A very kind friend who lives in Millis, Massachusetts and doesn't knit, happened upon a thirteen-gallon plastic bag filled with yarn at a yard sale. The price was fifty cents, but he paid a dollar. Then he drove down to Rhode Island and gave it to me.
As you can see, the colors are lovely. As you perhaps cannot tell, it's rug yarn. The processing is fairly minimal, and the dyes appear to be from natural vegetable substances. The texture is rough.
If you can use some of it, please let me know and it's yours. First come, first served.
And oh yes, it's bloody hot out, and the raspberries are in. Summer has definitely arrived.
