That aside, I found some yarn at home! My mom bought these when they were on sale - although 100% acrylic - how could one resist at $3.50 Canadian? They are huge! I will use it for an afghan. The sugar and cream is my sister's and pictured to show you the scale. You wouldn't believe why she bought it. It's to give an old Cabbage Patch Kid a hair transplant!
Being a bit lazy, I doubled up the strands... the afghan is already 1/3 complete. Hopefully I can post it up soon!
In the meantime, my vintage projects are up in the Pre-1997 Gallery section. Enjoy!
