Stopped by the thrift store after work Thursday and picked up a crocheted hat/scarf for $3.90. I didn't buy it to wear - I bought it to re-claim the yarn. The yarn feels and looks like Sayelle brand and it is the prettiest variegation of pink and soft white (the picture doesn't really show the true colors). Both cakes of yarn each weigh 6 oz.
I was kind of feeling a little guilty when I was frogging the hat/scarf - whoever crocheted it did a very good job - and I kept thinking that it was a shame that she put all this work into something that a loved one obviously never wore and then gave away. I hope I never find anything I've crocheted in a thrift store. :)
