Purple Haze

I recently picked this (and a few other skeins of purple yarn) at my local thrift store. I had never thought of looking for yarn at a thrift store, but apparently it is a gold mine for scrap yarn, needles and vintage patterns. This skein was packed up with my other purple skeins and cost about a dollar and a half total. This yarn in particular was interesting to me, mainly for it’s interesting name (“Haze”) and then for its intriguing fiber content:

Wow. Good thing I’m no yarn snob. I am looking for the perfect crazy, ironic vintage pattern to use with yarn for a birthday gift for a friend who loves purple.

On another note, I added my stash to Ravelry! What a wonderful resource for knitters and crocheters. I can finally keep track of projects and yarn all at one, well-organized place. Hurray, Ravelry!

    The thrift store is a great place to score yarn if you aren’t a yarn snob. 🙂 Love that purple…

    I love that purple yarn! I have also found tons of knitting needles and crochet hooks at thrift stores and yard sales. One time this lady gave me all of her knitting needles for a couple dollars. Can you believe the luck?! Crafting is fun and economical!

    I love thrifting yarn. I get some of the most amazing deals on expensive yarns I could never afford otherwise. As for a project idea, I’d think something wash clothes in the shape of pot leaves would be a funny play on the purple “haze” concept;)
