Well we’re barely a week into this new year and I’ve already broken my 3rd goal for 2010.
To try to use more of my yarn stash instead of buying yarn.
I went with my mother to Ben Franklin Craft Store – those of you who really know me would see that this was the first step in breaking my goal. We actually went for a jewelry trip, but I always have to check the yarns. I have been waiting for them to get the Sugar ‘n Cream Warm Brown yarn in because I’m in the middle of a hat and ran out. I was so proud of myself because as I roamed the yarn aisles, nothing jumped out at me saying I needed it now. We bought our jewelry needs and left the store, but then I saw the clearance yarns. Oh, just let me look for a minute!
Here’s what I found – Di.ve Fiamma, made in Vergnasco, Italy.
and in this color -
and in this color. Also notice the change in bulk of the yarn.
I was pulled in because of the price. These were on clearance for $2 a ball. Who could turn that down?! When I got home, I was even more pleased because I discovered that these originally sold for $18 a ball. Boy, did I get a deal.
I bought 14 balls of yarn worth $252 for $28!!
