Yarn Sale

Hello again!

I know, I know! Two posts in two days. What's wrong with that woman you say! But I have happy news for those of you who like to knit or crochet. Michaels is having a 4 day yarn sale to make room for new stock coming in June. I hope this doesn't mean that they are getting rid of two of my favorite yarns, but from Wednesday to Saturday this week you can get Lily Sugar & Cream cotton 4/$5.00 and Caron Simply Soft 2/$5.00. These are both GREAT prices. Simply Soft is usually $4.49 or so per skein. Now the important thing to remember is that this is an email sale. The prices are NOT marked in the yarn aisle. When you get to the cashier just tell them that you're buying them from the email sale. You don't have to show them anything and the yarn will ring up at the sale price.

Looky what I bought!


Now I didn't buy all of this yesterday. I bought 16 balls of dishcloth cotton and 10 skeins of Simply Soft to restock my supplies. I may or may not go back today and get more!!!
Do you see the two layers of cotton? I really like this bin for keeping it in. I've tried several different storage methods but this seems to work best for me. I can see the colors through the clear plastic, even on the bottom layer.

Okay friends, I'm off to trim bushes in the yard. I just wanted to get the word out to those of you in the U.S. about the sale. Have a WoNdErFuL day everyone.

Blessings,
Betsy

  2. Hey, that's like the bin I keep some of my yarn in, too. Great minds thinking alike. :)

    Love that you have replenished your stash. It's a great sale, too.

    Wishing you a lovely day filled with many blessings dear friend.

  5. Thank you all for your kind comments. I didn't buy everything yesterday but I do try to buy yarn only when it's on sale or I have a coupon.

    Teresa - I used the simply soft for baby sweaters, hats and booties. It washes well and is really soft. I also thought about making a blanket in muted colors like Shari and use the SS instead of cotton. What do you think?
    Blessings,

  6. Betsy, I was at Micheal's today getting double pointed needles and saw the sale. I was so tempted by the sugar and cream, I may have to go back it is a total bargain.

  14. Betsy, as far as the straps for the bag, you can sew in a long piece of ribbon onto the inside of the strap and that should give it more stability. You can also felt the straps which really helps to create a stable strap, but then you would have to use non-washable wool.
    Have fun at the lake, I am jealous.
    Hugs,
