Weekend stash acquisition

I have been knitting this weekend, but just pinwheels, as before, so I won't update you. I have now completed eight, thus cutting 10 years off my projected finishing time from last week.

We went to John Arbon's mill open day this weekend. I intended to possibly buy some black 4-ply for a jumper but then wasn't sure about the twist compared to the yarn I wanted to match it with. So, instead, I raided the seconds bin and came away with this little lot -

A couple of months ago I came across a Wonder Woman jumper knitted by somebody on Ravelry and I was so taken with it I have decided to attempt to knit my own. The seconds bin provided almost everything I needed; I picked up one skein of natural that was full price but the rest was less than half what the usual cost is. Very pleased with my little haul. I will add it to the every-growing list of planned projects.
