Michael's Haul: knit supplies

Recently, I went to Michael's craft store looking for a thicker set of knitting needles. However, when I was there surrounded by so much prettyful yarn... I just couldn't help myself! So I bought a few that I thought would work well with the needles I was getting. OK, its not THAT much yarn. But it IS SO pretty :)
As with many things, I was not really looking for a specific brand. The way I chose was by looking at the colors I liked then feeling the yarn. If I liked how it felt then it was coming with me! Haha. I think it is important to note that I am not a professional knitter. Im definitely a beginner and mostly know the basics. Its ok, we can learn as we go :)

Without further a dew, here are the items I purchased at my local Michael's store.
