WEBS Tent Sale

I may have gone slightly overboard...  I finally got spend my fantastically generous gift card from Britt though, so that took a bit of the sting out of the price.  Plus, it was the tent sale after all so the deals were nice.

Plymouth Yarn
Suri Merino
55% Alpaca, 45% Merino
a pale purple
(enough to make a sweater)


Valley Yarns
Lenox
60% Alpaca, 30% Merino, 10% Cashmere
Sea Spray
(enough to make a sweater)



ella rae
Amity Heathers
75% Acrylic, 25% Wool
a grass green color
(intended to get enough for a sweater, but miscalculated and my need to order some more)



Noro
King
33% Microfiber, 23% Silk, 23% Mohair, 20% Wool
grays, silvers, pinks, and purples



Abstract Fiber
Matisse
100% Superwash Blue Faced Leicester Wool
multicolored with a green base


Madelinetosh
tosh lace
100% Merino
Flashdance (more purple less blue than it looks in the picture)

Did you notice anything missing?  No sock yarn!  I always get sock yarn... but there wasn't any that I thought I MUST have so I was able to resist (I have plenty to keep me busy for a long time anyway).  I couldn't deny myself some new lace yarn though (even though I have plenty of that stockpiled as well!).  

I better get knitting!  I am going to have plenty to keep me busy all summer...

Review: Thor

I saw Thor yesterday and really enjoyed it.  Chris Hemsworth was HOT as Thor.  I might have just found a new favorite superhero...  I used to think no one could steal me away from Wolverine, but...
 


It was a fun movie.  Good action, lots of humor.  Looking forward to The Avengers when I can drool over Thor a little more :)
