Oh man! So I was in a local thrift store wandering around, and discovered they had a yarn tub. All well and good, yarn is wonderful and completes my life, but I really don't need anymore shitty acrylic right now, BUT THEN! I found a skein of what looks to be some handpainted merino that's sold locally! So much excitement! AND I found a skein of Shetland wool, plus a bit of mohair. The best thing is, all of them together were only $2.16! So yes I am very pleased with myself right now.
