Great sale at Target
I found knitting needles and balls of yarn at Target today for a dollar apiece. The needles were bamboo, available in just a few sizes -- 4, 5, 11, 13. There were several different types of yarn -- a worsted, boucle, a fun fur -- as well as little ring-binder booklets geared toward each type of yarn that each had four different projects, including bookmarks, scarves, a purse, and an iPod case.

Such a deal -- and might make a nice little gift for someone....

Well, since you start with what pretty much amounts to ribbing, I think its natural for it to look a little wiggly. Mine doesnt now, because I bound the sides together and added tassels.

My Target doesn't have any either. Although, they do have a small amount of knit kits. But I haven't seen those for a while anyway.

The yarns and needles were in an area at the front of the store with very cheap, very seasonal items -- back to school supplies, hair ornaments, football-season themed plasticware, earrings and rings, incense burners, rayon beaded scarves -- all selling for a dollar each.

We have 3 Targets in my immediate area, and two of them had completely different stocks of yarn, while the third didn't have any knitting supplies at all...

The yarn, needles, booklets and yarn at Target can be found at the front of the store in the Dollar section. I bought two booklets but left without the needles and yarn. The yarn is all acrylic, there's a nice color section of fuzzy yarn, boucle yarn and the standard varigated looked like a dk weight. Each booklet is a different color and the needles correspond to the book colors. Only the green needles were aluminum the blue, orange and purple (?) were said to be bamboo, but they felt sort of rough to me more like unfinished maple.

It's definitely worth taking a look see. I got a big smile seeing it there!
