Got to love those gift certificates!

I just got back from my local yarn store. I was armed with a gift certificate from my boss and made a great haul. This pile will make a pair of socks, three hats, two pair of fingerless gloves.

Here's what I bought:

  • Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK - 2 skeins. Pale Pink. These will be made into fingerless gloves (seems I am in a rut -- if you can call that -- with fingerless gloves.
  • Plymouth Diversity sock yarns. Yellow Orange white. Further in the skein the colors change to pink and purple. -- Obviously, socks.
  • Berroco Remix -  Tan.  I have some hat patterns I want to try. One of these patterns will get this skein.
  • Mirasol - Nuna in Navy. 3 Skeins. I loved the color and sheen of this yarn. Probably will end up a hat and gloves, maybe a scarf.

Now I just wish I had enough to do these plus the 2000+- projects in my stash in the yarn room. If I live long enough to use it all up, I will be over 175 years old!

Stay tuned. Back to the needles.
