Yarn Acquisitions

I admit it... I have a problem... I'm addicted to yarn...

And I'm quite happy being addicted. No 12 step program for me thank you very much!

Here are the most recient of my yarn additons:

Some beautiful Noro Silk Garden in beautiful blues and greens. To become a hat.Some beautiful Koigu Painter's Pallet and 2 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas. So become a scarf to go with above hat. Any pattern ideas that would incorporate all 3 colors?

Lace weight merino wool from Knit Picks to make 2 Faroese Peaks Shawls. (Greens and blues for me, pinks and blues for ???)

My burning heart sock yarn. I can't wait to start these!

So how's the red Wool Peddler's Shawl from Folk Shawls coming along you ask? Well here's a scan (hehe I love my new scanner) of my lovely, neat stitches.

Considering that I only just got the yarn on Monday, I think I'm pretty far along. I started with 7 stitches and I have 151 stitches. I've worked through 1 skein of yarn and I'm well into the second. Yay for knitting!

O jealousy for the peddler's shawl. I am still trying to figure out how to start the thing. But I am glad it does work as you so ably proved :) **CV

Wow, what fabulous yarn scores. Are you doing Project Spectrum? Because you are so set for it colorwise. :)

Yes, Chris, here I am stalking you again in comments.
Love the shawl!! Love the yarn!! Would everyone please stop tempting me to new projects and yarn purchases! I am blaming any bankruptcy that might ensue on the blog world!

Hey Kelly,

Thanks so much for the tip to go to Mosiac. It is really close. I found so much yarn there that patterns I use call for. I had been doing alot of shopping on-line. Now, I can save some money on shipping. Thanks!
