:( Need Yarn!!! Going through Knitting Withdrawal!!!!
I was wondering if anyone knows of a good discount yarn store. I have only been knitting a few months and my DH lost his job.We only have my income and unfortunatly its not a whole lot. In fact we will be moving in with the in-laws who live in Rochelle Illinois and I have to keep my job by O'Hare Airport until he finds a job (Which he is a French teacher)
I really miss my knitting time and would love to keep it up but yarn is a little exspensive when you want to do ponchos or fun stuff.
Thanks a bunch
Goodwill is a great resource! Find a sweater that's handknit (the thicker the yarn, the better), unravel it, wash and dry the yarn and you're set! You can even dye it if you don't like the color...it's a little labor intensive but you can't beat the price... :D
What exactly are you looking for? I'm sure I have some yarn left over from projects (it would be plain old Red Heart), and if you could use it to make blankets, sweaters, dishcloths, or whatever I'd be more than willing to send it to you. I mean, if it's just going to sit around here - as I'm not talented enough to do things with lots of different yarn colors other than making strips of different colors - someone might as well get some good out of it.
If you are interested, let me know - I'm in IL, too, so the postage to get it to you shouldn't be a huge amount.
