As well, I found 5 pair of knitting needles for $.49 cents/pair. I have only one size at home as I'm a new knitter, but I have lofty plans for this winter! I'm set on improving my skills and my ability to follow a pattern. Right now, I feel very mechanical when I knit - it isn't the slightest bit relaxing for me just yet - I find it very stressful and my shoulders are always way up high around my ears, lol. In time, I'm sure I'll relax once I get the hang of it...
Also, I purchased was this roll of cotton jersey fabric in a bright pink color - perfect for making some pajamas for Paige. $3.99 was a good price given that there's enough fabric for 2 pair if I lay the pattern out carefully.
This 100% cotton sheet also made it's way home with me for 99 cents. It's a very thick cotton with a high thread count and it looks as if it has never been used. I couldn't buy yardage of high quality cotton in the stores for what I paid for this sheet and I'm sure I can use the fabric for all sorts of things - an apron, some napkins, perhaps a nightie for Paige with some of that lovely trim... the possibilities are endless.
I love finding items at the thrift store that I can repurpose into other things. I ran out of time to look further, but I spied some good quality men's brushed cotton and cotton sateen dress shirts that were gorgeous - I could easily see those cut up into usable pieces of fabric for napkins, etc... I must get back there!
