I could say it was only because I won a skein of yarn!
Wool Candy Meringue Merino, colorway Sugared Violet
Look at this pretty pretty skein of Wool Candy that I won in a Bobbin's Nest Studios (one of our LYS) contest! Thank you!! They are now carrying this gorgeous yarn.... its local, how could they not carry it!
I then couldn't resist trying a skein of the sportweight, Wool Candy Fondant Merino.
Wool Candy Fondant Merino, colorway Fresh Fig
Neuroknitter and I discovered Wool Candy together at Sock Summit and it was instant love!! I think we may have convinced Woolgirl to start carrying it too (crossing fingers!!)! ETA: Woolgirl just posted on her blog that Wool Candy arrives this Friday to her shop (so if you aren't local, now you have an online retailer!)
Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes
Oh, and these goodies. Well, I had to hang out at Purlescence and knit for a bit! And they just happened to be 40% off and I have a hat in mind for Snowboarder! Totally justified, right?! hehehe (oh goodness, the stash keeps growing.....)
Dansko Women's Solitaire Veg Clog,Red,38 EU (US Women's 7.5-8 M)
And the shoe stash?! Yes, I just had to get these new Dansko shoes at Sock Summit (my first pair! and won't be my last!)! Don't they match my new sock just perfectly?! Socks that Rock in the colorway ST-1 in my new pattern (a sneak peek! it'll be out soon!!)!
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Any new stash enhancements I should know about on your end?
Happy Knit from your Stash Week!!
p.s. Contest still open here!
