The Great Yarn Haul

The Yarn Haul

I had a great time thrift shopping this weekend! This is the result of 4 stores, 8 baggies and under $10! Of course none of these were packaged together, so I had the thrill of the hunt. One ball of that and one of this in each bag, it was fun!

I got 2 skeins of "vintage" worsted wool from Woolworths, two balls of Gedifra Barocco, 3 skeins of Pinguin Sport, a huge ball of white mohair, 2 balls of Moda Dea Dream in blue and 2 in brown, 3 skeins of Jaeger Celtic Spun Shetland, 2 skeins of Columbia Minerva fingering weight wool, a ball of Crystal Palace Fling in white, a skein of Moda Dea Tutu, 3 balls of Sugar & Cream cotton, a skein of unidentified Moda Dea, a huge cone of Denys Brunton Magicolour knitting machine yarn, a small ball of dark soft mohair, a skein of navy blue merino, a small skein of red wool and small ball of Lamb's Pride maroon, a ball of Stacy Charles Cancun and assorted skeins of acrylic.

Wooo. Isn't this pretty?

Oh, and this is a new project…

Pink Sheep Stitchmarkers

I spent the other part of my weekend making bunches of these. They're in my Etsy store.
