loookie at all the goodies that i got on sale today! though i must say, i got charged for more yarn than i bought so i have to go back tomorrow...and likely will spend more than they need to credit me for...lol

the one that amazes me the most is the one in front that looks gray. it is absolutely lavender in natural daylight. amazing to me!

i was talking to a friend on the phone on the way to the yarn store and told her i had called my p/t job and told them i was going to be late cuz i had to go to this sale. she laughed so hard she was nearly in tears cuz she said "you are the only person i know who plays hookie from work to go buy yarn!" :rofling: I got to work and my friend Blase said "i TOLD them you were out buying yarn!"...lol...whatta rat! ;)

Yummy, yummy!!! :cheering: :cheering: Nice score.
I would say that I was green with envy but my sweet dh bought me the only 5 skeins of this (http://www.knitpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=863) left in the LYS in Charleston. And I am going to make.....this scarf (http://www.helloyarn.com/besottedcarf.htm) for him with .....these socks (http://www.colby.edu/personal/l/leosborn/anniversox.htm) to match because he bought the yarn for me on his birthday...so I will surprise him :inlove:

BUT....very, very impressive haul you have and I want to know what it's telling you to do with it as it makes up it's mind ;)

brendajos what have you done to me!? I've been searching and searching the net and can't find that one particular color.... this is the closest I came to http://www.tahkistacycharles.com/Yarns/yarns_detail.asp?CatID=1&ID=10&New=False&pg=11 They have the all red but I'm fond of the multicolored red. I'm gonna check the lys up the street. I've got it bad for that yarn...
resuming mission ..

well it is color number 1477. my yarn store that i went to is www.personalthreads.com. They may still have some available. when i got it they didn't have it in the computer and had to put it through as a special purchase (same for the blue multi-color)...i haven't been able to find it online anywhere either. i just checked though and it looks like they are closed...:( sorry i can't be of more help...

oh well, thanks for the heads up! I'll try them on Mon. So it's still not mission impossible then?
My lys didn't have it either. I 'bout walked out with 80 bucks worth of yarn though. I had to smack myself to put it down. But they had a 2 dollar sale of misc. leftovers and I did find a ball to finish my shawl. So it wasn't a complete let down.
Thanks

All of the yarn is gorgeous! You made quite the haul. Nothing like some good stash enhancement :)
