it looks like i may have spoken too soon. the boyfriend returned from turkey with more than a few balls of yarn in his suitcase. look at how gorgeous this stuff is!

From Knitting, etc.

he brought 45 balls of a cashmere and bamboo blend in lots of great colors – really saturated plums and greens; pretty pale pinks and blues; and creamy pastels perfect for someone’s niece to be. my yarn stash was already bursting at the seams, so it looks like i need to get the needles moving asap.

he ended up adding a few more skeins to my collection this past weekend on a visit to charlottesville. while on the downtown mall, we went to the needle lady, an adorable LYS where i snagged 4 skeins of debbie bliss baby cashmerino for a tiny striped hat and sweater for a tiny little one on the way. these are my first official baby knits, so i’m excited to have at it – and this kid will surely be spoiled with lots of handmade gifts.

and i have a feeling that even more yarn purchases will be made this weekend in nyc. finished work is on the way.
