stash enhancement

I do love Eat.Sleep.Knit's surprise sales. They're not my LYS, but I love that they are dedicated to selling hand-dyed yarns, and I love the homey community feel they give online. And even though they were probably swamped during their Black Friday Surprise Sale, they still managed to send out my orders very quickly and everything arrived on Monday!

I was also lucky enough to pick up some Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Semisolid in Iris

and a couple of skeins of Dream in Color Smooshy (Blue Lagoon and Visual Purple).

I feel like a very rich woman. It's pretty amazing just how much happiness I can derive from a lap full of wool. Beautiful, luxury works of art that will provide hours of entertainment as I knit and then many more months of pleasure as I wear them. I'm incredibly grateful that something so seemingly simple can make me so happy. No matter what happens in life, beautiful yarn can always make me smile! That's riches.
