That teaser post a while back? Don't bust your brain trying to figure it out. That was a jumble of swatches, all done in a totally different weight/brand/color of yarn from what I'll really be using.
I did, however, purchase some yarn for "research and development" This week. Some of it won't arrive for quite a while, but that's OK. I'm thrilled to have bought it because 20% of the purchase price goes to support SHARE, a non-profit organizations that helps bereaved parents who have experienced infant loss. You can imagine how eager I was to give a hand to that cause, eh?
I bought two skeins of the sport weight version of this uber-special yarn by Three Irish Girls in their limited-edition charity colorway, "You Are My Sunshine". Um...I may have also ordered a skein of it in fingering and a coordinating skein of dark purple in fingering, but that was last week, so it doesn't count for this post about yarn bought this week, right? Right?

The other yarn I got was a couple of skeins of Mmmmalabrigo Arroyo in Coffee Toffee from faithful LYS, Cottage Yarns:

Isn't it all just GORGEOUS?
