The Yarn That I Bought :-/ .......

So, I bought yarn recently.  I kind of got obsessed with a little thing called Wollmeise.

First I bought this lovely skein:

There's a lot of purple in this skein that I just could get to show up in the pictures.

Next I bought this purple/pink skein:

Next I bought these skeins, two greens, a purple, and a teal:

The next two skeins I bought, I got from the actual Wollmeise shop.

Out of all of these skeins, I gave Heather three as an early birthday present.  I let her choose which skeins.  She took the bright green, the blue/purple, and the teal:

I've decided that I'm going to make a Whippoorwill out of these two:

So I really haven't kept with my yarn diet lately, but what are you going to do?  These skeins are just so gorgeous and I wanted to splurge on Heather.  She's been so great to me lately and she went all out on me for Christmas.

The second purchase of yarn that Dave bought me came in yesterday.  I show it to you soon.  The pictures I just took are a little dark.

    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Oooooo my, you are going to be soooooo busy(: I especially like your cobalt-purple-blue yarn. The pattern you linked to is beautiful and it will be fun to see your progress reports, Sam!
    Happy stitching! <3

  3. Don't worry - think of all the lovely things you will have when you have knitted it all up.

  4. Beautiful colours. And yarn what?? Diet is a four letter word :)
