yarn love

I stopped by St. Vincent de Paul today with ervy. OMG I was so glad I did!
There were some amazing yarns there today! I paid $35.50 for 40 skeins. Oh but it's lovely!


I found 8 skeins of 100% virgin wool fingering weight in a variegated burgandy

10 skeins of a light pretty acrylic yarn with silver sparkly veins running through it

10 skeins of Classic Elite Star yarn, 99% Cotton 1% Lycra in yellow/green, lime green, and blue (worth $5 bucks a piece online) (also shown is a bag of 100% wool in worsted weight, color blue, 2 balls. In the back are 3 skeins of acrylic worsted weight in cardinal red)

1 ball of khaki Cable yarn 50% cotton 50% modal

2 skeins of Plymouth Galway 100% virgin wool in Navy (priced normally at $6 each online)

AH, but the grand yarn prize of the day is definitely the 3 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns - Wings (55% alpaca, 23% silk, 22% wool- worth $10 a skein) and the 2 skeins of unmarked grey yarn (also feels like a soft wool blend probably also worth $10 each)

I also took some pics of the koolaid dyed wool yarn i did yesterday in strawberry, orange, and tropical punch (i've only wound the orange into a ball so far)

sigh. I love yarn
