Yarn Bonanza!

I was too stunned, TWICE, to take photos of the entire yarn bonanza that my ol' pal Ruth brought to two of my yarny groups this past week, but I did snap a photo of a shawl that I'm crocheting with Ruth's gift.
Crocheted shawl in progress. Lorna's Laces Hand-Dyed Yarn, "Haymarket"

Ruth has been knitting off and on for most of her life. She picked it up again recently and went a bit wild at some of the yarn marketplaces at knitting conventions. It seems, every time Ruth attended Stitches West or any of the other yarn events we have in the U.S., she picked up a few skeins here and there, not really planning what she would make with those skeins. We call them "orphan" skeins. Ruth decided that it was time to clean house. We are so lucky that she decided to clean house at our knit groups!
The members of the West Hollywood Stitch 'n Bitch at the Original Farmers Market last Thursday and the Ocean Park Fiber Artists at the Coffee Bean in Santa Monica on Saturday were the lucky recipients. One of our Ocean Park members was so excited to see such a beautiful pile of yarn that she actually started to hyperventilate! Yarn can be so exhilarating. The possibilities are endless. Ruth's request, in return for the donated yarn, is that we post photos of the items we create with her yarn. 
If we are lucky enough to have Ruthie donate some more yarn to our groups, I'll try to compose myself and take a photo before we ravenously dive in! Thanks again, Ruth for your generosity!
