Yarn Extravaganza

One of our LYS' is relocating, and for the last several weeks they have been increasing the sale priceof all their yarn. Today was the first day I stopped by, and I was surprised to see they still had quite a lot of good stuff left. And all at 75% off!

Who cares that I have no idea what I am going to do with the majority of it.

One skein of Louet's Euroflax.


4 skeins Patagonia Nature Cotton.


5 skeins Rowanspun.


5 skeins of Elisabeth Lavold Silky Tweed.


4 skeins Karabella SuperYak. This, I actually have a plan for. My dad has asked for a scarf. Since this shows him actually taking an interest in my knitting, I thought I had better deliver, and deliver good. 50% Yak, %50 merino ought to be pretty good.

All of this for less than $50! Gotta love a sale.

Oh dear. 75%? I may have to make another stop over there. Crap. How to justify this to the husband?

Holy smokes, guess where I am going tomorrow. It doesn't take much talking to justify 75% off. You gotta spend money to save money, baby!

Wow: that's enough to make several large projects! The Rowanspun and Lavold are good finds.

It's not a novel comment to this post, but I still have to say, "Wow! 75%?!" I am really eager to try Euroflax, I love the color you've chosen.

Kay said...

That sounds like a great sale! I'll be in Tulsa next week...what store is moving???

I found you from the Knit Blue KAL - I would like to join but your profile does not show your email, so here I am, leaving a comment ;-)

leah said...

Wow! I may just have to make a trip to Tulsa! It's not far from Norman, right? Though with the price of gas, it might cut into my discount a bit!!

Pat said...

How come they never have sales like that around here?? Nice yarn haul!!!I've always wanted to try Euroflax and the SuperYak is intriguing too!

lobstah said...

Wow, you done good! I want try Yak yarn so bad but it's usually too expensive! Can't wait to see it knit up.

Great choices (and savings)!

Sarah said...

Oh, the lust in my heart! Especially after the Euroflax, which I've been wanting to try. What a good haul.

Thanks for the nice comment on my haircut! :)

Fannie Pie said...

what a lovely haul... I really love the feel of the euroflax knit up.. it doesn't feel like it could possibly ever become that soft, and yet it does.

also love the hand dyed yarn, yummy stuff!

Happy knitting!

You have some of my favourite yarns there - and I have a friend who would kill for the Superyak - I just love the name!
