No rest for the Wicked!

I have done some serious stash building lately, and am beginning to become a little bit embarassed about it. Especially the 23 balls of Patons Jet I got yesterday and today.

I bought the teal yesterday for $1.50 a ball from k-mart, and managed to snare 10 balls! I had my mum over for a visit today and showed her my Wicked, I encouraged her to try it on and it looked fabulous on her! She loved the teal colour, so I now have a project for that yarn. I went back this afternoon with Tania and decided to get another load for no specific purpose. I love the green, but am not sure I could imagine a whole jumper in it - I'm thinking I could end up looking like a giant frog. Nonetheless I now have 13 balls which should be enough in case I change my mind!

I got this Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed from e-bay a few weeks back. It's sitting neglected because I'm not sure what to do with it. I still think the sunrise circle jacket will be great for it, but I'm not in the mood to knit that just yet.

Then I have this Zara... 5 balls of black, which should be enough for Ms. Marigold. I'm not excited by this project anymore - could be the fact that my diet has flown out the window. Maybe ear-mark this one for next summer.

I do have some more yarn coming too. I have some basic 8 ply wool from Rainbow yarns due to arrive in the next week or two, for the French Market Bag, in the colours Grass Green and rich green. I never loved this pattern until I saw it here.

I still have the 10 balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed in DK, which were destined for the Everyday Tweed, but I'm not so sure now. I'm loving the look of these from here



Oh.. and finally (I think!) I ordered the last 4 balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran in Hemlock from The Knittery . No particular reason. I liked the colour!

I was up at Melbourne Kmart and I got balls of the country silk yarn at the ridiculous price of 1c a ball reduced from 2c a ball lol. I am guessing they are getting rid of their wool line? What a great week for your stash. Now the best bit planning what to make with it. Have fun :)
