First off, from Webs:
Some Araucania Sock yarn...I'm not sure why I got the beige-y one...it's not thrilling but it'll make some nice subdued socks. (Edited to add: If you go to Webs and check out the Araucania Ranco Multy color 803, you'll see why I ordered it. It looks much richer there, with darker browns and charcoaly bits and bright red. Oh well, that's hand-dye for you, she says philosophically.)
Some Cash Island for a scarf.
Royal Silk Merino...love that red.
And some gorgeous purple Soy Silk. I have a friend who cannot tolerate wool in any form. I made her a scarf last year but I wasn't thrilled with the color. She likes jewel tones...and this purple is certainly that. So she may get another scarf from my needles.
Then, at The Black Sheep's sale, I got:
Some Noro sock yarn. I know...it's rough...it's incredibly fine...some people have a lot of trouble with knots and unevenness. But I kept going back and checking out the shop's sample socks and they were just so darn pretty. Good sturdy socks.
I also got this Lumpy Bumpy yarn in a colorway that I think will look coordinated enough with the Noro ribbed scarf I made not long ago that I can make a hat. Heavens knows I don't seem to be able to keep the scarf off my neck...I'd like a hat to go with it.
And finally, for very little money...
Look at these. I have no idea what I'll do with them. But the yarn is incredibly soft. And it glitters. I love it. (Edited to add: Somehow I am seeing a big, sparkly red and cream scarf...hmmm.)
Guess I'd better knit faster.
