One of the moms from our home school group showed up yesterday with an imperial asston of yarn. Evidently a neighbor of hers is a recovering hoarder and was destashing a LOT of knitting stuff. The vast majority of it was grouped into projects, with all of the yarn, the buttons, and the pattern packaged together in a zippered plastic bag. There is an abundance of knitters in our group and we all pawed through it like slathering maniacs. I managed to score some pretty good stuff:
The patterns for which all of this was intended just weren’t to my taste and/or were somewhat out-dated, so I let those go to the universe and will see what trouble fun I can get into on Ravelry. I’m already thinking the Louisa Harding stuff would make a really pretty shawl.
