Well I think I found the yarn for the February lady sweater!
Yesterday I went to the North River flea market and there was a table of bakery items and a few knitted baby sweaters and bags of yarn,
I picked up this one bag that was filled with a dark red yarn, I opened it up and smelled it, The lady look at me smiled and winked, and said "it comes for a smoke-free home dear",
I asked if she knew what it was, and she told me that it was Patons worsted and it was probably 5 years old, there's maybe 6 skeins in that bag and you can have it for 6 bucks! it looked all right to me, no bad odor, in fact it smells brand new! The colour is still vibrant, so I said what the heck, sure, why not!
I told her what I had in mind for it and she made me promise to come back and show her when I was done! I'm here every week!
When I got home and looked through the bag, I notice that she put 3 patons patterns booklets and 2 pairs of 4mm needles in there!
I started on the sweater as soon as we finished lunch and I must say "I lovin' it"
The colour doesn't show very well in this picture, the actual colour is a deeper red
So wish me well with it! So far so good!
