Stash Addition: Chilean Yarn from Alaska

My daughter took a cruise to Alaska last month and to thank me for cat sitting, she brought back yarn that she found in Haines, Alaska at Dalton City Yarn Emporium. The yarn is actually from Chile; the shop doesn't carry any locally-made yarns, unfortunately.

The lavender and tan (2 skeins) are for me, and she bought 2 skeins of the red and tan for herself hoping that I'll make something for her from it. She doesn't knit or crochet so I'm her main source of handmade apparel. I'll probably make her a scarf, but with 440 yards of each color, there will most likely be leftovers that will be added to my stash. It seems the more stash I use up, the more it seems to grow...
