So, in case you didn't know, I am vlogging everyday now. Here is my channel. Yes. This is obviously my new obsession. That and THRIFTING of course!!!
Speaking of thrifting (and really, when am I NOT speaking of thrifting these days?), I went today. I said I was only going to go once or twice a month. But honestly, I really don't think that is reasonable. Doing that, I am seriously going to miss out on some good stuff.
This yarn is Klaus Koch Kollektion. Don't let the triple K's throw you off. This is 100% EGYPTIAN COTTON!!!! And I got it for (drum roll, please).... $3.50! for 7 skeins! That is, yes 50 cents per skein!
This is some luxury yarn, I tell ya. I am usually a Hobby Lobby "I love this yarn" type of girl. (I DO hate Red Heart, though). I am not into spending more than $5 for a skein. And even that is too much for these small pockets. So, when I saw a bag of this stuff for $3.50 - well, you can imagine the ruckus I made in the store. I am sure they are used to me by now, though.
Anyway, I actually didn't know what I was getting (even though I knew it was good stuff) because the packaging is in another language. So, when I got home, I googled the name and realized that each skein goes for $12.50!!! That is 96% off!!!!
And here I am talking about it...
My mom asked me a great question: "What are you going to make with that yarn?". And I really can't promise anything. But I think I may make this sweater for Anaya:
I just rediscovered this book. My aunt gave it to me a couple of years ago. It is a knitting and crochet book, published in 1981, which makes it...vintage. LOL. And she got it THRIFTING!!! I try not to think of all of the stuff I have missed out on not thrifting until now. I could just kick myself.
Anyway, this book has some AMAZING patterns I can't wait to try out. Yay!
What are you making these days?
