Maniacal Yarn Acquisition: The Latest Installment

So, would you like to see what I got at Webs?

Clockwise, starting at the top left:

Two skeins of Filatura Di Crosa Multicolor in yummy reds, pinks and oranges. I, a couple of years ago, made a yummy scarf out of this yarn in shades of blues and greens.

Dream in Color Smooshy in Lipstick Lava.

Kangaroo Dyer in Macaw.

Opal Hundertwasser in yellows and blues.

Two skeins of Prism Merino Mia in Freesia. (Or, as the label says, Freeisa...I think it's a typo.)

Two skeins of Regia Mosiak Color in pretty spring-like colors.

I also got some buttons.

Some of these were on sale....the dichroic glass ones and the red poppy, to be exact. The red poppy came in a sale bag with a bunch of other buttons that are nice but not necessarily photo-worthy.

I love these poppies.

Nice, huh?

Then, in the little yarn shop in Amherst, I pity-bought this:

Finally, I came home to find a box from The Loopy Ewe with the following:

From top to bottom:

Fannie's Fingering in Wildflowers II.

Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 in Parrot.

Perchance to Knit's merino in Breezy.


I think I'd better keep knitting socks.

I'm suffering from some serious yarn envy here.

I missed Webs last time I was back east - this summer for sure!

Stardust - I just tried leaving the following comment on your blog post about Hedgehog Fibers:

"Oh my! Those yarns at Hedgehog Fibers are gorgeous! I've fallen in love with Mirror...fortunately I can't, at the moment, think of anything to use 155 meters of silk yarn in. But you can bet I've favorited the shop!"

But it wouldn't load a word verification and let me post it. But I've subscribed to your blog!

Li, Webs is not to be missed. I wasn't brave (or foolish) enough to go in the warehouse, though I did ogle it from the door. It's a fantastic shop!
