Had to do some thrift store running around with Meg to look for costume parts, and of course, I check the yarns! Value Village had quite a few cones of yarn, including some nice creamy colour, slightly fuzzy. But no label. So I passed it by! I'm so proud of myself, LOL. However, they did have this bag of ruffle/novelty yarns:
259 grams, for $2.99 + 0.39 tax....$3.38! Usually this yarn is sold in 100gr balls, so I'll have to check each ball before I start a project. But with the way I've been doing it on the knitting machine, I can stretch it out further than the HK patterns.
Also, while googling around this weekend, I came across a webpage with instructions on how to make your own novelty ruffly yarn on the knitting machine! I might give it a try, but using the ribber. Otherwise, you will have a very curly edge on the "yarn". It's also going to be more dense than the mesh style ribbon yarns. But it will be very unique!
Yarn In: 17 482 + 259gr = 17 741gr
Yarn Out: 13 501gr
Balance: 4240gr more brought IN than out
Cost: $416.82 + $3.38 = $420.20/$1.43 per day
I do have a few completed items to show next week!
