Overheard in a yarn shop recently

(not by me, but related to me by a trustworthy source):

There was a woman at a table knitting a blanket. For her daughter. She mentioned that the blanket required 30 balls of X---- yarn. Cost per ball: $17.00.

That's a $510 blanket. I am weak at the knees.

Another woman sitting near her asked whether she ever knit with cashmere. Apparently not, as she said that cashmere was much too expensive.

I wish I had that kind of money! Craziness. I'm Janine, and I'm your Dishrag Tag team captain! I'm making the rounds, checking out blogs and asking everyone to try to get on the forums so we can come up with a name!
