My amazon wishlist
Friday, January 06, 2006
Henry was cranky today (teething) and we were bored so I decided we should take a trip to Goodwill to see if we could find anything interesting. They didn't have any yarn today, but I did find these 2 100% wool sweaters. The one on the left is a beautiful fair isle (not hand knit--imported from China or something) and the one on the right is by Eddie Bauer and it's a very soft, fine gauge 100% lambswool. I will probably make wool longies from the sleeves and use the rest for other projects (maybe some booties or some wool soakers). Or I might felt the brown one and make it into a tote for me. I also found this really cool embroidery kit (still in the package). It says it's a scandinavian picture with linen fabric and cotton yarn (made in Germany).
I also got a taggie soft book for Henry (he got a little taggie blanket from Santa and he loves it), a pair of really cute corduroy pants for me (which may need some reconstructing), and 2 dress shirts for DH.
Speaking of being frugal, I just found this blog. I like it. For me, life's all about saving money so I can spend it all on fabric and yarn, people. Heh.
That's what I call a successful treasure hunt. I can't wait to see the things you make from the sweaters.Post a Comment
