I would definitely stock up on some red heart at that price! I use a lot of it because I'm poor. I personally wouldn't knit anything really "special" like a sweater or a jacket for an older person, but it's great for baby knitting if you get the softer kind, and it's great for hats.

I will say this, though. I have knit some hats with it while learning, and it does this thing.....I'm sure it has a if you put the hat on and stretch it to do so, the hat stays stretched and looks kinda icky until it's washed and takes its original shape back.

But I have used it to make silly hats, or hats that won't be used very often, mostly just for play for my nieces and kids, etc. I love red heart for non-serious stuff.

I'll save up and buy better yarn for sweaters and jackets, though.

In other words, STOCK UP!
