Holy Yarn Sale!

I was very sad to hear on Thursday afternoon that Gotham Fine Yarn will be closing :o(  The owner is moving overseas and is closing up shop.  Sad that one of my favorite LYSs is closing, but the good news is...

Everything is 40% off!

So what does that mean?  Oh I just doubled my stash.  Take a look at some of my new acquisitions:

Yarn Stash
Here's the whole stash.
Big pile, huh?  Maybe I went a big overboard...

Mirasol Miski
10 skeins of Mirasol Miski for $55.
What a steal!  I'm hoping to make my first sweater with this.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

String Theory Caper Sock
2 skeins different pinks String Theory Caper Sock
God, I love this yarn.  How could I not buy it.  When I left, there were still two skeins of a mustardy color there.  I may have to go back for them.

Ella Ra Classic
2 skeins Ella Rae Classic
These are for another Weekend Hat for one of The Boy's co-workers.

Artyarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter
Artyarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter
One of my no-designated-project purchases.  But Silk Rhapsody for just about half off?  SOLD!  I think there's a pattern in Reversible Knits that will work for it.

Jojoland Cashmere
2 skeins Jojoland Cashmere
CASHMERE!  Two skeins for just about $30.  Another don't-know-what-I'm-gonna-do-with-you projects, but I'm thinking a nice scarf and fingerless gloves or maybe a cowl.  Something I can wear close to my face to cuddle with in the cold NYC winters.

Artyarns Cottonspring and Malabrigo Worsted
4 skeins Malabrigo Worsted and 4 skeins Artyarns Cottonspring
These will be used to make a nice cuddly winter blanket for Autumn.  Not sure of a pattern yet, but probably something simple or my own design.

Ella Rae Classic Superwash

I'm going to use these to make the Halloween Hat from Debby Ware's Scrumptious Toppers book (review coming tomorrow) for Autumn.

And then there was this.  For a wee $23 I bought...

Louet Drop Spindle Kit

...a Louet Drop Spindle Kit.  The kit comes with the spindle, half a pound of roving and instructions.  I'm sure I'll need more than what they included in this box (I'm very open to suggestions:  books, DVDs, websites, teachers, where to buy fleece here...) but I'm sure it's enough to get me started.  The rovings are sooo soft.  I haven't tried it yet because I've been trying to get all my work knitting done first, as well as a baby hat pattern I'm writing (more on these coming soon also!).

If you are in the NYC area, I highly suggest stopping by.  Kat is running the store until the end of the month.  When Rebecca gets back early in August, she's going to start packing for her move overseas so get there quick!  Also, with yarn being 40%, do you really expect it to be there much longer?  Hurry up and get there!!
