I am new to the forum, so I apologize if this is a repeated post.

One of my knitting groups advised me that Bernat is giving away a full ball of Disco. The link is http://www.bernat.com/getdown They don't even ask for your e-mail address or phone number, just a few survey questions, so I don't foresee much soliciting/strings attached. It expires 01/01/2006. I haven't used Disco yet, but I certainly can't pass up free yarn! ;)


Enjoy!

I sorta figured this had been around already, but it was news to me. Sorry about the repeat post! At least now I know I can expect to wait a LOOOOOONG time to receive my free ball! ;)

Oh I got those also and they are wonderful!!! :thumbsup: They actually tempted me to go and buy some. When I first opened the package my dd told me that they we were too small. She said they look like little girl's undies. :lol:

College + more underwear = NEVER DOING LAUNDRY!

I can make it an entire month! (On socks and underwear that is; everthing else gets pretty dirty :oo: )

I have a small butt too, so bring on the small undies. :roflhard:

Never got my Disco either.

I can'tt believe it arrived, I had practically forgetton about it. I got the Mr.Brown colour.
Anyone got a pattern that uses one ball of it.
It' not exactly my style, and I know I won't buy more if it :)

Well I didn't know. So now my waiting game starts. Pretty cool though. You can't pass up a free ball of yarn, you know?

I went for it! Who knows...maybe in two months, after I've totally forgotten about it, I'll get it in the mail and have such a nice surprise! :D

Mine took about 10 weeks give or take to arrive. I had forgotten about it totally.

I received my Mr. Brown last week. He took 3 months to get here. I'm guessing that people who are just now signing up for theirs will recieve a different color. I think at first they were giving out an aqua blue.

I gave my Mr. Brown to my daughter. She used him to knit herself a garter stitch scarf to go with her brown skirt.

I received Mr. Brown three days ago. I think it took about two months to arrive.

It's been over a month since they said they sent my undies out. Must have slapped them on the back of a mule!

Not that I'm in desparate need, mind you.

Don't worry, I haven't gotten mine, either, and I signed up ages ago.

Mine never showed up either, nor the yarn I had signed up to be sent to my mom, MIL, and SIL! LOL

Here is what is so funny! I signed up in December and I was sitting here thinking that sucks it so never came. Then as I am scrolling through this thread again I remember. It came and gave it to my sister.
