    I have had a dilemma for a long time, and I vaccilate back and forth about it. I knit and quilt both. I WANT to patronize my local yarn shops and quilt fabric shops, in order to help keep them open. (Seems like a new one opens and closes fairly quickly around here). Their prices are much...

    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.

    A friend of mine recently sent me a picture of a grocery tote sack that she made by turning plastic grocery sacks into yarn. It made think of my Depression-Era neighbor who used to knit doormats/ragrugs out of plastic sacks. Now I am fiendishly cutting up my plastic grocery sacks and turning...

    A recent trip to Hobby Lobby got me to pondering the finer points of yarn. I have some questions. 1. What's your favorite type or brand of yarn to work with? 2. What does it cost? 3. Have you found ways to ease the sting of the costs of yarn?

    I was on a needlework site and someone asked if anyone had a yarn bowl. I had never heard of them, but when I looked at some on Etsy I fell in love - not to mention covetousness. But they are very expensive, most in the $30-40 range (too rich for me) and since they are pottery, cost the moon to...

    A woman at my knitting group has been learning, and she brought it all types of fibers that she's spinning into yarn. It seems so neat but also pretty labor intense too. It's probably relaxing (and rewarding!) to do, but I guess if I were going to go to all that trouble, I'd want to know that I...

    Okay, I have this bag of wool yarn. About 6 pounds. I want to sell it. Thinking a ebay auction. BUT.... I don't know the right key words for my title. And any other ideas on how to describe it. I so far would use the words WOOL, YARN, LOT I am lost as far as what style of yarn.... is this...

    What is the smallest yarn remnant that you keep? How do you store them? I was organizing my yarn stash yesterday, and I had quite a few remnant "balls" of cotton yarn.

    What do you do with the little 'leftovers' of yarn from various projects that are all finished? From the little 2 inch balls to maybe half a skein? I'm starting to accumulate several and hate to just toss them, but don't know what to do with them??? Thanks! :)

    I found a turning Susan at an estate sale today -- I am definitely going to make one of these: (If you look up 'tilta swift' on Ravelry, you can see that 14 other people have posted theirs.)

    Does anyone buy their yarns from the internet? My local stores don't carry a lot of choices of yarn. Red Heart, Sugar & Cream, Lion and Bernat is all. Which site do you use most often, if you buy from the internet? Thanks.

    I just spent WAY too much time window shopping the yarn section at Hobby Lobby. I've found that this time of year, they start slashing prices & I'm scouting it out for later, when they slash them further :) But, I don't have any patterns for the HL brand yarn, "Yarn Bee" so I'm not sure what I...

    I went to the vinnies store nearby for the first time in several months. on the bottom of a shelf i found some bags of yarn. I got a small bag with about a dozen balls of baby yarn in it for $3. With balls of yarn about $4-7 each at the craft store, this will keep me knitting for a while without...

    I am currently knitting some hats and trying to use up some odds and ends I have around here. Also getting brave and trying some yarn I don't normally use. This is a photo album of my latest ones. The first one in the album I see a CROSS on the front of it. Does anyone else ? Or am I seeing...
