Stretching a Buck

Several weeks ago, I stopped by the local Goodwill store. (After that awful lunch at the same strip mall, I deserved a treat.)

I went there specifically to laugh at the assortment of tee-shirts (always a good chuckle, though I had no plans to buy) and to see if by chance, there was any yarn.

Well, if you've read previous posts, you already know that I found a bit of yarn and bought every last scrap including a bag of 4 balls for the unbelievable price of (say it with me) 97 cents (plus tax).

Here's what that Quarter A Ball stuff looks like.

Friends, acquaintances, family all know that I Am Not Fond Of Pink. Truly not. This color is called "coral." That makes it All Better. (Truthfully, it was the price, pure and simple!)

It's a little heavier than standard worsted weight, so the first time I cast on (for a baby dress), I got 2 balls in and realized This Isn't Working and I frogged it.

Then I started another baby dress, and though I'm still not super crazy about the fabric, it's better than the first attempt.

And now, 3 balls in, I think it's here to stay.

Glamor[?] shot of the WIP, nearing completion. Just 4 more rounds and a stretchy (EZ sewn) bind off to go.

Watch for the real glamor shot tomorrow or on the weekend. It'll be worth the wait, I promise.

And in other news: It freakin' snowed today. Hey, Mother Nature, get yourself a good calendar!
