Stash Enhancement: Things just keep on coming in...

I keep trying to be good.....and then things happen and then the next thing you know, I have packages arriving at my house with yarn and I don't even know where they all came from or how I got them and my fingers did the buying and.....

Well, let's just see what new stash has arrived at my house already!

In my quest for all things Hunger Games, I got ahold of one of these:

This is a skein of Lorna's Laces Solemate in the "Catching Fire" colorway (November 2013). I'm a little curious about this one as it's a 55% superwash merino, 30% rayon, and 15% nylon blend. I've heard it will hold up well for socks. We shall see.

I also participated in a trade with someone wherein I received this (and they got a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock from me). This is a skein of Vesper Sock from Knitterly Things in the "Love Stinks (Yeah Yeah)" colorway. I'm suddenly reminded of "The Wedding Singer" and Adam Sandler singing this song.

And lastly, I ordered a skein of Slash Self-Striping from Mudpunch in the "Wet Blanket" colorway. She was having an "I got a nasty email" sale that I caught via Instagram and I picked this up. I've been eyeing things for months and finally pulled the trigger.

So, all that happened. I might have more coming. I don't remember. Also, my fabric order arrived from Spoonflower but as I still don't have a working washing machine, I can't wash it and send it off to Lindsey at Erin Lane Bags. So, once that's sorted out, I'm having Lindsey make some project bags for me. Woo.

Anyway, I hope you're having a lovely day :)
