Hmmm. I'd either buy enough cashmere to make a full size throw (not sure if $500 would cover it!) or else lots and lots of Mountain colors (Bearfoot and Merino Ribbon) and Fleece Artist (anything).

Even without the lottery...I must STRONGLY suggest you get some turbo addis. I just LOVE mine...all of them! So far...I love them the most when knitting with DB Cashmerino Aran yarn with the 8, 10 or 11 addis. Heaven!!

Yarn for that lovely alpaca throw in last minute knitted gifts (around $300) and $100 worth of cashmere from two pointy sticks, and Stillwater by Starmore.

Definately addi turbos.. what ever it takes to complete my "set"

and then with any 'leftover' mad money, I'd get all the sock yarn I could lay my hands on! (can you tell I'm a new sock-a-holic!)

I would get the addis because I have not bought any yet. Also some cashmere. If there is anything left over, I would pick up some custom-made buttons from a friend. She makes them in polymer clay or warm glass and they are gorgeous.

What a great questions. I could spend it all ina couple hours at my LYS. I'd buy some Alchemy yarn, merino/silk blend that I have had my eye on. Lobster Pot cashmere for scarves, maybe Koigu for socks and with whatever is left I'd replace any of my metal and plastic needles with wood.

That was fun!

Actually, I was given, as a retirement gift, a gift certificate of a goodly sum to a LYS. And I'm having a tough time deciding. I first thought, cashmere and koigu for several projects. But now, I'm thinking that I should have only one project in mind and use the gift certificate for that. I'm having lots of fun thinking about this!

Kipster;
Congrats on making it! And what a lovely parting gift! I would blow it on one batch to make something for yourself. That way whenevcer you use the item you will think fondly of your past cowokers and job, etc.
All the best!

Ooh...$500 guilt free money. My mind is racing with possibilities. Do I buy every lace pattern/book known to knitter-kind, and some cones of zephyr? Do I buy all the Araucania Nature Wool and Manos I can get my hands on? Oh, I could buy lovely yarn to knit sweaters and throws with. I can just see the yarn and knitting supplies in a pile all around me. Wahoo!

Hi,

I'd buy a heap of Angora and maybe some really nice wooden needles.

Also I wouldn't need 2 weeks, I could probably spend it in 2 minutes.

Knit in peace and harmony.

I'd get a Colinette something or other. Then Addi needles in every size until I ran out.

I'd head straight to Sewickley Yarns Unlimited and buy all they had in Blue Sky Alpaca. I'd make the herringbone poncho from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.and then I'd decide what else to do from there. I'd also invest in more Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn. I'd buy whatever remaining sizes of Addis that I need, and I'd be good to go.
