I have had so many excellent finds lately I feel I need to start my Thrifty Thursday posts again. First up, yarn! Bet you thought I was going to say Pyrex right?
I bought 3 cakes of Valley Yarns Northfield at Savers for $2.10. Retail price for 3 cakes $17.97. It’s a lovely DK weight, 70% Merino, 20% baby alpaca and 10% silk. I may have never bought it at Webs. Certainly not for charity knitting. So glad I got to try it! I knit 2 hats for $2.10 to donate to Wool-Aid. I held the yarn doubled throughout. It’s super soft and squishy. I used Clairvoyance Designs pattern One Trick Pony ( available on Ravelry) and added some texture to the top. It’s a free pattern. These are actually my 5th and 6th ponies!
At Savers they had a partial skein of Red Heart priced higher than a package of 2 cakes of this yarn. My luck! Yeah! But crazy huh?
