Ooh very nice collection! I must admit that I'm not a big fan of yellow, but seeing it in your pile makes me want to pick some up too. So what are you planning to make?

Wow, you DID go shopping. Look at all the pretty colors. Let me know how you like the "I Love This Yarn" I've been kind of curious about it.

The yellow in the pic is more of a gold. I picked out these colors for some hats I have in mind.

I've worked with the I Love This Yarn on a few projects and like it fine.

The yarn looks nice.. ESPECIALLY THE BLUE YARN~

but, Mason.. IF I were to show you a photo of the yarn that I bought when I went shopping this weekend.. you'd feel like you needed to go buy some more yarn! :roflhard:

If you're interested.. you can see the photos of my new yarn in my blog entry for today.

Thanks Pauline.. I need to take my camera back there and take some photos that REALLY SHOW what it's like there.. it is amazing. Right now, they seem to be putting some yarns on sale.. (a package of 400 grams *The soft lavender and medium lavender were only $14.00 for 100% wool. That's why I bought two of them to make some donated hats/etc. :D

I think I need to go back this weekend and see what else is on sale! ;) :rofl: :teehee:

Beautiful colors! I am making a hat for my son that you might be interested in if you haven't already seen this pattern:

It is called a Halfdome hat for guys. I see your picture, so I thought you might like this hat, since the one you are wearing is similar!
