So the first three stores I hit were a bust. Well, other than an old set of poker dice made in Britain that I found for $0.50. I wasn't sure if they would have a use but figured I would find the right person in our family to adopt them. Turns out that Rob was beyond happy when he came home and spied them.
My last stop was the Value Village. Not much in the kitchen goods and then I decided to take a peek at the wool selection. I am very glad I did. It was the balls that were perfectly wound with a ball winder that caught my eye. Must be a serious knitter to have them so nicely rolled. Although they were packaged in plastic bags I could see that the ball bands were neatly rolled and placed in the centre of each ball. Could those few visible letters mean it was Cascade yarn? You know, the good brand that I buy at the good yarn store. I decided to buy the lot for a whopping $11 which included tax.
Once I got to the car I quickly opened up the plastic to investigate. Sure enough it is Cascade 220 100% wool. I have some of this in my stash and have paid around $10 a ball. Some of the ball bands have no price but others have a price tag reading $8.95!
