Remember, When Your Bag of Yarn Is So Heavy It Hurts Your Fingers...

...Life is good.Before I finish weaving in the ends of the Shetland Triangle, I wanted to share the fruits of my secret yarn mission. Now that I have had a chance to scope out the selection, it's safe to tell you that Three Bags Full in Vancouver has just received their last shipment of Sweet Georgia yarn.

They had a ton, but it's going quickly. I really helped out with that.

I picked up four hanks of lace weight to fuel my lace addiction. I'm hoping to use at least one to knit a yet-to-be-determined pattern from Victorian Lace Today. I totally forgot to mention that I picked up this book a week or so ago.

Left to right: Honey Fig, Blue Steel, Dragon, Cassis.

I also managed to pick up 12 hanks (enough for 6 pairs) of Superwash Sock.

Left to right: River, Sakura, Rainforest

Left to right: Blue Fig, Midnight Rain, Olivia.

These colors are far more vivid in real life than in pictures (especially on this dark and rainy day.

You certainly have an eye for color! They are gorgeous.

yum. I love the midnight rain. And the river. I'd like to play with your yarn stash.

Ooh, nice haul. I didn't realize there won't be any more Sweet Georgia.

They did have the blue! I went there after seeing the blue lace-weight here and they told me that they never had any. I felt silly arguing "the internet told me so" to someone who seemed like a manager. Now I feel better, knowing I wasn't crazy.

So you were the one who bought all the good colours. I got to 3bf just after lunch the day after they emailed me and some of the sock yarn was already sold out.
