Stash enhancements

Remember how I remarked a month or two ago that the stash was getting a little lean....?

Well Mom put paid to that. She and Dad have been doing a bit of renovating, and in the process, she decided it was time to downsize her own stash...

So Sunday, I came home with enough yarn for several sweaters, including,
17 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed in this lovely deep, dark blue. This is destined to become a sweater for Dave, once I can find a suitable pattern.
14 balls of GGH Wollywasch - a superwash merino in a sweet, warm grey. (Luckily Mom and I have a very similar taste in colours.) There are several patterns in my queue this would work for.
20 balls of Jo Sharp Desert Garden cotton - a nice natural white that will make an excellent pajama sweater I think!
Then there was a huge cone of Debbie Bliss Merino Aran in a nice sage green.... and...
...another one in a dark khaki. Each cone has about 1700 yards. At least one of these will probably become something like Arwen.

There was also a bag of random balls of Rowan All Seasons cottons...which may already be working up into an afghan......

Now, I just need to win the lottery so I have more time to knit this all up!

I've always loved Arwen and those are so the perfect colors.
