A whole tub of yarn for $15!
I found a posting on Craigslist in my area for a huge tub of yarn for $15. The lady said there were over 50 "spools." Of course I'm going into this assuming it will be a variety of Red Heart Super Saver and fun fur, but if it is, I'll at least have a whole mess of yarn to use for charity knitting.

But lets all keep our fingers crossed that it's all malabrigo, lorna's laces, various cashmeres and other equally delicious things.

Off I go. I'll post an update when I get back.

I recently just had a score from Craigslist too, yard sale, she said she had a ton of yarn, she did! 57 skeins of various patons yarns, at least 6 of each color and all the same dye lot! I gave her $40 for all of it, at least $100 value!

I got all of it home, but I haven't gone through it yet. Most of the skeins don't have the bands on them anymore, so it will be a bit difficult to determine what is what. Pictures eventually.
