This week end was Stitches west, one of the biggest knitting trade show in the US

3 days of yarn shopping!!
I found a few gems...

some "frosting worsted" in Blueberry, Licorice, Sugar
very soft yarn, superwash merino.
can't wait to make plenty of  Newborn baby blankets !!

some "Cashmerino socks" and "Cashmerino worsted", 
80% superwash merino 10% cashmere 10% nylon,
"Avery sport", 50% silk and 50% merino, all undyed ecru.
This is a yarn that I was really looking forward to buying 
and will probably end up dyeing with my own colors.

some stitch markers
they were too cute to pass on them!!
