Holiday Haul!

I’m usually not terribly tempted by sales, but this year I just had to treat myself to the limited edition Wool of the Andes colors that we had for Cyber Monday! Apparently I wasn’t the only one who had that idea, considering that by the time I placed my order, one color was sold out and two more were just a few skeins away. So, I got what I could!

And it was a lot.wotahaul

I saved opening my package for this week. Not that it would be a surprise, just a nice, woolly treat!

I got about two or three sweaters’ worth if I just use the colors by themselves, though I think I’ll be mixing in with my already enormous Wool of the Andes stash. These soft colors really work well with a lot of the more subtle shades in the line, or can be used as just a hint of color in an otherwise neutral palette. I really love them all!

Did you get a bounty of beautiful yarn this year? Do tell! We’ll all have lots to knit in 2014!

    Great minds think alike. Hubby got me 30 skeins of this 6 in each color but the vintage….which was sold out. I’ve already dug into it.Broke out the moss on christmas day to make Winter Berries scarf and made the winter pillow with the frozen and bluebird and also mist. I did a modified version of the pillow….added stripes in the center. It was my first attempt at stranded knitting. Love these colors!
