I simply couldn't wait until tomorrow to post this - I found 22 balls of this vintage Cleckheaton 12-ply (bulky) in an opshop (thrift shop) this afternoon. For 50c a ball. Wooo! I rushed to the cash register with the yarn in one hand and a funky skirt in the other. $8.50 for the lot. I realised (well after I'd left the shop) that the girl had misread the sticker on the two bags and had given them to me for 50c each. 50c each bag. That's ONE DOLLAR for 22 BALLS OF YARN!!!! The colour is duller and pinker than the above photo - it's also quite rough, but I'm going to soak a couple of balls tomorrow and try overdying them with purple and black respectively and see how they go after that.
My god I love it when this kind of thing happens.
