I responded to an ad on-line, selling knitting stuff. She was asking $75, which I originally thought was a little steep but then I got the stuff and went through it.
I got a huge bag (garbage bag sized) full of yarn - various colours and textures, some whole balls, some part. It works out fine for me because I do a lot of hat and mitt sets for charity and I like to make patchwork afghans, too.
And there was a bunch of pattern and how-to books, a bunch of different needles including round ones, stitch holders, crochet hooks, etc.
But the piece de resistance? About 8 children's Icelandic style sweaters, already knitted. About 8 little layette sets with hat, sweater, booties, some with matching blankets. There is one bootie missing but I can knit that up to replace it. There is another baby blanket and a funky hat.
One of my coworkers is expecting her first grandchild in January so she'll get first pick on the baby stuff. I'm going to give her one set of her choice and if she wants more, I think I'll ask for $5. I'm going to take in the sweaters, too, and ask for $5 for those, too. These sets would easily be $30 at a craft sale so it is a good deal for everyone and I get some of my money back.
