Oh man. I went to goodwill today (looking for clothes for reconstruction). Well I decided that I would go to the linen section to see if they had any patterns. Lo and behold they had a HUGE bag of knitting stuff!!! I got the whole thing for 8 bucks. I tried to take a picture but I can't upload it.  Embarrassed So instead I made a list of everything I got. I still can't believe it.
6 stitch holders
a size 10 circular needle
3 cable needles
1 set of sock pins (not sure what to do with them)
2 sets size 1
3 sets of size 2 needles (1 new still in package)
5 sets of size 3 (1 new)
3 sets size 4
2 sets size 5 and one single
2 sets size 6 (1 new)
1 single size 7
8 sets size 8 (1 single)
3 sets size 9 (1 single)
3 sets size 10
1 set size 10 and half
3 sets size 11
1 set size 13
1 set size 15
1 long J hook
1 long F hook
1 H hook
1 I hook
2 pairs (one set?) size 6
3 size 2
2 size 3
2 size 7
4 size 1

It also came with a needle/stitch gauge. I was like oh my god! I couldn't believe it. hahaha  Grin

Edited to add: I forgot to mention that most of these needles are aluminum. A few pairs are plastic and the size 15s are wood.

I keep going to the thrift stores around here but never find anything good. I bet someone is just beating me to the best stuff (himeykitty and IStalkBillGates, I'm looking at you two!) Wink

I've never had quite THAT kind of luck at the goodwill, but I've done pretty well.  I only own 2 pairs of needles that were purchased new, and I've got almost a whole set.  I've never found circs or dpns yet.  (But I got a $20 gift certificate to Hobby Lobby for my birthday, so I think I'm going to get some from there.)  But I've done pretty good on yarn.  I got 2 hanks of Classic Elite Waterspun in a matching dye lot in a craft grab bag for $1.  Also included in the grab bag were 2 full skeins of Lion Brand Chenille Thick and Quick and a bunch of beads that my daughter can use.  Thats not a HUGE buy, but it IS at least $22 of yarn for a buck.

Damn...and I thought my thrift-store stash was good.  I love finding sets of needles at those places...my favorite local thrifty charges a dollar a pair...so much cheaper than even the Mega Craft stores [granted most of what I've found at my thrifty are flexible plastic needles...not my favs to work with, but I've got a huge variety in sizes now, which is nice for a beginner like me].  I've found some yarn too...nothing too nice so far, mostly acrylic in odd colors, with the odd wool skein thrown in. Luckily, I'm no yarn snob [can't afford to be].  Hooray for Thrift Stores!
