Check out this Baby Ugg Booties yarn kit (http://cgi.ebay.com/Knit-Kit-Ugg-Baby-Booties-with-Berroco-Suede-Plush_W0QQitemZ8254104254QQcategoryZ108868QQssPage NameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) on ebay.

I did a quick search and it looks like these yarns are around $10 each if I bought them individually, does that sound about right to anyone?

Just curious if it's a good deal - all three yarns (two shades of Berroco Suede and 1 ball of Berroco plush), for $23 plus shipping ($4 for priority or $2 for first class).

Can I find this stuff cheaper elsewhere online? I haven't been able to find any deal better than that so far, but I don't seem to have the yarn sale nose.

I haven't found it anywhere a lot cheaper. That's a pretty good deal. The suede is $8.69 at Wool Needle Work, but that's the cheapest I've seen it.

I'd say that's pretty good...I bought each one individually from Royal Yarns, and used a $5 coupon (just for registering my email). I think the total was $25 for me

Actually, I'm kind of relieved to hear that just because newborn stuff fits for, what, 1 week or so? :lol:

I hate to spend time making something and have it either not fit at all, or fit for like a week or two. I remember being so disappointed when some of the newborn clothes for my DS didn't even get worn.

I went ahead and bought this kit. Thanks for the advice, everyone. At least this was pretty inexpensive and I was able to buy all three at once.
