Changable

On Wednesday I was running early for my massage, so I popped into the Salvos. I always check to see if they have any decent yarn, and there is always a couple of sad balls from Spotlight. But I keep looking, because you never know. On Wednesday I found a cone of one hundred percent wool laceweight, from Wangarrata woollen mills. It was my favourite colour, a very light mint green. I did not buy it. Partly because I have three jumpers worth of yarn in the stash, but mainly because it was one dollar, and I only had a fifty dollar note.


I didn't buy it, but then I was sad about it, so when Leon was going down there on Thursday I asked him to pick it up for me. It turns out I was wrong about the price, it was $1.99.

As far as I can tell it's this wool , but, being on a cone I'm not even sure how much it weights. If it's heavy enough I'm going to make a long cardigan by Jojo Locatelli. If not, maybe a wedding ring shawl. I guess swatching will give me the answers I need.
