I gave in to nearly every yarn-buying impulse over the past month so I'd have some Christmas surprises. I didn't remember most of what I bought, so there were surprises.
Behind it is Yorkshire Skies from Lorna's Laces. The final season of Downton Abbey is about to begin, so I had to have a(nother) Downton-themed yarn.
The dark yarn at the left edge is Noro Shiraito, a total indulgence. It's 45% cashmere, 45% angora, 10% wool. I'm about to make a hat out of it.
The bright colors after it are both from Mad Color Fiber Arts. There's a Monty Python club starting next month and yes, I signed up for it.
The next two colors are from gnarledpaw. All of the light colors in the picture are darker in real life. The darker blue looks like it came from an impressionist painting and is called Painted Sky
The last two are Wizard of Oz-themed yarns from A Hundred Ravens. The washed-out one is actually a lovely almost dusty pink called Glinda. The one next to it is The Wizard.
