Brought to you by the letter R

We finally got up to see my folks for our Christmas, and...

...well, see for yourself...



















That's yarn. Rowan yarn. Alot of Rowan yarn.

And it's mine, all MINE! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

My Mom somehow came into several thousand skeins of Rowan Cashsoft yarn. Aran, DK, 4 ply, Baby DK.... we're talking ALOT of yarn here, folks. I had asked her to put aside a grocery-bag full for me, sight unseen. Added to that is another two bags full for a Christmas present (thanks, Mom!). And then, this morning, Mom-The-Enabler had put all the remaining yarn she had in a huge, colorful, delicious pile in the middle of the living room floor.

Yeah, I bought more. ;-)

The end result of this yarn shopping orgy is 74 skeins of Rowan Cashsoft.

74 skeins

of Cashsoft

I may just leave it on the floor and roll in it nekkid.....

Wow! What an awesome haul! So now the question, other than rolling around nekid in it... what are you doing to do with it? :)

Any projects in mind?

Siercia said...

DAMN.

That's a lot of Cashsoft.

Annie said...

Phew! Has your mother considered adopting? I'm sure there are dozens of us lined up to be chosen. ;)

I can hardly wait to see what you're gonna do with this haul!

Gadabout asked what I'm planning on knitting with this bounty - the random single skeins will be a baby sweater for The Mister's grandbaby (due in July), the black skeins are socks for The Mister, the 2 garnet skeins are gloves, the two bags of lilac are a sweater for me (design to be determined), and the bag of brown is a comfort shawl for a friend. Other than that, I'm happy to take suggestions! lol!!

wow a bit of yarn envy is being felt... not quite sure how to react... but I'm excited for you! :) - I think I'm glad it's your yarn and not mine... because it'd just mean more projects to knit before my stash is leveled to a more reasonable quantity....

congrats! but you must share the story of how your mom came across all that yarn!
