fleamarket finds don't count...

...to any kind of yarn diet! Yes, that's the truth and I'm sticking to it, besides nobody could have past that bargain. But first things first: weatherman/lady your in trouble should I ever meet you! They said that the saturday would be a wonderfull sunny day in WHOLE Germany...it wasn't at the coast! It didn't really rain as in getting totally soaked, but there was more than just a few drops which sucks when going to a fleamarket especially when you're only wearing a light cardigan over a dress(fortunately I was wearing some linnen pants too). I made some great bargains nonetheless. My mum on the other hand only brought some self-made bread ;-)
Here is a pic of it all:
There's a whole plastic bag with undyed yarn(it's not as white as in the pic) which is probably cotton or a cottonmix. Haven't weighted it yet, but I guess it's about 1kg for 6€!!!
And finally I found a pot for dyeing yarn. It's really hard to find a bigger pot at the fleamarket and I didn't wanted to buy a new one just for yarn dyeing.
There's also two needle cases with DPNs and circulars together for 4€! The woman was a friend of my mum's cousin's wife, so we got them for less ;-)
Having just envied the vintage bags at that website I just had to buy the one you can see in the pic for 1,50€! I really love fleamarkets, don't know what I would do without them!
There's also a brooch which is actuall a birthday present for me from my mum, so theoratically I would have to wait untill I can use it...
At the bottom are a few postcards and notepads with pictured/prints of Cuxhaven/the coast.
Here are a few close-ups:




After yesterdays scores it was inevitable that today I wouldn't find much. I only brought this needle case which is for straight needles...yes, I know I just sewed one and I don't own that many straights anyway, but it's kind of cute and I just had to buy something...
