I just got an email from JoAnn and they are having a big yarn sale (http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=110288&rId=EM111405ALL). Extra 10% off if you buy 8 or more skeins. Don't blame me if your stash grows. I'm just the humble purveyor of information here :)

I got a little excited until I saw it was Joann's. My Joann's has 4 skeins of hot pink cheapocrapo. Well, I'm exaggerating, but the yarn section takes up two sides of a small isle. If you need fabric, however. . . .

That's a shame, Ingrid! The Joann's over here just revamped the whole store and has about 4 isles of yarn and, still of course loads of fabric...

Yeah our joanns is very "sparse" too.. it's more of a fabric store.. but they have some books..

Speaking of which, which Afghan book did you get.. and let me know how you like it..

I ordered yesterday, got 10% off the whole order, since I ordered more than eight skeins, AND free shipping with a promotional code. Then today as a "thank you" I got the same codes as Brenda, for me (I already ordered what I NEED), and three friends.

So if you need to use a code you've got two sources now!

And Ingrid, try www.joann.com. I bought some Plymouth Encore, TLC Cotton Plus, Bernat Sox, and some acrylic baby yarn ( I think Simply Soft).

They have a LOT of different yarns and some that are only available online. My local stores often don't have what I want either. If I can't find what I want at Knitpicks, (usually because I need a washable blend) then Joann online is a good choice - especially if there is a coupon or other discount.

Happy Shopping :XX: :XX:
