Yarny Goodness

MMMMMMMMMMM, there's nothing like getting 2 delish packages in the mail. I'm not talking boxes of chocolates or cookies or even brownies (however, if anyone feels like sending any of the aforementioned to me I would not drive the UPS delivery man away)...I'm talking about yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarn. I'm trying to purchase by project now which is a big difference from how I'd buy yarn in the past. I would haphazardly throw skein upon skein into the shopping basket (virtual or not) and THEN wonder what in the name of kaleidoscope I was going to do with it. *Of course, this EXCLUDES sock yarn...hello, does not count as stash.

Anywho, KnitPicks had a summer sale a week or so ago and while perusing (and slightly salivating), I found the perfect yarn for a project I REALLY want to make....the BSA Cropped Cardigan. Does someone think I might have a :thing: for BSA patterns? Anywho, 8 skeins of Andean Treasure in Woods Heather jumped into my virtual basket. I got all 8 for around $25...hello, this is 100% BABY FREAKING ALPACA! This beats the yarn the pattern calls for which would have run me about $75...cough. I've heard nothing but good things about Andean Treasure and I can't wait to swatch and knit this up. Yummy.

The other package consisted of goodies from a blogiversary contest I won over at A Knitted Frenzy. Kim totally spoiled me with The Yarn Harlot's new book and a skein of Socks That Rock Mediumweight in Harlotty! THANK YOU KIM!

Now if I could only figure out a way to make the bills come in fibery form. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

And as for me, I've now had to add the BSA pattern to my every growing queue. Oh you are SUCH an enabler!!! (Probably because you have such good taste!)
