Confessions about my stash

I went to my stash of baby wool this morning,
a friend is having her third, it's due in a couple of months
so
I thought i'd knit a couple of jackets with matching hats.

I found 6 balls of a "Robin DK" white with a lemon and green fleck,
perfect for what I wanted,
then i found the receipt for the original purchase of the yarn.

It was on sale for $1.50 Australian per ball in June 1988!

According to the receipt i bought 60 balls,
now 19 years later I'm down to the final 6 balls.

Yep, there are lots of treasures tucked away in my stash.
