If you could...



...Lay in a pile of yarn would you?




Yeah, Us too!




I have told you all that Jill and I are working on patterns for a book proposal we have submitted and we are constantly working on patterns for our The Purse Workshop.com as well. So, when the lovely owner of Knit Knack here in Olde Town Arvada took us up on our offer to purchase all her remaining Ella Rae Classic Wool yarn (she isn't selling it anymore) at cost...we couldn't resist.

So, do you think we have enough? LOL!!

You should have seen JOHN'S face when he walked in and saw my new stash enhancement :-)

Can I roll around in your new stash? :-) Looks like heaven!

HA! @ your hubby's face.

Great deal on the "at cost" yarn!
Enjoy creating!!

Catie said...

As I said before, it would have been criminal to resist - you actually didn't have another option... I can't wait to see what you make with it.

Tracie said...

Wow! Yarn envy. And here I thought I got a good deal on six skiens of yarn the other day. Six. Versus your six hundred...or a little less. But still...

Can't wait to see what all of that yarn becomes. And yes, I'd lay in it if given a chance.

Hee hee! Too funny! Sorry we missed you at Trick or Treat Street. We looked for you. :(

KrisW said...

of COURSE I'd jump and roll in all that yarn, silly! Wow...enjoy the stash "enhancement!" Just listened to the new podcast...it was SO funny, and I'm ready for the next one!
Kris in NH :)

Okay - so I am jealous - not that I would have time to do anything with it but some of those colors are so lucisous -

Brianna said...

That's easily 120 balls or so. Wow. And at cost, too. Poor John, I can't even imagine.

Hahaha.

Allegra said...

Wow. Wow. That's all I can say.

Now THAT's a yarn stash! Lucky you to receive it all at cost. Have fun designing with it.
I'm surprised you didn't hide it from John. I never let my husband see my yarn collection. Well, only in dribs and drabs. That way you keep them in the dark.

Pretty yarn. That looks like fun, but if I did that at my house there would be too much dog and cat fur embedded in the yarn after the dive.

Loretta said...

can I TOUCH IT???


Ok, I wanna roll in it too.

(The purple in the middle is YUMMY and the blue variegated in the front is NICE......)

amanda said...

AAAH!! Makes me want to dump my stash on the floor :) FUN!!

StarSpry said...

It's so pretty!!! :D

Lolly said...

How fun! whole new meaning to stash diving :)

Diane Lovell said...

WOW! You're poor husband must have just *died*! :)

Nelly Knits said...

wow, that's a lot of yarn, but it looks so fun to lay in!

ericah64 said...

Honey, if the yarn were soft enough, I'd roll around in it NAKED! ;-D

kaoticorchid said...

That's great! I love it! The colrs are so pretty, too!

Diane Lovell said...

Hey Marly! I've been checking out the Purse-Workshop site. Looks awesome!!

You mentioned on your About Me page that your podcast comes out 'bi-weekly'. Do you really say that in the US? We say 'fortnightly'. I guess from 'fourteen' because there's fourteen nights in two weeks.

Anyhoo - thought you might be interested in that little tid-bit.

Hey Marly
I awarded you a Nice Matters award on my blog.

So. Jealous. I'd roll around and then curl up for a fibery nap!
