No yarn diet here

I didn't put away any Christmas decorations, but I did clean out a cabinet where lo and behold I found a missing screw. It doesn't match the switch plate, but it's usually behind the china closet anyway. Here's the unrelated picture of the day:

I haven't been on a yarn diet (too hard at this sale time of year), so here are my recent yarn purchases.

First, a Christmas gift arrangement from work--marked down to 70% off. It's a wine tube (needle holder), a skein of Lion Brand Homespun (storing up for the next prayer shawl), and a pair of size 11 needles.

I bought a grab bag of yarn from Cherry Tree Hill. I've never tried this yarn before, so it will be fun.

On the left is Jumbo Loop--a bulky Mohair Boucle in Champagne, and on the right is Baby Loop--a light sport mohair boucle--water color.

I've never knit with either before (sorry-that was redundant. I guess if I've never tried this yarn then I've never knit with it either....). Maybe it'll be time to make a lace shawl.

Here's some more sale yarn--$1 yer skein.

Who doesn't need a stash of fancy fur?

Nice to see I'm not the only one not on a yarn diet. LOL. Nice haul! I've got fun fur in my stash and every time I look at it I say, "What the hell was I thinking buying this stuff?"

Oh yummie! I am also not on a yarn diet, but I did not have the chance to buy yarn in a while. I hope to do that again in time soon. Enjoy your new yarns though.
