Can one person ever have too much yarn?

I think not. :) So I'm showing off some more of my inspiration! Cookie gave me this one from String Theory. Love the name and love the yarn! In person, it looks like a verdigris finish on piece of copper. Lovely. The dyeing is just masterful.
The other yarns in this post came from Pico Accuardi Dyeworks. They have some stunning yarns, and Anne (from Knitspot) and I got some serious yarny love from them at TNNA.

I think this may be my one most favorite skein of yarn ever. I wish you could all fondle it in person. Yummmmm, I tell you!
And here's a pretty bfl - sort of between a laceweight and a fingering weight. I love the color!
And another of my favorites, if only I could capture the color properly. This one is a mohair and silk blend. Anne got one that was dyed using the same natural dyes but it looked very very different. It's amazing what they achieve by changing the measurements just a little bit.
Well, my sekrit project is blocking and is getting shipped off tomorrow. And it's on time without my staying up all night. Wooot! I am so happy about that! I've really been working on getting the scheduling under control! So far, so good. :)

Oh my lord. That String Theory yarn is beyond beautiful. What base is it and is it / will it be available to the general public to purchase?
