One day, my youngest wanted to rollerblade.  She sat on the basement stairs to put them on, while I looked for all the gear.  I found a cloth tote bag, cheapy-give-away-from-politician.  Inside, was a nearly finished blue pod, in Patons "Divine".  WHAT?!

I went  to my Facebook biz page and asked if I had promised a blue pod to anyone.  No one recalled anything, but one woman responded that she'd buy it.  The same woman that bought the grey pixie bonnet a few posts back!  I quickly finished it off and got it in the mail.

Aww!  I love that yarn.  Of course, it seems to be discontinued!

I picked up some more white "mohair" at Value Village; $2.14 for 119gr.  Also picked up more of the Sirdar Snuggly for the cardi I've been machine knitting for what seems like forever.  Five balls, two of brown, three of taupe.  It's a different dye lot, and I'm not sure I'm happy with it.  I've been trying to get to a different store to check out another dye lot, but I've been so busy.  And away.  I had 45 days to return it, I think I might be past that now :(  And, where is the bill?  I'm going to guessimate, $4.99/ball (Mary Maxim's price)...250gr for $28.19.

Yarn In: 119gr + 250gr + 5493gr = 5862gr
Yarn Out:   50gr + 2605gr = 2655gr
Balance: 3207gr more brought IN than out
Cost: $30.33 + $307.72 = $338.08/227 days = $1.49/day
