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. 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 THINK how much you could get for one of those almost finished Celtic socks!!

i don't know but the bidders aren't SOOOO new that they should be that crazy. I was bidding on a Pursenalities book that went above the price it would cost for me to go get it at B&N...i don't get people who go on ebay and pay more than retail...lol

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
