Finally! A Decent Thrift Store Find

No pictures tonight, but I could not go another day without telling you that I finally made a decent yarn haul at a thrift store! I found a bag (about zip lock gallon size) crammed full of vintage mohair yarn!! I only paid $3 for it. There were also some very small amounts of angora yarn, probably enough to make a scarf for some very fortunate stuffed animal. Hmmm....maybe if I knit Bobby Bear, I can give him a mohair scarf?

We made it down to Wilde Fiber to see Tom and Jennifer. They have some gorgeous new yarn since I last visited in June. I scored four skeins of lovely Lorna's Laces for socks for me and daughter.

Tomorrow starts my three week vacation from work. This is not a vacation to go any place, but an "all about me" time. My boss felt I needed a rest after all the hard work I've put in this year, and I must say I agree! I hope to do a lot of spinning and knitting, maybe some hanging out at the LYS, and perhaps a bit of canning, baking, and cooking lovely meals for the family. I like to cook, so that is not a chore to me. I also want to start riding my bike again.

I'll do my best to get photos up within the next few days so that you can see my great yarn scores!
