The explanation for this week's yarn and fabric is in yesterday's post. The only thing I bought myself was the yarn. And if you add up what I spent on the yarn, what Grandma spent on my birthday fabric, and what Mom spent on my share of the estate sale stuff, the grand total is only around $30. For almost a hundred yards of great fabric, and a huge bag of yarn. Did I mention that the fabric is mostly one yard cuts and that most of it is the old small scale prints I love so much?

I think the fabric numbers are fairly accurate, but the yarn is a wild guess. I weighed the bag, figured out how many skeins of worsted weight acrylic would be in eight pounds, and guessed at the total yardage from there.

The numbers sound insane, but at the rate I've been going, that yarn is only five months worth of baby hat knitting. And the price was definitely right. And the fabric was a birthday gift, which means I don't have to worry about it at all.
