I got 8 of them, it was only the red (pretty shade though). Then I grabbed two blue for $3/skein. I smiled all the way home.

Makes me wonder:
1) Should I run over there?
2) Should the blue have been on sale for $2/skein, too?


Either way, congrats on the haul!

Oh my, what a deal!

I would have had to ask why the blue was $3..... who know, maybe it was an error.

Very neat!

sometimes they only mark down certain colors. my ac moore had a couple of colors of sugar and cream marked down for only 0.75, they were pretty ones too =)

What IS merino wool? :think:

Wool from merino sheep. It has a longer fiber which is why it's somewhat softer than other wool.

I did go buy more. I bought 8 that day, but when I got home I remembered seeing a pattern for it for a sweater & thought "hey I'll need more than 8 for that" So I went back the next day & bought 6 more. Figured 14 oughta do.
