Starting the mitered square project



So I was all set to buy Sonata, becuase of the recomendations I had recieved but...my daughter and I took a drive to the not so local yarn shop, to spend my birthday money and they had cotton classic on sale. It was $3 a skien. so I bought a bunch. I wanted to use Cotton classic in the first place because I had some left overs from another project but I didn't have very much and I didn't want to spend $5-$6 a skien. Here is a picture of what I bought and what I already had. It's not a very good picture. It's very bright and sunny today.
I'm about to be very very busy winding yarn.

Edit: Tried taking a new picture in the living room still too bright.

Comments:
I'd be sitting there sorting it into color groups, then other groups, then into how I'd like squares, then into how I'd like other squares. Then I'd throw them in a big pile again and just thank heavens that I have this lovely, beautiful STACK of yarn. I cannot wait to see what you do w/ all this beauty! Thanks for sharing! -- Sally
 
good deal on the TCC! i love that yarn (though I have to say the sonata makes a good substitute in case you were wondering! different colors though)

i'm sure it will look fantastic!
 
Where did you get CC for $3?
 
Trust me there was sorting and resorting and holding lovenly.
I just finished winding it all into yarn cakes and have it piled on my desk so I can admire the pile for awhile. I also cut a little piece off each one and made myself a swatch card.
I bought the yarn at a tiny little yarn shop here in California, they don't have a website and there hours are strange, actually the owners are a little strange as well. I don't shop there much, its a good 45 minute drive, and its small. My favorite yarn shop is 45 minutes in the other direction but its a better drive and a much nicer, bigger store but they don't carry CC.
 
There are 28 skiens there in case you want to know. 27 different colors. The pattern calls for 40 skiens. I may make it smaller otherwise I'll need more yarn.
 
$3 each? Such a great deal!
