vera, you will love it there. It is a cute little store and very orderly. The prices are FAIR and the service is perfect. I hope you enjoy your vacation there as much as I did. Who knows maybe they'll have more yarn on sale.
Kate, the colors and weight of the Louisa was perfect for a really easy lace diagonal scarf pattern that my sister gave to me some time ago. I want to knit it for a good friend of mine. I actually have two balls of it so I will be beginning my knitting on that soon. I would like to get done with my Danica scarf first...so many christmas gifts to knit- so little time.
