What a cute pattern book for a baby cardigan and bonnet. It is fun to find new baby patterns. I enjoy knitting baby things as it is for special little ones and it takes less time to knit!

How lucky can you get- bags of vintage yarns. Someone's loss is your gain! I love to find yarn that way, as there are often quite usable yarns in such a stash.

A mixed lot of yarns sometimes brings some wonderful yarns. It is inexpensive enough to take a chance on. These yarns look like they could be used with other yarns to knit some scarfs and shawls, which are really in this fall.

Some interesting ideas might be in the computer software for children's sports scrapbooking. I am always looking for new ideas and for less than $3 it might be a good investment.

The RedHeart blue baby yarn looks like more than enough for a few baby afghan and sweater sets. I would also use it in a knitted striped pattern, so it could be for a baby boy or girl.
