Last night, my dh brought me home a huge bag from Goodwill and it was filled with yarn and needles. OMG, I felt like a kid in a candy store. The needles were mostly aluminum 14" straights (which I hardly ever use), but there were 3 circular needles - a 32" #8, a 29" #6 and a 29" #5. One looks like a Boye and I have no idea what the other 2 are, but they seem ok. The yarn was mainly Wool-Ease - 12 skeins of a pretty blue color, 5 skeins of gray and 4 skeins of white and some partial skeins of red and a pretty pink-ish color. When he told me how much he paid, I almost fell off my chair.....with his discount the total was $6.52. He said "Is that good?". LOL!!! So now I'm thinking what on earth am I going to make with all this blue yarn? Any ideas?
Thanks for the ideas. I started a pair of mittens for one of my kids this weekend, using the blue wool-ease and I think I'm going to make some hats and mittens and donate them to the elementary school where my oldest son will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. I've heard that they are always in need of hats and mittens, plus they're easy to make.
I'll try to post a pic of the whole stash...I've been really busy with the holiday (we took the kids to a lake nearby for the long weekend) and I'm really kicking myself for not taking the entire week off from work, because there's so much around the house I need to do.....
OMGoodness, last year I did all of my Christmas knitting with woolease and everyone LOVED their gifts...from your basic scarves to afghans (I had been knitting since June) and they r putting in requests already...especially the guys for hats bc they wash so easily & as KK said...are very warm...altho, I can't DK, as of yet...so hers are way warmer!! Woolease is a fine yarn...sounds like u will be busy, busy!!
