year-end yarn sales

so i know that this may not seem very bright, but i've made a few yarn purchases.

i did end up caving and buying one skein of grey luxury dk cashmere from sarah's yarns to make shedir for spicy jesse.

there was a 25% sale on rowan calmer at richesse online and i doubt very much that i'll ever find it any cheaper. plus they had free shipping. so i ordered 10 balls to make the phyllo yoked pullover from knitting nature for my mom's birthday present, in the "blush" color from the book.

then i thought i'd better get yarn for my dad's sweater as well, since his birthday is in june. i decided to knit jarrett from rowan vintage knits. i'm using brown sheep cotton fleece in caramel that i bought for a song at sheep shed studio.

so although i am not supposed to be purchasing yarn, it was all on a can't miss such a great sale basis. and all purchases are planning ahead for well-deserved gifts, not for me.
