Stash jackpot, kind of
So I was going to the doctor with my bf, just for his annual physical, and there was a huge Goodwill next door, so we dropped in to pass a little time. I got all of this for $8.



Then I was looking on my local craigslist, and found the stash below of not only a huge assortment of needles, hooks, and accessories, but two large bins stuffed with yarn. A lot of it is old acrylic, but there are quite a few full skeins of wool, and a few other mixed materials. There's even completed, and half completed projects included. All for $20. There's also other craft items and materials at the bottom, but I'm not sure what it's for yet.

Well done! I had a couple of hauls like that (but of needles) earlier this year. It's amazing, isn't it?

Be sure to put the wool yarn, at least, into the freezer for 3 days before integrating it into the rest of your stash. You want to KILL KILL KILL any insects or eggs that may be lurking (e.g., the dreaded moth...).

Enjoy!

Oh that's gross and I didn't even consider that. Probably a little now since it's been a couple weeks. Good to know next time though.
