View Full Version : Bernat Disco - free!

08-27-2005, 09:11 AM
I perked up immediately when I saw the 'free ball of yarn' link in my daily freebie email. It turns out that Bernat is giving away free balls of Disco novelty yarn, which is pretty awesome. If you're interested, click here (http://www.bernat.com/getdown/index.php).
I think they'll only ship to Canada and the US, though.

08-27-2005, 09:16 AM
WooHooo! I love free stuff!

08-27-2005, 09:16 AM
Sweet!!!!!! :cheering:

08-27-2005, 09:48 AM
:cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

08-27-2005, 11:25 AM
Thanks! I really NEED some more yarn!!!!

08-27-2005, 06:06 PM
Free yarn? Yes, please!
After signing up for the free yarn, I couldn't stop myself and went to knitpicks and placed my first-ever order from them. I got 14 skeins for $42! I love those prices.
Now, do I need yarn? Of course not. My walk-in closet is full, a shipping carton under my desk is full, my daughter's closet is beginning to be a yarn storage area...
Besides, I won't have time to knit with my new yarn for a while because I just submitted more designs to the yarn company that bought some from me last spring, and those will keep me busy for probably 2-3 months, assuming they buy more of my designs.
But I'm a yarnaholic, what can I say?

08-27-2005, 06:43 PM
Sweet! Thanks for the link!

08-27-2005, 08:47 PM
I just signed up for mine. Thanks! :cheering:

08-28-2005, 02:31 PM
what a nice surprise. I keep debating on placing a yarn order. I truly dont need yarn, but wants and needs are two different things.

08-28-2005, 03:18 PM
I was in front of two ladies at Michaels one day quite a while ago, and they were each buying an armload of disco. As they stood there, they were picking fibers off their clothes and I thought I'll never buy that yarn......BUT, I'm not one for novelty yarns anyways.....AND, I did sign up for my free ball. I can't pass up free yarn!! :oops:

08-28-2005, 04:28 PM
They also ship to the UK and other countries. My friends from the UK got some. ;)

10-05-2005, 11:32 AM
Did anyone receive their free Bernat yarn? :??

10-05-2005, 11:42 AM
nope...i figure if i get it i get it and it will be like a fun little present when it does show up. now if i was PAYING for it we would have a problem...lol

10-05-2005, 11:52 AM
It says it takes 6 to 8 weeks for the free yarn.

I did order one, thanks for the info :)

10-05-2005, 12:15 PM
I agree, a gift in the mail it will be :cheering:

10-05-2005, 12:39 PM
I had already totally forgotten about it, and probably will again before it comes. :mrgreen:

10-06-2005, 08:41 AM
Too Funny! It came in yesterdays mail! Serendipity I guess. :cheering:

10-06-2005, 08:41 AM
OOOH! Now Im gonna be stalking the mailman!!

What color did you get???

10-06-2005, 08:44 AM
The color just yelled my daughter's name lol. A start to a scarf maybe :thinking: hmmmm

Born on 4 of 7
10-06-2005, 08:51 AM
I just got mine in the mail last night too. I got aqua velvet its real purty. :heart: I think Iam going to match it up with yarn and knit a scarf. It came with a catalog and three free patterns. :cheering:

10-06-2005, 08:53 AM
The color just yelled my daughter's name lol.
Well, WHAT color, Stony?!? :lol:

10-06-2005, 09:01 AM
Aqua Velvet--it is at home or I would take a picture of it for ya... the package was open a bit when it came... DAH thought it was a pair of tights lol. Stalk away KK. It makes the mail carriers feel loved! :heart:

10-06-2005, 09:03 AM
Man, my mail doesn't run until late afternoon. Sigh....it's gonna be a long day. :rollseyes:

10-06-2005, 09:06 AM
ahhh.. but it gives you something to look forward to! lol. Most things that I order I have delivered here at work... hate waiting til I get home! Patience is not one of my virtues... :oops:

10-06-2005, 09:09 AM
OMG I do the SAME thing, Stony!

So...we have TWO aqua velvets.....I wonder if that's the only color they sent out??

10-06-2005, 11:22 AM
Hey Thanks Tab! I love free stuff too! Gotta be something to do with that yarn......

10-06-2005, 05:43 PM
Ooh, I hope mine comes soon.

I must need a nap. At first I thought the name of the color was Aqua Velva. :rollseyes:

10-06-2005, 05:54 PM
Did anyone receive their free Bernat yarn? :??

Nope, I ordered many many weeks ago....

10-06-2005, 08:33 PM
DAGNABBIT where is my aqua velva!!!!!

10-07-2005, 02:39 AM
I never did get mine :(

10-07-2005, 07:16 AM
You make it sound like you're never going to get yours, humblestumble! I haven't gotten mine yet either. I'm expecting it to take closer to 6 weeks than 4, because it always seems to go that way with shipping for me.

