Birthday Haul

My mom, who apparently loves me, gave me money for my birthday (coming up Tuesday) and I went to the yarn shop in Fredericksburg.

Here's my haul:
I really like the looks of this book. The hank of yarn next to it is 1300 yards of merino lace weight which is enough for almost every project in the book. I just need to find my size 9 40 inch circulars.

The color isn't quite right... but close on these. Dark blue with light blue flecks. I'm going to make Ken a pair of socks. The large double-pointed needles are for sweater sleeves and such... but I am also going to make small knitted baskets for gifts and in some cases the yarn is heavy enough I need larger needles.
