Yarn! more Yarn!

OK, so there are yarn shops in Texas. One fairly close! I promise a full report on Inskein Yarns soon.

But first, I still have some yarns to share that are already in the stash.

Loopy Ewe has the most fun "you shop here too often" program. I qualified for the "Welcome to Denver" award. A little kit for a cute phone cozy, plus a pad of "Time Out Notes." A great idea to help keep track of where I leave off on my multiple projects!

Ewe Count in Cheyenne had a sample made from this Trendsetter Yarn. "Topper" is a fluffy, ready-made pom pom that will be perfect for granddaughter hats next winter!

Rather than make you scroll through twenty photos this week, I piled all the new "Hats for Sailors" yarn and took one photo. My favorite is "Copper Corgi" in the upper right -- exactly the color of My Little Sailor's corgi, Duncan!

I knew I wanted a Zauberball 6-ply yarn, but couldn't remember for what! Luckily, Ravelry came to the rescue and I had Brenda Dayne's "Neckfish" in my queue.

Stay tuned for the Texas Yarn Report!

Sunday Stash

I shared the yarn I collected while on my trip to Cheyenne last month. And here is some of the fabric new to the stash.

All of these save the low-volume club come from Ruth's Stitchery. They are getting more and more great new "modern" fabrics in the shop!

First, some pillowcase fabric for my niece who just joined the US Navy. She is an engineer, so I think this fabric is perfect for her.

And of course, for My Little Sailor:

I don't know how I missed these Alison Glass prints at Ruth's!

Alison Glass Sun Print "Mercury" for Hawthorne Threads

A few more low volume FQs. You know, just in case they stop printing them!

And here is my March "Low Volume Club" bundle from  Sew Lux Fabrics.

As Dr. Seuss would say, "That's not all!"  
Come back next Sunday for another Stash Report!
