Does anyone know who carries discounted Adrienne Vittadini yarns? I love their patterns due to the beautiful stitches and shaping. The yarn is yummy as well but expensive for my budget. Is there such a thing as discount yarns for AV?

Thanks,

Laura

My boss's favorite designer is Adrienne Vittadini and I can't afford to buy her anything made by them but I am going to knit her something with their yarn!

I was able to find it discounted here (http://www.knit2purl2.com). There might not be too much left, but I was very satisfied with the quailty of service and the prices.

If you live near Des Moines IA (and are willing to admit it) there is a LYS here that has some of this yarn on sale.

Here (http://www.yarn.com/yarns-knitting/manufacturer_main.html#adrienne) is another source, but the prices might not be low enough!

Good luck!

Thanks for the links, Sara Jayne. I am in North Carolina, not Iowa but could you tell me the name of the store and city that has it on sale?

:thumbsup:

Laura -

The store is Purls the Yarn Studio (http://purlstheyarnstudio.com/index.html), located in West Des Moines Iowa. I'm not sure if they still have the yarn on sale, but they might since the yare making room for new stock.

Good luck!

nope - they are both Jack Russell Terriers.

Here is a better picture of them. The one on the left looks a little different now, he has a longer beard and his hair has grown a lot longer and wavier (and their eyes aren't blue, that's just the camera!)
