I think that I have mentioned before that I try to buy yarn for myself only 2x per year. The Yarn Barn has 2 sales a year and those are the times which I choose to spend almost all of my yearly yarn budget. I only bought one sweaters worth of yarn at the July sale. Depending on how you count it I bought enough for 4-5 sweaters at the year end sale.
That is the Cascade pile. The blue and green are Eco +, which will be sweaters for my two nieces. The brown Ecological Wool is for a sweater for myself. I have loved this yarn since I first saw it and now I am really excited to make something out of it. It is a nice bulky weight with 478 yds per skein which means that I think I will only need 1 for each little girl sweater and 2 for myself.
This is Harrisville Shetland. The yarn when sold on cones is meant for weavers but after washing it blooms really nicely. I have dreamed of a color work sweater for a while now and this will be the yarn I use. I bought the smallest cones they had but will have a decent amount left over. Lucky for me the red sweater I am currently making is also out of this yarn, so the leftovers can all be combined to make something else. I am thinking a vest or another sweater if there is enough left over.
Now I need to start knitting faster.
