I’m uploading photos for ravelry so I thought I’d share them here – just to show (myself as much as you) that I have been doing something despite feeling lazy. Oh and I have the mother of all lucky crafty thrift scores to
brag about show you.
This yarn started as a scarf. I tried to make it into a scarf 4 times. Different stitches, different needle sizes. It refused to be a scarf. But it doesn’t seem to mind becoming a simple doll blanket. Just big enough to go in a dolls crib.
A very basic headband to keep the constant wind off my hair. I’m tired of looking like a banshee after a walk.
Burp cloths for the baby basket. The green one striped up so awesome but it is a little short, I just decided on a whim to use up the end of that ball of cotton:
My thrift score….
I found 2 balls of Inca (12 ply) in a yarn store end of line basket for $3.50 a ball (usually retails for $8) and felt rather thrifty. Until I found 15 balls for $13.50 in a thrift store. Same dye lot as the other two balls even. I’ve never had more than 2 balls of any one yarn in the same colour before so 17 really gets the creative juices flowing. I’m thinking a basketweave scarf for starters – the yarn is soooo soft. Then a cushion cover would be extra luxurious. Oh inspiration who know I’d have to pay $13.50 to find you?
