Today at the thrift store, I found a Lion Brand "Learn to Knit Kit" for $2.00 It was all brand-spanking new, didn't look like it had even been opened.
I wondered if perhaps someone thought it was missing a needle, since only one was visible on the back side? But the other one was "hiding" inside, between the skeins of yarn and the front label.
This is why I got the kit - the beautiful, indigo-colored yarn. :)
Here's the kit all opened up.
It has yarn, knitting instructions, patterns, knitting needles, and even a plastic darning needle for weaving the ends in when you're done (poked through the label in the photo).
Another look at the gorgeous yarn, which I am going to have fun making something with, either from the pattern provided, or maybe something else entirely. What a fun find this was. :)
