Squirreling Yarn for Winter?!

Tuesday, Debby came over to RI and we went out to The Knitting Corner in Middletown and Bella Yarns in Warren. We were both looking for Louisa Harding yarn and really lucked out when we found the exact yarn we wanted on sale for 40% off! This is Thalia, for one of several tops I like...I'm not sure which one I'm going to settle on yet.

I got two books, including the Beachcomber Bay accessories one with the pretty scarf on the front.

Here are the yarns I think I'm going to use to make it! I may look for a turquoise without silver in it as I'm not sure I want to mix gold and silver...isn't that taboo? I am not sure yet if I will do the fringe, but it would be easier than weaving in the ends!

This is one random skein that was just too pretty to leave behind. It might be for another version of the above...

It is fun to put together 'kits' for upcoming projects. I may plan a couple more before I stop my yarn buying binge. For example, I'd like to find the yarn for a Louisa Harding shrug in the Swallowtail book.

I am trying hard to finish Jeff's sweater before I cast on something new. I actually need the same needles I'm using for the sweater for the next items and only have the one pair in that size, so that's helping to keep me focused on the sweater for now!
