Some of you will know that I make frequent checks at the local thrift shop. Just after the first of the year, I had walked by, and had to stop in since I hadn't been there for over a week!
Usually, there are not many fibre-related items there, but one can never know for sure. So I looked in, and found a whole pile of stuff! I have a weakness for double-pointed needles, and circulars (it's an addiction), and they had a fistfull of them! This shop doesn't often get items like this, so I was truly lucky.
I had to take them all! I know -- I have no restaint; but these were a bargain. I had gotten some just in the past month, at $1 for a set of four. These were priced lower, and they also gave me 50% off for all Christmas items. These WERE indeed Christmas items! LOL There were a few crochet hooks, in various sizes, and since I really didn't have all these --- well, you never know when I might need some! I also found this knitting bag, with the fold-out legs. I have a few of them, but this one was well made, and quite a steal. How can I resist?!! I did leave the circs behind, but now wish I took them; I want to make up a set for a really wonderful girl at work who needs some.
Here is a pic of what I got... all for less than $10!!
Now one thing that I found really intriguing is a needle holder from a company in Montreal. See the silver tube there on the left? And it has a 6 inch ruler as well as a series of 10 holes along the side as a needle gauge -- really neat! I've never seen one like this. Can always use another fun needle holder! hahaha
There is nothing really on the needles right now. I have one sock finished and the heel left to do on the other one. For some reason, that is stalled. Maybe today.
