Thanks, my friends! You guys are always great at encouraging my feeble attempts.
I'm especially proud of finding that yarn for just $2.00 total. I love to search eBay for "knitting kits". I'll find great deals, because lots of people don't like the kit. They just aren't thinking about all that yarn! I mean, you don't have to make what the kit designates. You can make anything you want!
This is 17 ounces of 100% wool, and I got it for 2 bucks. You can't beat that. Well, I guess you could if you had a sheep and sheared it yourself.
