I'm finding that I really like experimenting with novelty yarn - I picked up 2 rubbermaid totes with about 50 skeins each of all kinds of stuff (some quite pricey) for only $10. It's fun combining colors and types of yarn - plus something with simple stitches looks more high-end.

The beret is a combination of a yarn that was 3 colors/widths of chenille and rust-brown vintage 2-ply wool.  It is the Chunky Beret from Melody Griffith's So Simple Crochet. I added some vintage buttons



The second is a super cozy scarf made from a brown/taupe/white ribbon yarn that has lengths of cotton string attached and a mixed brown chenille.  Half-double crochet along the length of the chain with both yarns, 2 rows of single crochet (down & back up) with just the chenille and repeat.

Two tubs for ten bucks!  You lucky duck!  How did you do that?

I know, right -- the tubs were even included. Great yard sale.
