Yarn!!!

I already have a stash that is, shall we say, a bit out of hand.  This problem is not helped when I go down once a month for PJ Jam at the LambShoppe in Denver.   

Playing for hours in the shop with my stitching pals surrounded by glorious yarn enticingly displayed.  Let’s just say….Resistance is Futile.   

My treasure pile of Yarn

Somehow these 6 had to come home with me.   

Berroco won the most attention.  2 hanks of the luxurious Ultra Aplaca, a wonderfully affordable Aplaca/wool blend.  Also the gorgeous glowing blue hank is Berroco’s Lustra, a wool/tencel blend that has a beautiful sheen.   

Still in an Alpaca mood I found a beautiful hank of Misti Alpaca Chunky in a light lavender color.  This is 100% baby alpaca and so soft that I just want to use it for a pillow.  

Next I was attracted to the display of sparkly mohair blends (remember we discussed this novelty yarn addiction of mine in a recent post).  So Trendsetter’s Dune was added to the pile.  

Now a bit of green was needed to balance the purple alpacas and the sparklies.  So I added the ball of Frog Tree sport weight 100% Alpaca.   

4 Hanks with a Destiny

Amazingly enough there are valid reasons they all needed to be added to my stash (well, maybe not the Lustra).  Currently the destiny of the 4 hanks above is a secret, but I hope to give you some clues soon.
