Adding to Stash

For anyone who crafts by hand, the word stash is loaded.
That can be a good thing or a bad thing.
It all depends on how much, what type, and whether the sun is warm and shining.

For me, at the moment, it is a good thing.
And the sun is shining ... at least for this one day.
Tomorrow is another thing.

This is leading up to a confession ... I went shopping.
Got an email early last week from one of my favorite local yarn shops
Everything was on sale, including the already on-sale items.
Who could resist? I'm always willing to help a shopkeeper who is wanting
to minimize the amount of time spent on year-end inventory!
Mirasol Lachiwa l from Peru
60% Pima Cotton
40% Linen
This is going to be perfect for the Texas summer!
I just need to learn how to shape knitted garments.
Schulana Mosco
67% Viscose
20% Mohair
13% Nylon
Not the most "natural" yarn in the world, although viscose is considered
a "natural" fiber even though the process to create it uses a 
lot of chemistry.
But the feel is fabulous and it sparkles.
I'm a sucker for yarn that has a nice hand and sparkles!
M&K ECO Baby Bomull from Switzerland (I think)
100% Cotton
The color is what drew me to this yarn.
When I saw it, I thought "poppy red."
Not sure what to do with this amount, but I'm sure Ravelry will have something.

At the moment, my stash is at a very acceptable, manageable level.
Here's hoping I don't get any emails from nice yarn shops!
