My downfall this time was a closing down sale for a local knitwear and clothing company. I have had some beautiful quality fabric from them in the past, so of course I had to check it out (although, showing some restraint I waited a week before I went). Imagine my pleasure when I walked in to see large boxes of knits to sort through and all fabric priced at $15 kg. Yep, by weight. These knits are all excellent quality too. Sigh, heaven is digging through boxes of fabric.
So my stash stats took a major dent. Here's the haul:
The colours are off a bit. From left to right, Top row - There are two different pinks at the top, each one big enough to make my youngest DD a cardy. Middle row - a soft navy lighter knit (this has merino in I think and will be for making thermal tops); A mauve wool acrylic for me; black wool/acrylic; some black ribbings. Bottom row - a deep brown/aubergine knit, it is a lot darker in real life; black wool; black wool/merino. These worked out to about $8 metre. :) I'm sure you can all understand why the stash stats had to be ignored.
I also got some pins....
.... a bunch of zips to add to the drawer of zips I already have, and enough domes to last me a lifetime at $4 for 2000 sets of the small silver ring domes. I foresee decorative domes on everything, lol.
Now to chain down that mojo, cross fingers for a snow day, and hit that sewing machine!
