One of these things is not like the other...

1) 12% angora, 55% silk, 30% nylon, 3% lamb’s wool
2) 100% angora
3) 100% merino wool
4) 25% angora, 75% lamb’s wool

I went shopping yesterday. I bought A LOT. But seriously, when’s the last time you bought $100 worth of merino for $10 and a cream-coloured silk/nylon/angora blend for $4?

  2. This was totally the biggest lot I’ve ever found, the pickins over here in Kingston are quite slim. The only reason I hauled such a stash is that they were just opening a new store and I think they grab the best stuff for the opening week so people keep coming back.

  6. And here I was avoiding Value Village ’cause of the crowds! I hate crowds. But what a deal. Maybe I can put up with it. I’m young, I’m brave. That’s what I shall do!

  7. [...] In knitting news, I’m a few inches down the leg of my second Jaywalker, and I’m starting a pair of Knucks for my cousin. They’re from the red merino sweater I bought in this post. The yarn’s a bit tweedy; I love how warm and stretchy it is! This yarn may become a pair of socks; I’m already eyeing Baudelaire. [...]

  8. [...] I don’t know what it is about the sudden explosion in unwanted angora sweaters. I will assume it’s because of climate change. Al Gore was right! [...]
