Oh, it's happened to us all. It's tough to come upon something like that on sale when you don't have a project in mind. And if you're like I am, you can't resist the good deal, even if that means only buying one skein. ;)

Yup, we've all done it. Grab what's on sale and then wonder what the heck we'll do with one or two balls of something. :rollseyes:

I did the same thing. I bought 2 skeins of yarn that was on clearance and spent 10 bucks. Then I decided to make a baby blanket and had to get more yarn. Of course its discontinued so I went to ebay and ended up spending $18 more to be able to finish it. :doh:

Some savings!! And I'm willing to bet it'll happen again. :rollseyes:

That's why you now always buy 1000 yards of any yarn you like, right Ingrid? bwahaha.

I did the same thing a few weeks ago. I found some yarn on sale at the dollar store ($1!!!) and bought 3 skeins. I started making a shawl with it and it turned out I could have used another 2 to make a sensational one. :( They didn't have any when I went back.

whewwwww !!!!! I thought I was the only one that did that, and tried to cover it up w/ a blanket of many colors... like the coat of many colors? lol Oh well.... now I just buy 5 or 6 of everything at least, lol but w/ out fail I'm still either 1 skein short or have 1 left over.. it must be that I've ticked off the knitting gods or something.. oh well.. my stash is growing, lol

:XX:

P.S. now daughter has changed her mind again about what yarn she wants.. tell me.. when do daughters get easier? mine is 22 and still driving me nuts.... :wall:
