A friend and I went to the annual preview White Elephant sale in Oakland. This is a sale that benefits the Oakland Museum.
We got there just before they opened and the line was long. Of course we hit the sewing section first since that's where the yarn is. I was bummed that almost all but a few knitting books were already gone. And I mean gone in the sense that there was a man standing guard over TWO boxes full of knitting books! It looked like he went and grabbed all the books and put them in boxes to 'save them'. How lame is that?! Whatever...
This is the yarn I got:
green wool in a DK weight
100% silk cone (yay! My favorite purchase)
#40 cotton crochet thread
Pretty cool. I did get overwhelmed and had to leave after picking up a couple of sports hats for my son, a couple of games, and paper. I will have to go back for their 'real' sale in March.
