I popped into Value Village today on the off chance that they would have some awesome yarns like last time I was there, but someone must have come in before me because the selection was pretty sad.
I did, however, get a ball of this nubby purple/lilac ball for $1.99 and a 4 pack of baby yarn, 2 skeins in white and 2 skeins in yellow for $1.99 (that worked out to 50 cents a skein!), they are 50 grams each. Not sure how much the big ball weighs, maybe 100 grams?
I plan on learning to knit baby slippers, and I can whip up a baby hat in about 2 hours, I plan to donate them to CHEO.
