Knit Picks had a Cyber Monday sale. I broke my yarn diet rules and bought more. I’m justifying it because there are some things I wanted that were discontinued and/or on sale. Four skeins of lace-weight, and eleven(!) skeins of sock yarn, and two circular needles.
I bought another 2 skeins of Imagination in Wild West (see this post for pictures–the dyelots look pretty close). I also bought two skeins of the discontinued Munchkin colorway:
Based on the Knit Picks photo, I was not expecting these eye-searing colors. Ouch. I’m not sure whether dyeing over them with dilute grape Kool-Aid is the answer: It’ll tone down that red and green, but I’m a little concerned about creating some strange muddy color because of all that yellow. Clown barf it shall remain, then.
I bought yet another skein of Stroll Handpainted in Tiger (also discontinued). I have Skew in mind for one, and a second pair of Aquaphobia for the other. This new one seems to have a lot more brown in it than the first.
I could not get a good picture, for some reason. I bought some Felici (their self-striping yarn) in two different colors, Rainbow and Chochineal. Guess which is which.
On the less-crazy side, I bought 2 skeins of plain Stroll Sport. Color: Jackrabbit Heather.
These will become socks for my dad. I think this was the only yarn I bought that wasn’t on sale.
Two skeins of Shadow (100% merino) in Foxtrot Heather, and two skeins of Shimmer (70% baby alpaca, 30% silk) in Sherry. I have no idea what the Shadow wants to be just yet, but I think the Shimmer is becoming a scarf-sized Clapotis.
The Shimmer, with the alpaca content, is going to work up into a nice, lightweight, warm scarf. I can’t wait!
