Yarn Porn

Sorry everyone. I've been a naughty rippler. I haven't posted any progress pics of my 'ghan, yet I've been working on it, on and off for little over a week now. Hopefully I'll slap a pic of it this weekend. It's about halfway where I want to be... so I've got a ways to go.

Okay... so the title of this post? Yarn Porn? Well everyone... salivate over my "find." The local dollar store has Lion Suede on sale for a buck a skein, when you and I both know it retails at around $5.99 a skein elsewhere. Yesterday I bought up about 15 skeins, and today I bought 30 more. I might just go back there this weekend and finish up gobbling up the remainder in the bin (I tried some restraint today). My total savings (so far): $225.

What on earth could I possibly use all this Lion Suede for?

FOR MY NEXT RIPPLE 'GHAN, OF COURSE!

wow I wish my local dollar store sold yarn... even acrylic would be nice. But I do live in a smaller town, so go figure....

I should have some friends check their LDS's to see if they are selling yarn and to pick me up some.

So - what dollar store might that be? My stash is a little wimpy now that my ripple is done . . .

Oh it doesn't sell yarn all the time, but I keep checking!

For a buck a skein I couldn't pass it up!

For all I know they probably got it in this week as a box of it must have mysteriously dropped off the back of a truck or something! I don't care the reason, but a buck a skein, it's too good of a bargain to pass up!

That is an awesome bargain! I'm so totally jealous... And I love working with the Lion Suede.