10-07-2005, 08:46 AM
Mine came yesterday....Aqua Velvet too. Very bright. I'm not sure what I'll do with it. Something for my niece maybe? :thinking:

10-07-2005, 11:15 PM
Mailman didnt give me my disco yarn yet :wall:

10-08-2005, 06:18 AM
What color is aqua velvet?
I want my aqua velvet.....I ordered about a month ago. I probably have a few more weeks before I get mine. *sigh*

10-08-2005, 02:01 PM
No Disco in my mailbox yet either. I approach the mailbox as if I don't even care, hoping that will work better than the stalking. No luck.

10-08-2005, 02:02 PM
Here's a pic, but the yarn looks very green in the picture and in reality it is a very bright turquoise with silver flecks.[/img]

10-08-2005, 07:44 PM
I got mine! I can't remember when I ordered it..but it arrived the other day :)

10-08-2005, 09:33 PM
haven't got mine yet either... well now that i know what color it is i don't care! when i ordered it i was wondering what color it would be. i was hopin it would be turquise... i guess thats not coming to b!!! :?

10-17-2005, 01:58 AM
I still havent recieved my free disco yarn. Hm I wonder if my mailman knits???

10-17-2005, 05:09 PM
I want my aqua velva man darn it!

10-18-2005, 06:36 PM
i just got mine in the mail today:) finally:P Like previously stated, the color is aqua velvet.
You can see the color here:
or http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=disco
It's a turquoisey color.
Be patient all, it will come:) It takes a while! I got impatient, too:P

10-19-2005, 01:42 AM
Still no Disco Yarn :verysad:

10-19-2005, 07:36 AM
I ran to my mailbox, too, after seeing D's post....I couldve used it today on the plane!

10-19-2005, 03:52 PM
Wow - I forgot all about this!. I registered twice (I figured my DH wouldn't mind if I used his email address too) but I still haven't gotten mine. Now I get to be impatient because it's on my mind!

10-19-2005, 07:33 PM
No Disco yarn here yet :D

10-20-2005, 09:32 AM
None for me either.

10-27-2005, 03:09 PM
I got my Disco today. I'm not real thrilled with the color though. I got "mr brown". I was going to knit this into something for my daughter, but she doesn't like brown... any other color would have been great. Figures. You get what you pay for. LOL

BUT, the yarn is lovely. And I'm thinking I might be able to trick her into liking it if I knit it with a black and a tan color... possibly getting an animal print look. :)

10-27-2005, 03:13 PM
Silver - If I ever get mine and it happens to be a color your daughter would like maybe we could switch? I'm a sucker for those earth tones . . .

10-27-2005, 03:17 PM
I got mine today as well, also Mr. Brown. Kinda ick. But hey, it was free.

10-27-2005, 03:43 PM
I got mine yesterday. I received a teal-y kind of color. I wouldn't mind trading for brown if anyone wants to. Be forewarned...my children decided to unravel almost the entire skein and lost the ball band in the process. I haven't found the band, which means my dog most likely ate it. :rollseyes:

10-27-2005, 05:07 PM
I got my ball of yarn this week...It is aqua. Not sure what I'll make with it... :thinking:

10-27-2005, 05:20 PM
Hey i wanna see the brown...somebody post a pic please!!! i STILL have not got mine!!!

10-27-2005, 05:51 PM
oh finally came, I got a beautiful bronze color. I thought they ran out by now, glad to see them still coming.

10-27-2005, 06:57 PM
That yarn would be *perfect* for this (http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt10.htm)! :D

I haven't gotten mine yet...I'm more convinced than ever that someone's been swiping my mail. :shock:

10-27-2005, 07:28 PM
that would be perfect. Yours will come I am sure of it, they are still sending them.

10-27-2005, 09:17 PM
Julie~how did i know what you were going to link before i clicked on??!!

10-27-2005, 11:32 PM

10-27-2005, 11:49 PM

i must confess that cap creeps me out! that yarn is beautiful though...i feel like i signed up for that before it even got posted on here and i STILL don't have mine....mebbe it is a conspiracy to keep the middle of the country yarnless? :thinking:

:rofling: :rofling:

10-28-2005, 12:18 AM
you know you have a point... maybe the midwest is last on the list! :rollseyes:

10-28-2005, 12:30 AM
broooown! I'm in a brown loving stage, I think I would've preferred the brown over the aqua velvet, but what can ya do! I'll figure out what to do with it sometime.. but the fact remains it's FREE.. how can you not love free yarn? :)

10-28-2005, 12:34 AM
Well, this is the first I've seen of this! I ordered mine today, plus sent one to every member of the family. They're probably going to wonder what the heck is going on when they get panties and yarn in the mail!

