Straight From Hell

That was this week. Seriously. It was so bad I forgot yesterday was Friday. Yeah. That bad.

But, I have the kiddos and the hubby to be incredibly thankful for. That helps so much. And of course there's always yarn in the mail. :-)
This is my haul from Julia's Craft. 4 hanks of Salvia and 14 balls of Vinca. I can't wait to see how it knits up. I have 4 other balls of Vinca in my stash somewhere that I've not gotten to just yet. At $3.99 a hank for the Salvia and $2.99 a ball for the Vinca the price couldn't be beat and I've heard really great reviews on it. Go check it out while it's still on sale.
This is some Suri Lace in the Birches colorway by Cherry Tree Hill that makes me absolutely shiver when I stroke it. I ordered it to knit a Birch shawl with. Kinda corny huh? LOL
This is some laceweight wool from Extreme Yarn that I bought on eBay. It was wound way too tight when it arrived so I rewound it today. The balls are now twice the size of the ones in the picture above. I was a little nervous about adding these to the stash. I found a break in the second ball about half way through when I was winding it. That didn't bother me as much as finding about 8 breaks at the end of the ball. They are nice clean breaks though and I found no evidence of moths. I'm guessing that somehow it got swiped with a knife since the breaks were all stacked in a line. I put them in ziplock bags and threw them in the freezer just in case.
Then there is this amazing color changing yarn from Lazy Perry Ranch. I found this on Ravelry and snapped it up. Gorgeous isn't it?

If I go to Ravelry and check out your stash will it even list 50%??? Do you have a whole room full of yarn or do you just scatter it all over the house so it's not so noticeable?? Just curious is all... ;-)

And what the heck is it with these verifications???? ikfdevdf -- geesh!
