lol, really? No... I didnt even check the prices. I am trying to find a site that sells them. If they sell it in town, I'd like to go feel them at least. I don't like the LYS here, and I can't feel the yarn in knitpicks haha.

I believe the cashmere was $35 and that the other two were $45. Way too much especially when theres Elan and Knit Picks.

Odd.....I can't find the pricing anywhere where it used to be. Maybe they are rethinking their price schedule to a more reasonable amount. Either that or I am missing it somewhere on their site.

Maybe they took it off because people were really being put off by it. With those prices, I don't expect it to last very long.

I was expecting around 10-15 bucks too.
