Thrift Store Finds









At least once a week, we head to town to the thrift store.  They set out expired baked goods and slightly over ripe produce that we pick up for our chickens.  It really helps on the winter feed budget and they love to have fresh greens and treats in the winter months.  

Of course, we always manage to wander around the store for an hour looking for any new to us treasures.  My favorite area, besides books, is the craft corner.  Most weeks, the yarn bin is full of acrylics and fun furs, but this week... well, I'm pretty sure I gasped out loud since the lady next to me looked at me funny.   Two laundry baskets full of sock yarn, and cakes of mohair, cones of undyed yarn,  Lamb's Pride chunky and sport weight, a partially completed argyle sock kit {which I won't be finishing, but it was so cute}, and a few bits of others that I thought were pretty. All for around fifty cents each. I showed some restraint with the mohair cakes and cones, {aka, I didn't buy the entire basket} because I'm not completely sure they're 100% wool and will take dye.  Experiments to ensue.

How about you?  Any great thrift store finds recently?

    1. Casting on is the opening of any knitting pattern. It is just placing the yarn and the stitches against the needle. There are many ways to cast on and for each has its individual purpose like Start with a basic, backward loop cast on, then advance to the long-tail cast on and the provisional cast on. Professionally at Dissertation Help UK, I am providing dissertation writing services as an online thesis tutor but I like knitting that's why I am watching video and blog related to it and enjoying watching it. I would recommend your video to more people. Well done. Keep sharing. Thanks!
