My stash from Iceland

So we returned last weekend and I came back with 17 skeins of yarn! All the Lopi brand - 10 of the Alafoss (somewhat bulky) and 7 of the light. And all for under $50!!

Still here and alive

We didn't burn, thank god. Thank you for all the kind posts about our welfare. My wife was moved to tears.

Really, Thanks you so much!

I typically hand-wind my balls and pull them from the outside.

Scrap Top Down Raglan

After finishing my pinwheel blanket, I had (have) so much yarn left over in this color family that was already hacked and used that I can't do much else with it but freeform or random striped knitting

BSJ disappointment.

I have just finished my second BSJ and I am really disappointed. The first one I made looked really great, so I was excited to make another, but this looks like something the cat dragged in.
