The Best Garage Sale EVER!!

What's better than 50% off specialty yarns? 75% off specialty yarns!

And what's better than 75% off specialty yarns? 90% OFF SPECIALTY YARNS!!!

Before you tell me that I don't even knit, let me just tell you that I've found myself a knitting mentor and I am just about to get started. Besides, even if I never knitted a day in my life, I know I could make some moolah on this sweet deal! (Helloooo, Ebay.)

I stopped by a garage sale today (well, okay - I stopped by about a hundred garage sales today) and found several amazingly beautiful scarves and shawls. I bought a few and went on my way. But this afternoon I found myself wishing I had purchased more of them. I managed to find my way back around 4pm and as I arrived they were pulling our TUBS and TUBS of yarn. I was told that a family member who had owned a knitting shop had retired and that all of her yarns were being sold for 10 cents on the dollar. (Retail stickers still attached.)

I. WAS. STOKED.

So I sat and looked through pile after pile for at least an hour until I finally decided I certainly had more than enough beautiful yarn! I can't wait to learn how to make hats and blankets and newborn cocoons and scarves and wraps and......well, let me just show you some pictures. I have multiples of everything I bought, but I just put one of each in this basket to show off the beauty of them all. :)

There is GOBS more of this stuff and I took the phone number of the people who sold it to me, so if you're a knitter (or a crocheter) and are interested in purchasing some gorgeous yarn at an awesome price, let me know and I'll hook you up. :) I hear it's going to be on Ebay soon.

Also...quick note on the studio:

My husband is touching up the last coat of paint right now. I went to the hardware store today (finally!) and got my supplies for hanging my backdrops, etc., so assuming everything works out as planned, we should be able to put those up tomorrow and I will post pictures of the new COMPLETE studio! :)

My hubby would kill me if I bought anymore yarn or fabric since I have a TON of both, I just wanted to let you know I learned how to knit with knitting looms! They make it super easy and quick!