10-28-2005, 01:32 AM
Well, this is the first I've seen of this! I ordered mine today, plus sent one to every member of the family. They're probably going to wonder what the heck is going on when they get panties and yarn in the mail!

oooooh don't tell them....the idea of that surprise is just too much! :rofling: :rofling:

10-28-2005, 01:46 AM
Well, except for the fact that none of them knit ;) The plan is for them to give them to me...

10-28-2005, 08:59 AM
So glad I finally read this though! Thanks for the tip.

I've got mine on order now.

11-01-2005, 08:30 PM
I got my yarn today!!! I received a lovely copper metallic color, I know exactly who to use it for.......

11-02-2005, 07:20 PM
I got Mr. Brown!

11-02-2005, 07:38 PM
Still no yarn for me :crying:

11-02-2005, 07:42 PM
:( Me either. I could use a happy surprise too.

11-02-2005, 08:12 PM
me either!

11-02-2005, 08:28 PM
I don't have mine yet either.

11-02-2005, 10:10 PM
I've been away for awhile... wish I could say that I've spent ALL my time knitting, but alas, not so.... however, I finally caught up with viewing... and came across the free yarn. I am already knee deep in yarn but couldn't resist a surprise! Hopefully I will be done with current projects :thinking:

11-02-2005, 10:55 PM
I got my yarn! It's Mr. Brown. I think everyone is getting there's in sets; like a certain month gets a certain yarn? It took like 2 months to get my yarn, so don't fret! I'm sure it will come soon. :)

P.S. I knit my first scarf with the turquoise colored and it was a PAIN IN THE *BEEP*! So I am in no hurry to use this yarn on anything. Lol. Too bad I don't know anyone else who knits. If anyone would like to trade some yarn for it, I'd be willing to pitch it in a few other yarns. I don't have a lot of fantastic yarns, but I might have some you'd like!

11-02-2005, 11:38 PM
Thank you! I just signed up for mine, can't wait.

11-03-2005, 07:09 PM
HAH! I already got mine!! Don't know what I'm goin got do with it..cause it is Turquoise Eyelash..............but it was FREE !FREE! FREE!lol:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

11-04-2005, 10:14 AM
Did anyone receive their free Bernat yarn? :?? :zzz: nope, I have given up waiting too...

11-04-2005, 10:43 PM
I Tried to and it said it would be shipped to me lol YEAH RIGHT LOL I gave up as well on the yarn lol.
Vanessa :rollseyes:

11-16-2005, 03:40 PM
i got mine today!!! i got Mr. Brown... don't know what i'm going to do eith it. they sent a pattern of a belted purse with it and i'm leaning towards that!

11-16-2005, 03:44 PM
Wow - this gives me hope. I had actually given up on this awhile ago. Maybe mine will be waiting for me when I get home tonight . . .

11-21-2005, 01:03 PM
I meant to post again that same night after my last one but guess what? I got Mr. Brown in my mailbox that night! What the heck will I use it for?

I like to make the tube scarves for friends but I'm not sure if it's enough. Plus I'm determined not to buy any since then I would be just giving in to their whole marketing plan!!!

11-21-2005, 01:11 PM
well i got some colors that i thought would go with it pretty well at my LYS but i looked at them in natural light today and they really don't go well at all so i am taking those back to the LYS and looking for something else. mostly it is just an excuse to go back to the lys i think!

10-07-2006, 01:49 AM
Would you believe I never got my free disco yarn?? :shrug:

10-07-2006, 04:09 AM
I never got mine either and it has been months upon months. :) I guess they ran out.

10-07-2006, 10:27 AM
Hey....I didn't get mine, either! Which is probably a good thing :wink:

10-07-2006, 11:42 AM
Didn't get mine either. I don't know what I woudda done with it anyway

10-07-2006, 02:09 PM
I never did either! Nor did my mom, MIL, or SIL whom I had signed up for it also! ;)

10-07-2006, 02:12 PM
I didn't get mine either, but I don't feel too bad. I really hate that feathery stuff. :teehee:

10-09-2006, 03:03 PM
I did get the free Bernat Disco yarn. It wasn't anything special. Just some fuzzy novelty yarn that I never did use.

10-10-2006, 07:52 AM
I did get mine. It is a turquoise and silver flecked fur type yarn. still looking for somthing to make with it

10-10-2006, 11:00 AM
I got mine way back when they started this...I also got the Mr Brown and made a scarf with it!

10-10-2006, 11:04 AM
For those who didn't get the yarn, they may have signed up too late and they'd run out of yarn. The first ones sent were Aqua, but after they ran out of that, sent Mr Brown. I didn't care much for the yarn, or the color, but the color was perfect for one of my co-workers and since I made scarves for all of them for christmas.....
