New yarn!

Got some lovely new stuff from WEBS. Unfortunately, I got dinged with customs charges, and the shipping was more than I expected, so the sale price was pretty much eaten up. But still, pretty, pretty:

This is Araucania Nature Wool, which I love. It's the same yarn I'm using for Oblique (sleeves finished!) in a gorgeous berry-red. I'll knit some sort of sweater out of it.

Next is Cascade 220 Heathers, also in red. I'm planning to knit Jared Flood's Girasole with this.

Finally, Valley Yarns Northfield, for another top for Maria (she's very easy to knit for; we seem to like the same stuff): Anney from Twist Collective.

All this yarn meant resorting my stash, which always leaves me sort of frustrated. So much pretty yarn and not enough time to knit it. (Of course, most people think I knit plenty as it is.)
