Getting some last minute yarn purchases in

I am trying not to buy much yarn this year so that I can stash bust, but I had to purchase the skeins below.

My local yarn shop got Madelinetosh in vintage and I had to purchase this yarn in grey garden and fig.  I want to use it to make mitts, hat and a cowl.

I love how the grey garden knits up, so I had to buy it in the dk weight too.

And of course in a fingering weight yarn.  So, I got the tosh sock in the same color.

Green is one of my favorite colors.

I had some Cakewalk Footsie yarn on order prior to Christmas and it came.  I got the colors edisto and chalkboard.

Then, I couldn’t resist some Numma Numma the usual in the House Red and Gumbo n Greens.

I can’t say that I won’t buy any yarn in 2013, but I will try to limit my purchases and shop from my stash.
