I’m Just A Knitter Who Can’t Say No

Over the weekend we went to the larger local thrift store. The husband, who is very hard on clothes particularly work clothes, needed a couple of pair of dress pants that were cheap. While he picked out what he wanted I wandered the store and found some yarn! I can’t say no to cheap vintage thrift store yarn. It’s worse if it’s fingering weight. I found two packages each containing 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn. The pink is 400 yards of nylamb by brunswick worsted mills which is 80% super wash extra fine wool and 20% nylon. I have a vintage sock pattern around here somewhere that would be perfect for this yarn! I plan to cast on, eventually. The black is Hjerte twist which is 60% cotton and 40% acrylic (I can’t find this on ravelry). I have no idea what I’ll do with it but I couldn’t just leave it behind. Now they are going into the freezer for a few days to be sure that yarn was the only thing I brought home.
