New Stash Acquistion

I'm the In Search Of/Destash group on Ravelry. I decided to go through my yarn stash to see what I just didn't love any more and trade it for other yarn I do love. Here are the newest members of the Stash family.

This is Yarn Pirate Killer Bees. I loved this yarn at first and then decided to trade it (again) for something else. Then Sweet Peas 1 and 2 saw it and now they want socks made from this. Cool.

(Sorry for the blurry picture) This is Cherry Tree Hill (I think). The person I trade with lives locally. I really like this as it has a purple-y tone to the dark parts.

This is from one of the sock clubs I'm in this year. It is from the Harmony semi-solid yarn club from Zen Yarn Garden. It is the Down by the Bay colorway. It is very green/blue/greyish and hard to capture on the camera. Very soft. It is merino, bamboo and nylon. I can't wait to see how it knits up.

I've been DYING to get my hands on some Dream in Color Smooshy and I have some now! This is Cocoa Kisses. It looks brown, but in real life, there are variations from brown to dark grey but staying toward the brown family. Very lovely and VERY soft and smooshy. ;)

More to come as soon as my Socks That Rock Club yarn arrives in the next few days!

I just love Ravelry. Casey is a genius!

I don't troll the Destash forum because I fear what it would do to me. I do like to put stuff on own trade list and have had a number of people contact me to trade for my trade stash. I've got an interesting trade going on right now with a woman in Germany. The yarns she has are AMAZING!

You've got some nice yarns to work with here. I can't wait to see what you choose to make. I've cast on with the ZYG yarn. I hope to have a pic posted tomorrow.
