Stash Enhancement Saturday

My yarns from gnarledpaw arrived this week.

This is Other Eden:

This is Dark Landscape:

I've decided to do Tour de Sock this year.  There's zero chance of me winning anything even though I knit fairly quickly (the Finns knit at the speed of light).  I'm doing it to donate to Doctors Without Borders and as a stashbusting exercise.  Signups start tomorrow. 

The part about it being stashbusting might be a lie.  The many fine yarn companies that sponsor the TdS supply discount codes to the participants.  Discount is a magic word.  You know how they say that if you eat broken cookies, the calories don't count?  (When they break, the calories all fall out.)  It's like that with a yarn diet.  If you buy yarn with a discount, you aren't going off of your yarn diet.   I got the yarns pictured with a discount, so my yarn diet continues.

At least until the discount codes start appearing.
