I acquired this Opal self-striping sock yarn in the form of a matching baby jacket and cap at an op shop in Benalla, a country town about two-hours' drive outside Melbourne. I'm not sure when I bought it but certainly before we came to the US.

I was delighted to be buying an item at the op shop made from identifiable commercial yarn (I still dream of a major Noro haul in just this fashion). The items weren't very well made so I unravelled them and now I am finally using it - it is yarn B in my Babette blanket (rounds three and four in square 8-3).

Oh of course! Genius! There I was thinking you must be weaving in a bazillion ends..!
