New yarn from Still River Mill

To quote Fibreandwonder, I HAS A YARN!

I got home tonight to see three boxes waiting for me. Inside the boxes were bags and bags of beautiful colors, and then two gorgeous deep colored rugs. I took some photos, but the flash made the yarn so shiny that I ended up needing to take a duller, no-flash photo to be sure I had the colors something near accurately represented. They are quite nifty, though...

Omg! Simply Gorgeous. I would need to be a much less incompetent knitter or crocheter in order to do justice to such beautiful yarn. But I still want to get some as a birthday gift. So I will call. Cheers!

I'd like to potentially take a couple of those off your hands, if they're not already spoken for. Would you be willing to bring them when we see each other?

Sure! What color(s) do you want?

I'd like to see in person the green, purple and the burgundy.
