I Heart Woolgirl

I know not a surprise if you've read my blog at all. But it still needs to be said. I love Woolgirl. Not just the shop, but Jen! I've been trying to be better about my yarn purchases this year, which included resisting her fabulous New Year's sale and all those updates! And although technically I was getting yarn for my birthday (money to spend on yarn at Stitches!), I needed a little Woolgirl fix for my birthday (and I had a 10% off coupon from sock club!)! Seriously, what better way to treat yourself on your birthday, then to send yourself some yarn pressies!!


Woolgirl Pressies

And I used my destash money!!

Birthday yarn

So pretty!! Four of those are one of my new loves, PigeonRoofStudios.
All I can say is WOW! I was a bit nervous, ordering that many of one yarn without seeing it and touching it, but the colors were so fabulous. Love both the fingering and sport weight.

Plum Tortie

PigeonRoofStudios, fingering weight, color Plum Tortie

Madelinetosh

Couldn't resist the MadelineTosh Turquoise either. Ahhhhh. Now I want the Olivia too.

Dream in Color Classy

Oops. The Dream in Color Classy, Gothic Rose, couldn't fit in the photos!
Three more days until Disco is here!! Oh, and Stitches!!


Happy Stash Enhancement Week!!

What fun wrapped packages! And the yarn looks wonderful. I have n't tried any of the PigeonRoof yarn yet, but I did get some of her roving from tsy and just love the colors.

So now that my eyeballs have popped out, who do I send the bill to have them popped back in? You or Jen?
