making the most of what we have
Maybe we're ragged and funny,
But we'll travel along,
Singing a song,
Side by side.
We're a pretty resourceful family, finding ways to make the most of what we have and turning extras into experiences/things we want. A few examples from the past week:
weavers' guild yarn tag sale almost two years ago.
Leading to: A challenging cabled sweater that's being knit by Leah. Both sleeves and ~6" of the body are done now and she's just barely into the second cone of yarn, so the cost for this sweater's yarn is going to be around $6.
Leading to: Our hefty stash of electronics components scavenged from discarded/broken electronics at our dump's put-and-take. The perfect next step for a tinkerer like Jesse.
Leading to: The above luscious yarns through a Ravelry swap group. Roving and fabrics (velvet, satin, brocade) for the seamstress still in the pipeline.
Leading to: Good feelings from a volunteer job well done, possible loan of their portable weaving loom for a few months.
