Once Upon a Time, Part II: There and Back again...

The Beautiful woman returned to the consignment shop...an offer was made for the remaining bags of yarn, followed by a counter offer and before one could blink the yarn was in the trunk of the womans car and headed home...The back story on this yarn...The previous owner was/is a splendid knitter but her and her husband were downsizing from their home to a condo so 3 rooms of yarn had to scale down to half a room of yarn. Turns out that this woman frequented a fancy yarn shop in Seattle with a fancy french name and had it all shipped to Minnesota...here is the completion of the circle...the beautiful woman, my mom, also shops at said fancy yarn shop in Seattle and has yarn shipped hither and yon, including Minnesota...Well Mom landed in Seattle today with two extra suitcases containing the booty for me...TWO SUITCASES FULL....Hear that *thud* That's what happened when I hit bag #24, I hit the floor and lost count....These aren't piddly amounts either. Each bag contains enough yarn for a full project! A FULL PROJECT...*thud*
I am currently on sensory overload and can't reasonably type anything more so here are some photos.....

D taking one suitcase from Mom's hotel 3 blocks to our car....please note I haven't peeked yet knowing that I would probably spread it all over the sidewalk on 1st ave downtown...



this photo appears deceiving...there is 30 plus bags of yarn in those babies!


TA-DA....stay tuned tomorrow when I'll have better light and possibly my wits about me...

The circle? The yarn started in Seattle, went to Minnesota, and was brought back to Seattle....I think it's happy to be home...I know I'm glad it is, especially since it's in my home!
