Sounds like lots of lys are having sales .... but for web shoppers such as myself - I got a flyer from webs (yarn.com (http://yarn.com/)) about a big sale, as is Little Knits. Kyarns (http://www.kyarns.com/) is having a sale too, I think. I'm sure there is more, but those are the stores I have bought from in the past that keep me on their mailing lists. Can't wait to see what other's post too!

Argh! This is so unfair! Not only did I not get a google alert about this sale, but I didn't even get the alert about this post. And yet I get the one about the dead sales associate and the one about my message about the dead sales associate. Blasted google alert function!!!

I can't believe that I left my debit card at school! I'm kicking myself now because I can't buy some malabrigo :( Hopefully it will be on sale when I get back

In addition to the excellent sale Webs is having that someone mentioned,

Personal Threads (http://www.personalthreads.com/newsite/) is having a sale 20% off everything in stock.

Also Ram Wools (http://www.ramwools.com/) will be having a sale 30% off everything in stock starting, I think, Jan. 3rd. I don't think I'll be able to resist this one.

Also Yarn4Socks (http://www.yarn4socks.com/servlet/StoreFront) is having a sale of 20% off everything in stock, too.

Red Bird Knits (http://www.redbirdknits.com/) is also having a sale 30% off yarn and needles, 40% off books. This is a great one, too.

Everybody is having a sale these days, trying to make me broke. check each site for when their sales end.

I agree, and fortunately irony is one of my favorite kinds of humor :)

And I got to the Malabrigo in time, according to the notice I got this morning that my order shipped (which I doubt because it is Sunday, but I take it to mean that they had what I ordered and it is safely taped up in a box waiting for tomorrow).

Check out Cherrytree january sale at discontinued brand name yarns.com. Their shipping costs are kind of high but looks like some really beautiful yarns.

That's about how much I spent when I stopped there on my way to work on Thursday! :teehee: I thought I was going to have to tackle Miss Violet when I got there and she was lurking around the Malabrigo. As it was, she was after colors I wasn't interested in. Julie, the owner, was trying to convince me to get the pretty cashmere I was fondling whilst I waited for my turn to hand over my money to Joe, her husband and the world's greatest enabler! She said "On sale it is only $110!" yeeeah.... no. lol

But for anybody who wants to know... Mountain Colors cashmere is GORGEOUS and supah soft!

Anyway I have told myself I will NOT go there again during the sale. We will see how I do on that. :)

I bought some silk after brendajos linked me. ^_^ I haven't done much with silk - I'm pretty much a merino wool/llama/bamboo/alpaca gal, but hey, why not?

Don't know about sales, but if anyone goes to Jimmy Beans Wool and places an order and puts they were referred by a friend and my email address (bob@macomb.com), I can get a 15% discount on some patterns I want to order......hehehehe
