P2P Loot

Lulu Yarn's Marinella from Full Thread Ahead in Los Altos for the one-skein project, Roman Holiday. 60% sea cell, 40% silk.

 

 Blue Sky Alpacas' alpaca and silk blend (50% alpaca, 50% silk) from Yarn Paper Scissors in Burlingame, for their one-skein project, Cabled Headband. It came in this extra cute pink triangle shopping bag.

 

 5 skeins of Noro Transition from Creative Hands in Belmont. A gorgeous blend of 55% Wool, 10% Silk, 7% Cashmere, 7% Angora, 7% Alpaca, 7% Camel, and 7% Kid Mohair. 100g skein, 132 yards. On sale for $5.99 per skein. I grabbed all that's left of this colorway.

 

2 skeins of Noro Iro from Creative Hands. 75% Wool, 25% Silk. 100g skein, 132 yards. Also on sale for $5.99 per skein and I got all the Iro on the shelf, luckily they are the same color and same dyelot.

 

 With gas and food, my expense for P2P probably topped off at $200. Not too bad for an extended weekend of fun.

You are so very lucky! Noro is one of my favorite yarn brands--I'm amazed you found it at such a great price. I can't wait to see what you make from it.

Pretty! I'm loving the bottom one especially.
