Farmhouse Yarns

aka Stash Enhancement

Jenn, Sami, and I ventured out into the wilds of Connecticut and went to Farmhouse Yarns for her "fill-a-bag" sale. It was something alright. I originally planned to buy nothing (yes, feel free to laugh here - can you imagine me leaving a yarn sale empty-handed? Apparently neither could I) having just come along for the ride. Yup.

But, I didn't do too badly - the three of us split a bag ($159 for all the yarn you can shove in a bag and shove is the operative word here) and I came home with 6 skeins of yarn. By my standards that's practically nothing, anyway.

The loot:
  • 2 skeins Bessie (mohair/wool)in Rainforest
  • 2 skeins Bessie (mohair/wool)in Wine Rose
  • 2 skeins Andy (100% merino wool)in Violet


*Yes, there is a skein missing - one of the violet skeins is already on its way to becoming a pair of fuzzy feet slippers for me. It's getting cold here and felted slippers seem like a perfect use for this yarn*
