After making my second trip to the farmers' market to buy more peaches (get 'em while you can!), I stopped in the Brooklyn Flea to browse and maybe get a little snack.  I certainly didn't expect to find this:

What?!?  Here I've been trying to destash, simplify, use what I have, and then I find 18 cones of beautiful cotton.  Apparently the vendor found them in front of the Met, which is bizarro, but all I could think was "hexagons, washcloths, bathroom curtain."  $55 later, they were mine.  Sometimes you can't let a good thing pass you by.

Sweet score! Man - you really can't pass up an opportunity like that; we'd have to question your commitment if you did! Good thing you were in the right place at the right time. Congrats!

Doggone, Woman, you'll be crocheting/knitting for the next 125 years before you go through all that!

However...when I saw them, I thought, Wow! Great decor lined up on a shelf somewhere! Color! Cool!

Oh.. What a catch! :D

Thank you for commenting on my blog. And we do have lots of berries like this (whatever their English name) around here. The reason I call them "plain": because we never actually use these berries. They taste very little and can only last for a day or so in the fridge..

In Iceland though, they pick them and eat them like blueberries (with cream or icecream) .. ;)

That is the most fantastic score! They look so pretty all lined up. I hope they are sitting somewhere pretty in your apartment.

That's an awesome score. I can imagine that you still might have some of that in 10 years.

Yes, the score was amazing and I do fear that I will be crocheting with it for years, but for now I push aside any questions of my being a horder and let my imagination run wild.
