Yes, I spelled "confession" right this time :)
The school board and police services are having a cold weather clothing drive for northern First Nations communities. I don't have a lot that I can donate in the way of winter boots or snowpants, but I do have a lot of yarn to make hats! Or so I thought! After about 5 hats, I was getting worried! The pattern I'm using is a doubled hat, and it uses a lot of yarn, up to 160gr for a man's hat! I wanted to get the kids involved too, so we went to Zeller's, where they just happened to be having a sale on Bernat Super Value and TLC Essentials. Buy One, Get One 1/2 off. We picked out 8 skeins, but I found out when we got home that one of the ones Hugh picked--Bernat Camouflage--was not on sale, which meant that one of the other yarns could not be half price. Oh well!
Bernat Camouflage 142gr $6.49
Super Value Wild Flowers 142gr $5.39
Super Value Super Pink 197gr $6.49
TLC Dark Brown 170gr $3.24
Super Value Damson 197gr $6.49
Super Value Lotus 142gr $3.24
Super Value Luxury Ombre 142gr $6.49
TLC Surf n Turf 127gr $3.24
Total +1259gr $46.41 (inc 13% tax)
Year Total In +1917gr $77.19
Year Total Out -1246gr
Total Surplus +671gr yarn in
However, I have over 1200gr of hats and scarves for donation that won't be totalled up until Sunday night. Although the yarn in got a huge boost last night from a donation from a friend of my mother in law. Wish I could have gotten it last weekend instead of buying more yarn, but it was fun teaching the kids how to use the machines. So far, I'm averaging spending about $2.50 per day on yarn. I expect that to go down though!
