Mrs. Jones, I Must Like Them BIG!!!

I've recently discovered a Farmers Market only blocks from my work (literally 2 1/2 blocks) when I decided to go to a knitting meet up in the area one thursday. I guess it was destinay for me to discover it and discover one of vendors had some roving for sale. The last couple of Thursdays I've walked by their stall and eyed their roving but never inquired about it until today.

I am happy I did. :)

I discivered their HUGE ball of roving was only $20 for something 2-3 times the size I have found online. Granted, it's all one color, but even for a solid color it's an awesome bargain.

Thinking about it, it might be closer to 3 -4 times the size, I'm use to getting from online (typically I see 4oz of roving for $12).

Anyway, here are the photos of the ball of roving next to my head to show size.
