I don't have a large stash, especially when you compare it to some of my friends and their collections. Mostly I buy only what I "need", unless something jumps out at me, and implores me to take it home. My system works for me, but sometimes what I have on hand just won't do for the projects I have in mind.
Last night I took some well-deserved time off at Fibre Space, my favorite LYS in the area here, and did a little shopping for me! I'm one of those shoppers that normally escapes with a total bill under $30... but believe me, before I've left the store, I was sure to fondle every expensive and luscious hank in there! Thanks to a wonderful friend, last night was funded by a gift certificate. (Thank you, Carol!)
So...my latest project is the Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood. The sample at Fibre Space was knit up in a yummy gray Shelter, and was uber gorgeous! However, I was drawn to a cozy "wild berries" colored worsted yarn by Stonehedge Shepherd's Wool and picked up 3 hanks for the project.
