Any "yarn head" living in Raleigh knows that, when you see the pink bag, you've got goodies befitting a "yarn head".

I bought a skein of Plymouth Encore Chunky to make myself some gloves to go with my Republic hat and scarf. The chill that pierced my fingers a couple of days ago while walking Smokey helped me to make the decision to make gloves.
I also got the newest issue of Vogue Knitting Magazine, one skein of Tahki Cotton Classic(my favorite mercerized cotton yarn), and one skein of this cool yarn from Crystal Palace. I bought them because I wanted to try out a design idea. Many times I will only purchase one skein of yarn when I'm swatching for a design before I commit to buying the full amount needed. Look at the texture of the Crystal Palace stuff:
