Thrift Shop Finds & Answers

Went to the Thrift Shop the other day and found some yarn for my double knit blanket.

99 cents!



Not sure what brand the blue one on the left is but there were 4 balls of it.
I'm thinking little sweater.


And for $1.99 - I could not pass up this book.



Now for some answers to some comments. Figured I'd answer in a post - much easier!

Lizzie asks what I do in my spare time - Oh, bake, watch tv, weed, trim trees, shop, web surf...
Today we are going to trim another of our backyard trees. I'll try and take pics.

Kathy asked if I had a pattern for my earflap hat - no I did not take notes - just knit until it looked good.... I'll try and make another one soon.


And what about all those WIPs I showed you?

Well the books have been read - I'm on to new ones now.

The Midnight Club by James Patterson
and
Deadly Decisions by Kathy Reichs

Crocheting around 2 panels of the Bond/ISM blanket.

and some reason I dug out an old favorite WIP and trying to finish it.

I have 6 more rows to go!

Hint - It is RED, WHITE & BLUE
