OMG!!! how did this yarn get here????? $137.29

Pig washcloth. Note to solid yarn is a better choice for patterned washcloths. Oh well, this will be able to sop up spilled milk as well as a solid one would .....
Sock yarn? Like you can ever have enough sock yarn from Astrid's. Some Fortissima, Meilenweit MultiEffekt, Regia, and Trekking XXL. I already know that 5 pair of socks will be made for D1 from this purchase of yarn because she told me which yarns were hers. I'll make a couple pair for my sister in law, my daughter's friend, my hubby, and of course some for me too.
Knitpicks gossamer in Sweet Peas and Leprechaun. I think the Sweet Peas will be used for the shawl I'm planning for my ISE4 pal. The Leprechaun will be a shawl for D1's birthday. Every time I knit lace she eyes it so I'll just make her something. Needles, books, magazines, etc don't count toward my yarn purchases because they are tools for my hobby. I just LOVE these options needles. I picked up sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10.5 so now I have a complete set.

Astrid's yarn was completely on sale and we all know that doesn't count against us. ;)

Oh Wow! Very nice additions! I have yet to order from Astrid, but I may have to start... over the summer! Love all the dishcloths you are working on! Last year I found ones with a cute owl and cat face on the net! I love the turtle one you made... is the pattern on the net?

I don't think sock yarn counts as stash enhancement does it...no I don't think so....you are safe. Lovely selection though, and you can add my name to the list of socks to knit. :)

Oh dear, just look at all that lovely new yarn. I can tell someone is going to be having lots of fun in the near future knitting it all up into this pair of socks, or that pretty lacy shawl. I can't wait to see them all.

I got myself a set of the Options needles too, and I am tickled pink with them. I've never used such wonderful needles before. Personally, I like them even better than my Addi's.

Have a wonderful day. :)

Wow!!! That some serious sock stash........ just when I thought I was about socked out, you show me such pretty sock yarns.
Maybe I will have to cast on just one more pair.

I am having some serious knit picks envy over here. It is all so drool worthy and the meanies wont ship here. Maybe they heard my WIP list is already too long ;p

I love the Astrid colors. Dishcloths? I am frantically making some now as mine are worn out. I love the knit pick needles, now if I could just keep them from my DH's puppy's mouth! He now weighs in at 58 lbs and he's only 4 months old!

Nice haul! Astrid's has some good prices on sock yarns!
