I had to take my daughter and her friends to Value Village for Halloween costume shopping. They're of an age where they can do this sort of thing some-what independently, so I headed to FabricLand at the other end of this oddly planned strip mall.
I was looking for reflective thread to carry along with yarn. They had wide 3M fabric backed ribbon, so I got a metre ($10.50/m!!) and I'm going to try slicing it down with my rotary cutter. I don't actually have to carry it with the yarn while knitting, but I can duplicate stitch or just thread it through. I could duplicate stitch a person's initials! Or "Look!" or "Stop!" etc! The cutting lady told me they had the Red Heart Reflective yarn though. They changed the store around and I thought they weren't carrying yarn anymore. It was on the wall I rarely go to. They had the safety orange, but it's $7.99! I paid $1.99/ball for the clearout stuff at Michaels but they had no orange. I got ONE ball, LOL.
Today, I've been Googling, trying to see if there is a source for carry along reflective thread. I have a couple leads, and I hope something works out!
Yarn In: 100gr + 7320gr = 7420gr
Yarn Out: 3135gr
Balance: 4285gr more brought IN than out
Cost: $385.45/275 days = $1.40/day
