Yarn and Dress Fast Broken...Satisfying splurges!

I purchased the Sweet Shoppe Dress from Anthro as a backup wedding dress (in case it gets too darn hot) AND I went to the Arcadia Knitting makeover sale.  It was quite a haul and a satisfying one knowing that I have been soooooo good this year and both of these purchases were very much needed and appreciated.

For $138 bucks I acquired:
Ashford Hand Carders (Squeal!)
Lace Blocking Wires (UBER-Squeal!)
About 8-10oz of lovely Celadon colored wool roving.  yum.
Bearfoot Mountain Colors Sock yarn in Indian Paintbrush (deep red)
Two Skeins of Cascade Alpaca Lace in a mossy green
Two Skeins Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Happy Stripe (teal and yellow)
Brittany DPNs in sz 1
Addi Turbo sz 17/24"
Two back issues of Spinoff and Piecework
Shannon Okey's Spin to Knit book
And a couple of display items to use for my Copious Spare Time booth and my wedding!

It was a very good yarn day.  And now the yarn diet begins again.  Next splurge is a skein or two of  souvenir yarn in New Orleans maybe and then YarnCon in the fall.
