I love them all!
I love having new yarn in search of a project--that's the order in which I usually go, yarn first, project TBD...

Hi -
I had to laugh at your post... I do the same thing... buy more and more yarn! I can only knit one scarf at a time! But I do love it. I will visit your Blog - sounds interesting!

Thanks all. I left my new yarn out so I could see it.. and I just kept, kept knitting away at the little baby hat that I was knitting and I finally finished it after about 3 hours. *I posted the photo of the hat in the what cha knitting section.

So, last night.. I cast on w/ one of the soft fuzzy mohair yarns to work on a simple lace stitch that I could teach to a new knitter in the near future. (my friend wanted to learn how to do lace after I showed her examples in the yarn market of knitted scarves in a simple lace stitch.) The yarn market is a really good teaching tool too- since, they have knitted items on display and she was able to pick out the 'basket weave' stitch.. which is what I taught her to use for her scarf. I WAS SO PROUD OF HER.. WHEN SHE'D STOP ME AND SAY, 'Look, here's another scarf in the basketweave stitch.'

But, it was also a good teaching tool- because, I could show her other stitches in person by using the various knitted items in the different yarn vendors shops.
Here's the result..

The red yarn that I started as a scarf.. is in the Italian Mohair yarn. *Also, all the other soft thin fuzzy mult-colored yarns are also the Italian mohair yarns. **I put more detailed photos of the individual groups on my blog.
The mohair was the only yarn that we able to buy only 2 skeins of each color. (I also only bought 2 skeins of the really thick multi-colored yarn)

All the other yarn had to be purchased in packages of 10 skeins (50 grams each) or 500 grams for the package. Or in 4 skeins (of 100 grams each) or 400 gram packages.

I didn't dare take a photograph of the MOUNTAIN of yarn that would have been produced if I had put all the yarn together. I just took a photo of each different yarn.

I wish everyone could fly over here- I'd be happy to take you to the yarn market. However, the $2,000.00 airline ticket would put a dent in the yarn budget.

Some of this yarn was on big, big, sales.. (not a regular event here) most of the yarn that we bought- we only paid $12.00 for four 100 gram skeins.. or an entire package of 4 skeins of 100 grams per skein yarn for only $10.00- 12.00 dollars! 100%wool.
That's why I bought so much yarn.. I only paid full price for 2 packages of yarn.

Ok, now go and buy a plane ticket to Seoul, Korea and bring money for the yarn market... you have a more than willing yarn market escort!
