WIP Wednesday: New Yarn!

I basically have the same ol WIPs as last week: fox hat, green hat, snowball buddies. Not too exciting, amiright?! Instead, today I'll be showcasing some of the exciting yarns that have recently showed up on my doorstep.
First, two skeins of Xanadu cashmere yarn arrived, and I plan on knitting the Snowflake Cowl pattern by Julie of the Knitted Bliss blog. Hooray for colorwork!
Then, a HUGE box of yarns from Ancient Arts Yarn arrived - too many bases to list here! There are skeins to match each of my cats from their Meow Collection; a squishy skein of the new bulky weight yarn, Big Squeeze; and even a sample skein of a soon-to-be-out yarn which contains recycled fibers. It's quite the motivation to finish my holiday gift knitting and crochet projects.
I also neglected to share this amazing project kit here, though I feel a little bad doing so at this late date - it's completely sold out! I was fortunate to snag a limited-edition Odyssey Cowl Kit from Bijou Basin Ranch, which includes all of this cool stuff, including Tibetan Dream sock yarn dyed my Miss Babs and my first-ever pair of Signature Needles. It's pretty awesome, and I am looking forward to knitting the Odyssey Cowl by Laura Chau once I finish my holiday gift projects.

The list grows ever longer!
