More Thrifting...

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. 

Like.this.yarn.


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?

That is a beautiful color red! Whatever you make with it will be very vibrant.
