I went to the Dollar Store yesterday and, nestled in amongst hangers and clothes pins, I found a bin of Patons yarn. They had Evita and Voodoo. I bought 6 skeins of Voodoo in a cream and 4 Evita in madras. Now I just have to figure out what to use them for. :)

Sorry no yarn porn. :( My camera is broken.

I *know!!!* lol I started to get a bit nervous about it this morning... thinking maybe $1/skein wasn't such a good deal afterall. So I went to Joann.com and checked out what they're selling them for. One of them is $5.99 each, and the other was $6.49 (I believe). No matter how you look at it, I should have bought a LOT more than I did. :roflhard:

That's wonderful you got some nice yarn at a cheap price. :happydance: A few montsh ago at my dollar store they had three different kinds of yarn but nothing I'd want to use. I should go back and see if they got something else in. :rollseyes:

It was called "The Dollar Store." I don't know if it's a nationwide chain, but I know there's at least 3 here in Spokane.

I've been debating all day whether I should go back & get more.

Great deal...WTG!!!!
I had gotten some Voo-Doo from Joann's some time back when my sister had asked me to design a "leopard print" scarf for her, the Voo-Doo didn't work for the scarf, but I thought it to be very cool yarn :thumbsup:

Well, that's fun. I just googled them and those look like fun yarns. I always like to squish the pom-pom yarns - they are so soft! You really scored! :cheering: I absolutely can not resist yarn at $1/skein - good thing there's no Dollar Store by me!

We have a store here called Giant Tiger, and a while back they had pure wool, Lionbrand in different gauges, for a dollar a ball. I stocked up! They regularly sell for about six dollars when I see them in the U.S. samm who has also seen those other yarns at a dollar store in Niagara Falls U.S.
