I got an email from Holy Threads (local yarn store that closed last month) announcing they were having a garage sale of their remaining items. Woot Woot!
I hauled down there as soon as I could (not soon enough perhaps; it started at 9 am and I didn't get there till 2). What was left? Patterns, lots of patterns. I bought tons of them, plus a couple of sets of buttons (some wood ones that will be perfect for Aran type sweaters and a set of adorable pale green buttons with little yellow chickens on them), a Circular Solution Port a Pocket (for carrying a little project in, perfect for socks. I paid $2.00 for it! I just bought one a couple of weeks ago for around 15...), plus 9 'cakes' of White Buffalo unspun yarn in a color I'll call Tobacco. Not the most gorgeous color, but they were only 2 bucks each so how could I turn them down.
No, I didn't get anything as gorgeous as the yarn in the picture, sadly. But still came away with a box o stuff that they had to carry to my car.
