Zibibbo, you're going to hate me



Friday we went to Goodwill because I was low on reading material. I know, there are public libraries in Palm Beach County, but my father isn't sure if he has a card or not, and the books at Goodwill were 5 for a dollar... B was walking around and when I caught up to him we found two big sacks of yarn, one marked $9.79 and one marked $4. Grabbed them both.

Oh, my.



A few part acrylics in the bunch, but most of it--wow. Cottons. Linen. Metallics. Mohair. Wool. Name brand yarn--Berroco, Stahl, Anny Blatt. Small yarn producers. I know this was someone's stash, and for some reason she had to stop knitting. (Arthritis? Blindness? Death? This is West Palm...)

Whoever you are, Unknown Knitter, thank you--your stash will be well knit.

And Zibibbo--eat your heart out!
