Yarn, Yarn Everywhere

After working at the yarn store for 9 hours yesterday, I come home to this:



Yep, its around 90 pounds of yarn (and gulp) already skeined off into the 450 yard skeins I'll now be using! How exciting! This should hopefully last me the next 2 months or so.

And here are some majorly delayed pictures of yesterdays update on etsy. These are the new superwash colorways: Dragonfly, Emerald Isle, Aran Islands, Wildflowers, Girls Night Out, and my favorite, Beach Day (though Dragonfly is a close second). There is still plenty of stuff up there right now, so go check it out :)

that is one HUGE pile of yarn! Question on the yarns - do they all self stripe, or are some very short repeat varigated?

Wow I am with you the DragonFly and Beach Day are my favorites. I came across your blog the other day and had been waiting for new yarn to post on your store. Unfortunately for me, When I went and looked all the DragonFly was goneL(

I'll have to be on the lookout for your next Big Dyerama.

That pile of yarn is so *fantastic* that I almost choked on my water. Love the colors, too! I have the same question as stacey--how long are the color repeats? Does it tend to stripe or pool for, say, an average-sized woman's sock?

' woolen monster on your floor ' took the words right out of my mouth! Seriously, it's a little creepy and fabulous all at the same time. :) LOVE the new colorways! I'm also loving your new NSS's... will be stashing in my future, AGAIN! Keep up the great work.

Wow! An amazing amount of yarn!! I'd be a little...well overwhelmed! I'm so glad it is already skeined for you though!! whew! Yeah..I scored some wildflowers...dragonfly is next :)

The new colorways are great! I esp like Dragonfly.

Oooh, I'd love to see Dragonfly in person... perhaps tomorrow at Knitsmiths?

I'd love to pre-order some of the Wildflower and Dragonfly colors myself but am also curious about the questions from above regarding the length of the color repeats and whether or not pooling is ever a problem on an average woman's sock. Is there anyway to reserve some of your yarns?

Thanks!

Holy buckets of yarn batman! Wow. That's a bit intimidating. I love, love, love the new colorways. If I hadn't put myself on another yarn diet, I'd order some in every color!

Hi Darlin' - I'm so psyched I got a skein of Beach before it sold out!

Thanks for sharing all the Ireland photos - they are absolutely gorgeous. I hope you're settling back in.
