I guess it's autumn since I got this weird urge to get some new stash! I'm like a squirrel hiding nuts for the winter. Only difference is that I don't hide nuts, I am nuts! :D No, I meant I hide knitting yarns, cross stitch charts and other nice things. A Finnish yarn maker Novita released a new yarn called Puro (creek). It's 100% wool and looks a bit like Noro yarns. I bought some and the colours is called kanervikko(heather field). I also bought one ball of a yarn called Marjaretki (trip to pick berries) and the colour is called lingonberry. I saw Regia's hand-dye Effect sockyarn in some blogs and couldn't resist the temtation, they are so beautiful!
As if those were not enough our local fabric shop is moving and is selling all their stock with discount prices so I bought some... of course! They also had a basket full of fabric pieces and for the price of 1,50€ you can fill a little plastic bag as full as you can and I think I almost made a new record since I got quite a lot in the little bag. :) Those pieces are great for finishing and also for sewing small bags.
On it's way at the moment is Little House Needleworks' lovely chart "Pumpkins 4 sale" and the threads for it. After that no more new stash! I just don't have room anymore! :D
Maybe all this is done by my subconciouss telling me to stash now when I can since we just heard at work that there will be some cutbacks after September. There will be temporary or final lay-offs. It wasn't a big surprise so I'm not totally shocked. I just hope I still have my job after all that hassle.
