What a stunning variety of yarn! It's hard to know where to start but you're up for the difficult jobs. Enjoy planning out your projects and many thanks to the yarn angel.

Those are great looking yarns!!! Have fun knitting with them. Make sure you take pics when you get something knitted. Love the red!!
I keep telling my husband when I come home with more yarn that I need to buy all of this now as when I retire I won't be able to afford it. At least it's a good excuse. He buys his books and other sports related things and I buy yarn. Don't we make a fine pair. Will need to add on to the house if we keep adding stuff.
DH keeps eyeing my craft closet for more bookcases and I keep saying no way!!! Gotta love 'em!!!

Thanks for posting the picture! Those are so beautiful--how can you put them out of sight?

ABC: Yeah, every time my husband buys an expensive new toy (a new gun or, lately, bowfishing stuff), I remind him how much yarn is equal to his toy. I'm just teasing him, though. Even I have to admit that I don't need THAT much yarn.

Well that's such a nice story, GrumpyGramma! What a pleasant surprise! At the beginning of your story, I though maybe you had ordered the yarn yourself...and you were excited about DELIVERY DAY! but now I'm thinking...it was a box of GIFTED YARN! YAY!

Yup. All I paid was postage. I'm still pinching myself to see if I'm awake.
