Stashy goodness

I realized when I was writing the post showing off my Frederick yarns that I'd neglected to display some stash accumulation of the past few months. (The astute playing along at home will note that I obtain far more yarn than I will ever knit. I am strangely okay with this.)

First, and by far most important, a pretty from Nyx:

This is 100% kid mohair in a laceweight. I brightened up the picture a bit, but I couldn't get the exact hue of the green. It's a little warmer than this--reminds me of seafoam. Must find something sea-like to knit with it. She also sent beads and beautiful stitch markers, currently in use on my Irtfa'a. Yay Nyx!

Then there are these, my first ever order from the Loopy Ewe:

This is Dream in Color Smooshy (100% merino) in "November Muse." I've heard very good things about DIC, but I've never had the opportunity to knit with it.

And this is Schoppel-Wolle's Zauberball in "Cranberries." (Click through for a picture of the yarn as it knits up--seriously cool.) I have another Zauberball in my stash, but I haven't knit with it yet. I really should . . .

These are both efforts to get some more guy-friendly colors into my yarn stash. They're both colors I'd happily wear, of course, but it never hurts to have sock yarns that men won't turn up their picky noses at.

Otherwise, I'm trudging along on both the cross-stitch and Irtfa'a, which is actually considerably more advanced than that picture shows. I should get more recent ones . . .

The kid mohair grabs me the most and says, Go knit something! Right now!
