Ball-band Love

I'm still playing with ideas for a baby blanket. For some reason the ball-bands have a special appeal to me.
Normally I value ball bands for the useful information they contain--all the vital statistics about the yarn that I love. Of course they're essential for matching dye-lots. But none of that is relevant here. There's no way I'm going to be able to match this old baby wool in a shop. Still those little slips of paper feel like a precious thing. I haven't been able to discard them yet.

Any idea how old it is?
crazy idea - Why not stick them up somewhere you pass regularly so you can keep enjoying them for a while?

I know what you mean! Mine wind up as bookmarks in all the books I've half read ;-)
