Lovely acquisitions Andi.

I got a truck load myself this week past. And they all came on Friday -- which as you know -- I really needed. LOLOL!

Can't wait to see what you do with yours.


Seriously? You got all that in the mail?? What am I doing wrong? That Luna Grey yarn looks especially divine. Due to finances, I am on a yarn buying freeze and it is hard! You do such lovely work-can't wait to see your progress photos--and yikes...August is just right around the corner!


SO many love-ly yarns.....can't wait to see what you dream up. Gorgeous colors and prints on that most awesome bag!Have a fun week.
ps (changed my blog)


love all your acquisitions - especially that we all stayed in the same color family. they all scream Andi!


Ohhh everything is just gorgeous! I've been dreaming with Luna Grey's yarns but money is a bit tight tight now. Better times will come ;)
Have a lovely week!


Seriously??? Your stash cannot get any better and then you add these gorgeous grays? I'm so happy for you. You deserve nothing but the most beautiful yarn. xoxo


hi my friend! the llama bag & the halloween bag are too cute! and the yarn, oh my you lucky,lucky girl~ can't wait to see what you create~ i just purchased my first madeline tosh to make my daughter handwarmers, such beautiful yarn and in gray (she may never see those warmers ha!) last week on vacation we came across a yarn shop (imagine that) and i left with two hanks of mohair & two of cascade souk' which will be turned into a lala shawl for moi'~ i've sent a few friends to the kal~ what a fun group we are!
happy weekending~
the chatty one


After reading this post, I immediately ordered the Luna Grey Lyra in the Harbor color. Can't wait to get it!!! almost 1000 yds of lace weight - how dreamy!


(○o○) OOH…loveky y-a-r-n.


Ok, that is one cute bag. And the yarn! Stunning. Is it just a coincidence they are all muted/gray tones?


yes, i do think you need to rename this post. i'm in love here! that harbor, the bag, yay for your first plucky! and that gorgeous deep blue, yes indeed midnight is sexy. need some now! and a shawl named cold mountain? my list has just grown yet again.
love that band :)


I almost fell when a shipment of Tosh came into my LYS. But I was strong.... and tempted someone else to buy what I had been eyeing.

Can't wait to see your Cold Mountain Shawl. It is quite pretty.

Okay, I have SERIOUS stash envy! Despite the fact that I end up knitting lots of colours, I do have a serious thing for grey (one of my billion projects I want to start involves using up colours and combining them with grey- yummy!) Can't wait to see what you do with all this.
PS Thanks for the Jitterbug Boogie mention :-)


Ooooh Andy! Your latest acquisitions are delightfull!


awesome yarns as always! And no, it's not just you, there's something about this year.. though maybe it's just me not being a student anymore :D


whenever yarn arrives it's like a holiday in the house! Lovely array and I bet you are itching to casting on everything all at once :)


Oh what wonderful things to come in the mail!


I want to squish everything in this post. That Plucky, was that from the preorder from several weeks ago? Does that mean mine is coming soon?? :D


Love the colours of the Luna yarn and I love the project bag too!

Annie @ knitsofacto

My problem is that I read your reviews and find myself desperate to order yarn from the US but can't because the import duty I'd pay is ridiculous. If an order is over $23, and that's including postage to the UK, I immediately have to pay UK VAT at 17.5%, plus £6/$10 for the privilege of having it collected from me. Maybe I should relocate to the USA!


Love the yarns and project bag, you always find the most gorgeous goodies. Thanks for sharing with us all.


That is not just good mail that is break-down-and-cry-it-is-all-so-beautiful-mail. I don't know if I have ever had such a good mail time as you have just had. What what a wonderful treat to cast on immediately. I would make myself wait till I'd finished my list of projects on the go and then probably the joy would have worn quite off. There is a life lesson there for me I reckon. Love the colours, the joy, the sheer abandon!

Droooooool. Gorgeous colours choices... I love the dark moody colours. That bag is insanely gorgeous too!


Those colors are just to dye for!! I love deep smokey greys and blues!!! Now tell me...when it arrived did you pet it, smell it , snuggle it to your cheek and call it " my precious"

Not that I do these things... (ahmm..throat clearing) BUT I hear it happens! ;-)

Ciao Bella!


I couldn't stand it. The Good To Be a Girl owl project bag was too stinkin' cute. I contacted the shop owner and she made a custom order for me! Whoo hoo! I contacted her Sunday, and even though she didn't have any more of that fabric, she got more from the shop she had purchased it from and had my bag made within a day. A day!

I let her know where I had seen the bag (linked to your blog post in my note to her). Thanks for sharing!

Just a Thought

  • “You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them...In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...You - only you - will have stars that can laugh.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
