As I sorted through the storage area under the stairs (which has taken me much of today -ahem! No prizes for guessing it was rather a mess), I found a box containing yarn that I had completely forgotten about. At the time I packed this (in 2008), I was not really knitting with this sort of yarn, though I was clearly entranced enough to buy them.
The red/purple yarn and the blue/turquoise one on the left of the photo are silk noil. The blue/green/purple skein at the rear is rayon boucle. I'm not sure what the balls at the front are, they just look like fine wool, but I recall that I bought them to knit with the boucle in some way, as they have the same colours.
Naturally, they shall go into a box labelled "Essential Supplies".
