I don't do much thrift store shopping anymore, but I was antsy this morning and decided it was time to step away from the computer and get outside. Although my intention was to head to Agway to get some narcissus bulbs to force, I pulled into the Parish Outreach Thrift Store just to take a gander. I picked up a bud vase and three Pendleton skirts. Feeling lucky, I stopped in at the Eastern Long Island Hospital Op Shop and took a look around -- more Pendleton skirts! Plus a Ted Lapidus skirt -- fancy French designer wool -- that I probably won't hook with, but will use for something else. For less than $20 I came away with 8 skirts and tons of yardage. Score! Some people say that Pendleton wool is to0 thin to hook with, but I say they're crazy. I LOVE Pendleton wool -- as is, over-dyed, inside out -- it is great fabric. Of course, they went right into the washer when I arrived home -- don't want any little flying critters in my stash.
