Bearing gifts

Well my parents and my in-laws went to Ireland for two weeks, and may have dropped a few "subtle hints"   of my  NEED for homemade irish wool...hehe
Well they delivered let me tell you!!!

Check out these beautiful skeins. I just love love love these colors I can't even pick out my favorite one..
But I did pick out a few patterns that I want to turn this yarn into...
I also got a shawl from my in-laws and it's just the prottiest green 

Isn't this poncho so beautiful, it's one of my favorite shades of green....actually I think I love all shades of 
The kids also got beautiful wool sweaters...well actually Annabelle's is cotton but they were all made right on Aran Island special is that!!!

I really need to go to Ireland in my lifetime. The pictures they took were just breath taking...of course they were it's an Island covered in my favorite color!!! For now I will have to just enjoy pictures and my glorious wool.
