Stash Saturday

So if you've been around here much, you know I have a yarn addiction.....yeah well...

So I went away for 5 days....and in those 5 days, I stopped at 4 LYS in Canada....I was looking exclusively for Canadian yarn...stuff that I may have heard of, but not gotten, or had gotten..but now didn't need to pay the insane shipping prices to Canada.....I will blog about each stop individually...but here is the yarn...

Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label in tartan....heard about this yarn...had never worked with it

SweetGeorgia Yarns in DK..I do have a skein of something else in my stash..these are Oxblood and Summer Dusk.

Biscotte and Cie....the watermelon stripe, without the seeds (bummer)

ShantiKnits in Lettuce Knit

Julie Asselin Milis...in a limited edition color....

IndigoDragonfly...I do have a couple of her skeins, but they are hard to get...this is a Firefly inspired one..and the next is a Hunger Games inspired one...
And finally...Mrs. Crosby Loves to Play..this has been popping up recently..not sure if she's new...okay just looked her up...and she is based in Chicago.....
but the story of how I ended up with these two yarns is good....will tell during LYS post...

So then, of course, I came home to my yarn clubs....
Dizzy Color Sunnydale: Patrol 2...Happy Birthday Buffy...

MadColor Mad Posse: Titania's Bower

Nerd Girls in Smashing...The Shark Swallow You Whole..cuz you know Shark Week!

And also my yarn for the Outlander MKAL arrived...Lorna's Laces Sport Multi

Beauchamps
and Fraser
and I just received the first clue....so I am going to go and cast on....see you all tomorrow for Year of Projects....

I do love that yarn :) I'm trying so hard to work from stash until Stitches West in February. I'm doing okay...ish...I've fallen off the wagon a couple of times but it's okay. Nothing major :)

What a great collection. I think I like the Mad Color the best.

If you'd like the seeded version of the watermelon yarn, I'd be happy to trade with you. Just let me know.
