Details about that big ol' box of fiber goodness I got last week...
This was the precipice of the yarn order. I needed to buy more Colorwaves yarn for Sean's blanket and Smiley's has the best price for it ($1.99 a skein). But - I had to order a minimum of $50. Here's what made up the rest of my order:
Four skeins each of Cervinia Sorrento in Denim Heather, Charcoal Heather, Beige Heather and Brown Heather. This is 100% acrylic yarn though it looks and feels really nice. I'm planning to make a charity blanket with it.
One skein each of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Blueberry and Blue Haze. The names would have you assume the yarn is from the blue family. I beg to differ as I find this yarn to be more of the obnoxious teal family or drab gray family. Oh well. It will be used for dishcloths (that is, if I ever get my first dishcloth made).
One skein of Wendy Peter Pan Baby Yarn in Baby Blue. This will hopefully turn into a hat and booties for KMP's bundle of joy due in December. I best get a move on this project because I am no speedy knitter.
Lion Brand Jamie Classic in Lemonade (4 skeins), Pistachio (3 skeins), and Lilac (3 skeins). I bought this to make another charity blanket of daisy squares. The pistachio is not as green as I would have liked, but it will work for the background of the squares.
Susan Bates 29" circular knitting needles in sizes 7, 8, 9, and 10. I've got a bunch of circulars in smaller sizes for socks so I thought I might as well make the set closer to complete with circulars in the larger sizes.
Where am I going to store all this new yarn? It won't be pretty, but I'll try my best to cram it all into my little yarn cabinet.
