Yes, this post is as it states, a show of wool piggery in its purest form. In my defense some of this I got for Christmas 2016 and the rest was acquired throughout the rest of 2017 thus far. There is a lot of Knit Picks here and I also went to a new and amazing yarn shop, Just Yarnin’ (review to follow in a few weeks!). I don’t have all the yarn shown here (some is in my scrap ghan and some is who knows where but from brands like Lion Brand and Red Heart designated for projects for my family and boyfriend). Without further ado, the yarn parade!
First of all I bought a yarn swift!!!!! The best picture I have is of the swift and yarn above but man was I excited to get this. The swift is from Knit Picks but I have know they have amazing customer service and it is perfect for my needs. It actually came two weeks ago and the day it came I was parading it around the house like a weirdo but I have no shame admitting it!

This gorgeous yarn was a Christmas gift from my amazing parents. I hit up Knit Picks Cyber Monday sales and got this yarn and waited not so patiently to unwrap it on Christmas Eve.

I also snagged this yarn on the Cyber Monday sale. These are designated for shawls…I just have to decide on patterns…

This summer I was able to finally visit an amazing yarn shop, Just Yarnin’ in St Germain, WI, only about 25 minutes away from my Grandma’s house. I picked up a ton of yarn (thanks mom for buying me a skein too!). I absolutely have to to back, and am so happy its at least ‘local’ to me in the sense that I visit my Grandma a lot!

Might I add that this shop carries Wonderland Yarns!!! So excited for this one. The Knitted Wit caught my eye and one of the women in the shop was knitting it up into a project. It looked stunning so I couldn’t pass it up.

That same trip but another day we ended up heading to another town to shop and Hobby Lobby had these on clearance…Hello socks!

You may recognize this yarn from the box image at the head of this post. Yes I did buy this all at once. This amazing selection of glory is a Hawthorn sampler pack and I have no regrets. Find Your Fade anyone?
On to the notions. At Hobby Lobby I picked up some needles and scissors for a few small projects. The big deal are the Addi Turbo Sock Rockets! I got these at Just Yarnin’ and I am beyond excited to try them out ASAP!
Finally, the amazing shop owner of Just Yarnin’ added these lovely notions to my bag with my yarn purchase. I must say their logo is amazing (my inner graphic designer is happy!). Definitely check them out if you are ever in the area!
Phew, that’s a lot of yarn. Let’s be honest though, I regret nothing! I know I’m an addict. Now I need to knit it up…pattern suggestions welcome! Have an amazing week!
