I also gifted a skein of Wollmiese from my stash in a swap package that went out this past week…

As far as incoming stash goes….

I received my Random Fandom skein from Nerd Girl Yarns….This one is inspired by Skeletor and I am in LOVE with the colors!!

And I received these 2 sets of minis from the Downton Abbey swap…I’m counting these as 1 skeins as they add up to the equivalent of a skein of this yarn base…They will likely be used in a single project as well….

I also finished a test knit shawl (the pattern has not yet been released) using 2 skein of Malabrigo Finito.  I am completely infatuated with this yarn and really want to knit a sweater using this lovely yarn… I still need to block the shawl, but it is off the needles

Yarn Report – February 28th

Another mega stash enhancement week….sigh….One day I will be able to pass up a sale and refrain from ordering sweater quantities of yarn….This is not the day though… Knit Picks thinks it’s funny to send these crazy little emails every week to let me know that they are having a sale….and of course I couldn’t pass the Brava sale up… I now have 14 skeins of Brava Bulky in Solstice Heather that is earmarked for Lemongrass.  Since the yarn is bulky weight it should knit up pretty quickly IMG_0480 I also ordered 5 skeins of Dishie cotton yarn which will become dish cloths for a swap gift IMG_0486 Then The Loopy Ewe announced the next challenge.  Knit a project using at least 250 yards of variegated yarn.  I chose Dream in Color Smooshy with cashmere in the Celebrating the Games colorway.  I plan to knit Vittorio IMG_0477 The last skein is a special edition colorway from Fresh From the Cauldron.  It’s part of Jen’s Sons of Anarchy series and is called Happy.  I cannot wait to knit this one up!! IMG_0458 I also managed to finish a couple of projects….YAY!! My Clapotis used up 2 skeins of FFtC Schoodic in the Hades colorway
