Yarn Feast, Yarn Diet

Yarn Feast
Originally uploaded by HMOriginals
I went a little crazy with yarn purchases in early February Not ocunting four or so skeins I picked up locally and which aren't pictured here, I bought:
22 skeins of Patons Wool in 12 shades
1 skein of Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky in a lovely camel
1 skein of Tahki Bunny in a lovely green
8 skeins of Reynolds Bilzzard (my fave for neck warmers) in 6 colors
12 skeins each of Cleckheaton Country Silk 8 ply in chocolate brown and white
a bag (10 skeins) of Wisdom Poems
All were at great sale prices as low as $3 per skein. How could I pass them up?
if you go to my Flickr page linked to the photo, you can see an "annotated version" with notes about the yarns.
Now, I definitely need to go on a yarn diet for a few months.

Sometimes I think I just collect scrapbook supplies...instead of actually using them :)
