Had to visit Value Village to shop for my husband's birthday. Had to just "check out" the yarn section. Only two bags of yarn came home with me, but they sure do add up! As well, I found a sweater to unravel.
I lucked out with this sweater. No weird collars, no button bands, no pockets, just as simple as it could be. What was surprising though was that there were still knots in the yarn; I would have figured they'd be using cone yarn. The cowl collar was a little odd...about two rows after the cast on there was a knot. In the cowl itself, there were probably 4 knots. For $7.99 and I bit of work, I think 548gr is a great deal!
See, it didn't look like a whole lot, but it's 1245gr!! And since my finished total is only 1672 for the YEAR....I have knit up more than that, but it's not quite finished yet. But we're talking a few hundred grams, not a few thousand, LOL.
Yarn In: 5192gr + 1245gr = 6437gr
Yarn Out: 1672gr
Balance: 4765gr more brought IN than out!
Costs: $15.78 + $157.97 = $173.75/105 days = $1.65/day
