When you visit the thrift store on a day when orange tag items are 50% off?
You get approximately 1100 yards of laceweight Cashmere/Silk yarn!!!
Okay, actually you get a woman's sweater for $2.25 but with just a little work and a stiff neck and wrists for the effort - LOL - if you are lucky and the seams are right, you get some yardage of nice yarn! This mass of shimmery pink gloss has been washed and is drying, so it doesn't look quite so much like pink noodles. I still have the sleeves to work on, which should yield more yarn.
Now, wouldn't you call that lucky?
