Stash Enhancement on a Saturday: I fell off the wagon....

Happy Saturday :)

Apparently I'm feeling rather chatty. A post yesterday, one today, another tomorrow, and probably another on Monday.........

As it says above, I fell off the wagon and stash acquisitions happened. To be fair, two of these entries are clubs but the other two are not...

First up....

I believe this is my June shipment for Erin Lane Bags Indie Carnival club. It has a project bag, of course, and a lovely skein from Must Stash, which I hadn't heard of until it appeared in my mailbox. The colorway is called Bahama Breeze. We also got a pattern to go with it and I might even make it...I haven't decided yet.


This is my last shipment from KnitCircus for their Gradient Club. It's on their new base, called Trampoline, which has 440 yds. The colorway is called the Whole Enchilada. We also got a 4-pk of washable bamboo buttons from Katrinkles.

And then, these happened.....

The top is four skeins of madelinetosh Tosh Chunky and the bottom is a skein of madelinetosh 80/10/10 MCN Worsted, all of them in the Molly Ringwald colorway. Apparently it's Pretty in Pink Molly Ringwald, not Sixteen Candles Molly Ringwald.....except that it matches the dress from Sixteen Candles. Whatever. I had occasionally looked for this colorway, never really found it, and then I got a bug in my pants last month and I found a few in destashes...which came home with me :)

I fell off the wagon. Oops.


  1. It's hard to stay on that wagon. I really want to try Madelinetosh and Must Stash yarns at some point. Always see awesome reviews and colorways are always amazing. Lovely additions to your stash!

  2. I've seen muststash on instagram....I love the Molly Ringwald...not a pink girl, but love the concept...

  3. My exact reaction to the top yarn and bag was "Oh, YUM!". I love pink so your whole collection looks great.

    I think I'm about to go to Must Stash and fall off the wagon myself.

  4. A classic that Sixteen Candles. Loved that movie.

  5. If you were going to fall off the wagon,thats a pretty specatcular pile of yarn to fall into! Love the project bag, too.
