I went to the pound thrift yesterday and bought around 40 pounds of old T-shirts and sheets for rug making. At the Pound thrift or (Goodwill Outlet Center) they sell stuff by the pound which makes for some unbeatable deals!
Just to let you know, if you think a normal Goodwill atmosphere is grim the pound thrift is positively hellish. The stuff is in large plastic tubs on wheels and every half hour they bring out new tubs full of new stuff and people go CRAZY trying to be the first to get at the new stuff, sort of like competitive dumpster diving.
Well I survived — and I’m happy to have a so much new material, because I started experimenting with fair isle crochet.
Fair isle crochet allows me to make patterns within the rug!
This month it’s my goal to have at least 2 full pages of inventory my Etsy shop. One of the things that is helping me accomplish this is the awesome RadioLab podcasts guaranteed to blow your mind while you craft!
