I often pick up yarn at the local Salvation Army, usually smallish balls of random fibre, but I lucked out with a largish ball of some sort of beige "homespun." It might be Bernat Roving Yarn:

I was soooooo bored with it and couldn't think of anything to do with it in that state, so with repeated overdyings involving food colouring and Tintex acid dyes, I have something much more exciting:



I'm thinking this sweater for my boyfriend's best friend's 5 yr old daughter:

Isn't that adorable?! Sure hope I have enough yarn to make it Cheesy
