Stash Enhancement

My LYS, Knit Happens, had a H-U-G-E sale this weekend. The wonderful boyfriend took me there today at 10:30am and there were many, many knitters there and the yarn was dwindling. Still, I came away with some lovely purchases:

GGH Solitaire (11) intended for the Titled Duster from Interweave Knits
Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK (11 in green, 11 in white) intended for the Somewhat Cowl and Wheat Ear Cable Yoke Sweater
Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere (9) intended for the Summertime Tunic
Jaeger Aqua (7) for perhaps Cherry, but who knows
King Tut Cotton (5) with no intentions

All of this would normally have cost me about $530 before taxes. But thanks to it being 70% off, I only spent $160.

Life is good.

Wow! You got such a good deal on all that yarn. You didn't buy anything for socks?

Sadly, there wasn't much sock yarn on sale. Just Koigu and I didn't like the available colors. Otherwise, you KNOW I would've had a much higher total. Haha.

I'm glad that you got to break your yarn diet with a bang!
