Projects_043_1Found this yarn on sale for .50 cents a skein at Walmart, perfect for the knitted mermaid tail from Vicie Howell’s "new knits on the block" (surely you saw this project coming). 

Of course, there is the minor detail that the pattern calls for 10 balls of yarn and I could only scrounge up 4 (and not even 4 of the same color).  But I’m not going to let that deter me…yet.
