Grin & Bear it!
What do you do when a "muggle" cleans out her mother's things and gives you this?
Her mother passed away over a year ago, she's just now gotten to the point of being able to approach the task of going through her things. (not something I want to even think about) She sees me knit every week at our Weight Watchers meeting...and thought of me when she found this. I graciously accepted, only DD had the funny look on her face. (does she know me that well?)
Once I dug to the bottom of the bag I found that the Unger Le Tweed was bought at the LYS I used to work at, at about the same time as when I worked there...do you think I could have sold her this yarn? Wouldn't that be weird?!
I think it would only be right to find "the perfect" pattern and make her a sweater out of it. As for the Sayelle...I can't touch it, much less knit with it. I'll donate it to a nursing home or other charity. (yes, I'm a wine snob and a yarn snob!)
Check out the price tag...
How long ago what this purchased?? If you follow the link, you'll see that Herrschner's no longer offers it but their last price was $.97!!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
