$42.00 for unfinished sox?

I am sure I am missing something here ... is this yarn very very special??

I just looked up the price and the place I checked has it for $6.95 a ball. I don't understand this either, maybe the yarn patterned out the Virgin Mary or something? :D

WOW. :shock: I have NO idea....the bidding started at 1.50. Regia Mini Ringel Colors sells for about 6 or 7 bucks per skein. That color, however, is discontinued. WOW.

just....WOW!!! I thought that it must have been spun from the silken hair (that has only been washed in rose water) of young virgin daughters of Egyptian sheiks or ..... I just don't know what to think...I'm SPEECHLESS...ya'll know that never happens!!

Well, basically the socks are already knit for you so I think the winning bidder took into account the value of a handknit pair of socks rather than the yarn they were made from.

I can usually knit a pair of socks in fingering weight in my free time ;) in about two weeks, so if you look at the time spent making a handcrafted pair of socks and put a value on that time/skilled labor that went into them then I feel the price would be appropriate, at least for the one willing to pay it. Aren't you worth at least $20.00 a week? I bet you are!

I am from that old school that always looked at a nice item and thought to myself, "hey I could do that" and then did it myself or just kept thinking about doing it myself until I lost interest :D
