More more more!  
I was digging through stash and pictures last night trying to find something to contribute... I currently have, in my 'upcoming projects' box (as opposed to my 'currently in progress' box, my 'this is what I'm working on today' bags and baskets, and my 'someday I want to do something with this' box):

- 2 skeins of Bernat Eyelash (in dark purple, with which I am going to knit a funky scarf with a big jewelled belt buckle that will slide up and down the front of it - at her request).

- 1 skein of Yarn Bee "Elf Eyelasn" in green, that I am going to use for 'grass' on the bottom of a sweater I'm making for my daughter (that also has a textured bunny on it).

- 1 skien of Yarn Bee "Wild Child" in purple to make a hat to match this poncho that I made for my neice (quite happily modelling it).

- 1 skien of Patons Cha Cha in "Bunny Hop" that I got to make this scarf, but it turned out that one was enough. Here's a detail of the scarf. It's -really- soft and snuggly. I think I'll have to make one for my daughter from it, although she might end up just sleeping with it instead of wearing it...

- 4 skiens of fun fur because it was cheap and I need to knit some scarves for kids of friends for Christmas and omg I feel so cheap now. /cry

So far, the Wild Child and the Cha Cha have been my favourites to knit with because they're soft, and I can pause every few minutes and rub them on my cheek. :D I also used the Cha Cha to edge a pair of socks, but I didn't like that application of it. I haven't had the same 'matting' problem with the scarf after washing, but the sock edging matted something awful. The scarf has shed a little bit, but not nearly as badly as the fun fur did.

That Bunny Hop scarf is adorable. I bet it feels really good.

I didn't know Bernat Eyelash came in purple.

Hee, thanks. :D I always feel like I'm making such mundane stuff. Just... copious amounts of it. :D

Now I wonder if I'm lying about the Bernat Eyelash... I counted up my entire stash last night (and set aside some to donate, and catalogued my list of projects to finish, and to start, I was a busy bee!) But I was writing and watching Battlestar Galactica, and fondling yarn so mayhap I wrote it down wrong... I know it's a lovely shade of dark purple. I will check tonight.

i've been doing the same stuff lately. my knitting is SO organized. emily loves it, being a little OCD, that my stuff is catalogued, etc.

Aha, I have figured out the problem.

I have 1 skien of Bernat eyelash in eyeliner, and one skien of Patons Allure in Amethyst. I got my DH to go and look. He's scared of the yarn stash, you see, so this was a big deal. :D
