    Default Yarn on Sale at Joanns.com

    I received an email from Joann's---yarn via the website is on sale for 30% off. If you enter the promo code Save15, you get an additional 15 percent off.


    My original cart included 464$ worth of yarn.

    It's slowly dwindling.

    I ended up spending 145$ including tax.

    I purchased all the colors of sugar and cream I need to make a set of themed dishclothes for Z's stepsister for Christmas (Mario themed!). (20$ish)

    I purchased the 5 balls of homespun I need to make a blanket for my brother's fiance for Christmas. (20$ish)

    I purchased the two balls of yarn I have been wanting to make myself a hate ($10)

    And the remaining money I spent (minus shipping and taxes) was for multiple balls of LBY thick and quick that will be made in scarves and cowls I plan to sell on etsy,

    Thanks, I think.

    I've been buying a lot at Goodwill lately so I'm pretty well stocked, but I'm looking for something special for a few chemo caps for a friend just got a double whammy, a diagnosis of one cancer, then when they were testing before she started treatment, they found another type of cancer, too. I wish I could find some of that Fizz yarn that looks sort of like hair once it's made up, but no luck so far. I don't think they make it anymore.

    What size needles are you using with the Homespun? I wanted to make this hat: Newedist Handknits Blog Archive Wurm using Homespun, but it seems hard to work with. Maybe the needles I'm using are too small or something. Any tips? I'm not sure how well that yarn would work with that hat anyway.

    This is the pattern I am using for the Homespun. Ravelry: Fast Finish Throw #60045A pattern by Lion Brand Yarn

    Because you use 5 skeins at once, you use size 50 needles.

    That hat is gorgeous, but I wouldn't use homespun. Homespun isn't going to show the details of that hat well. Because it is a bulkier weight yarn, the bigger needles you use, the better.

    AC Moore has yarn on sale this week. I want to say it ends Oct 1 but not sure of ending date. I bought a 16 ounce skein of Caron in the orange. Used it yesterday to make a hat and not happy with it. It seems thicker than the red heart I been using.
    Regular pice was 9.99 a skein / sale price 5.99 .

    Homespun.....I tried my first skein of it recently. I had some here that I picked up at a garage sale. I used it on my bulky knitting machine. Made a real cute hat with it. But it seems the hat is too big. I am using the same number of stitches that I use for worsted weight yarn. It probably would make a good blanket though. But I won't be buying any of it new to find out. Have to dig deeper in the stash to find the balance of it.

    As my buddies over in the crochet corner thread know, I have a More Than Adequate stash. However, I have started using some of the Red Heart Classic - it seems nicer than the Super Saver - and that would be a really good price for it, even with shipping. There are some colors I would like to replenish. Also maybe a few skeins of the Bernat Saver to go with some loners in my stash. I'll see. I really didn't want to spend the money now, but the Classic may prove irresistible.
