Yarn, yay!

A package arrived today… from Webs!

Yarn box

They were having a sale, you know. (When are they NOT having a sale?)

This sale, however, had a couple things that were exactly what I wanted needed.

Yarn pace
Pace sock yarn from Universal Yarn Co. in solid colors. I have been accumulating solid color sock yarn for several years in anticipation of a sweater that exists only in my head. Frankly, I think I finally have enough yarn in enough different colors for it to work. Now to actually knit the thing…

Cascade 220 for $4.99/skein. I am running out of felt-able worsted weight yarn, so this was an excellent opportunity to restock. Those felted potholders are eating up a remarkable number of oddball skeins of KnitPicks Wool of the Andes — time for some more worsted, Cascade this time because it is legendarily better.

I substituted some Ella Rae and Plymouth Galway worsted for a couple of the Cascade colors I had originally picked.

Yay, new yarn!

  1. Hee, hee, my WEBS box arrives tomorrow. I celebrated the end of a semester (and my first year back at school) by getting the pattern and yarn for the high line cardi. Can’t wait!
    I missed the sale on 220, rats, but that’s actually a good thing, especially for my closet and wallet!

  2. I am waiting for some lovely angora from Webs myself. I resisted for the entire month of April, but evidently the beginning of a new month was too much for my willpower.

    Ooh what a big smooshy box I just want to stick my arms in there and rummage around!!!

    Mmmmmmm, new yarn. I’ve not heard of that sock yarn. Have you used it before? Is it good? Wait, why am I asking? I so do not need new yarn. Oy! Temptress!

    I will not click over to Webs. I will not click over to Webs. I will not… /click

    I have been strong in not clicking thru from the Webs sale email. Perhaps I shouldn’t have looked at these pictures either. I am trying to purge a bunch of stuff in my house and haven’t even got to the yarn stash yet.

    Wooohoo yarn!
    I was cleaning/reorganizing/diving in my stash when the Webs email arrived, which kind of dampened my enthusiasm for new yarn. Maybe I should just package some of it up and then mail it to myself so that I can get a package of squishy yarn in the mail. 😉

    It’s been sooooo long since I got a package of wool in the mail. I think, to make me feel better I should stop by Double Ewe and buy some.

    I got a Webs box last week! 🙂 Nothing like mail-order wool, I always say! (How can you resist Cascade 220 for $4.99/skein? Or Noro Silk Garden for $4.99/skein? I couldn’t. . .)

    hee hee – I once ordered 1 of every color of Cascade 220 that they had. Loved it. (er … still do. But now I also appreciate a good color card.)

  11. Helen says:

    It took a LOT of will power to ignore that sale.
    Especially the Cascade 220 part….
    but I did… I resisted.
    so far…
    (please tell me it’s over soon)
