Tell her to to check at Joann's too, they'll take HL's coupons. I went to Joann's today with a HL 40% off coupon and bought a Carron one pounder for $4.50 (regular price is $7.50). The Carron verigated is the same price, just comes in a 10 oz instead of 16 oz. skein. If you want acrylic, you can't go wrong with $$ like that!
But, same goes for other types yarns...using the coupon usually makes it less expensive then even buying it on sale. Stores rarely put the good stuff on sale for 40% off regular price.
What a great idea for a Christmas (or any other) gift. You may want to check your needle stash too....
