Caution: Yarn Porn Ahead

I know I should be ashamed, but I just placed a big order for new yarn.

My justifications (as if any are needed):

  • Stylecraft has new colors. I must have them. 
  • I'm down to 2 bins of yarn, and starting to run out of a few colors.
  • I like yarn.
  • Free shipping with an order of $50 or more.
  • It's cheaper than drinking.
  • Okay, I like wine, too. Maybe I was drinking when I placed the order.... my shopping cart sure was full! 
Here's a little preview:  Gold, Petrol, Stone, Spice - I think they are great additions!  I'm looking forward to putting them next to all my other Stylecraft, and seeing what new combinations I can make.

   



I also ordered Merry-Go Round in rainbow.....  Yes - I have a plan for this.


And now, for something completely different...... I'm trying Louisa Harding Amitola, in Tango.  I have a special project in mind for this fingering weight yarn. Pretty gorgeous, isn't it? 


Is anyone else this excited about new yarn?  Seriously! I can't wait for the packages to arrive.
