Holiday yarn sales are very dangerous ...

Actually I emerged relatively unscathed, with 7 350 metre skeins of this luscious 80% merino wool/20% tussah silk in a rich, slightly variegated teal (colour is darker/richer than in the photos, but very bright sun, doubled by reflecting off snow, is overlighting my photoshoot zone). 2450 metres sounds like a ton of yarn, I know, but this stuff is thin enough to knit socks from and I wanted a sweater's worth of it.

But for now, back to the afghan (25", so soon will be at the end of third ball of yarn and starting fourth)
