Oh, there was a good point today. I happened upon a YARN STORE here in town. Never knew it existed! I've always gotten my yarn from craft stores like Hobby Lobby or Michael's.

I went in and thought I was going to hyperventilate.

Too. Much. Yarn.

Yarn overload. This had to be 1000 square feet of yarn and patterns and magazines and videos and needles and accessories and OH MY GOD!!!!!

I was too overwhelmed to buy anything other than a magazine and a promise to come back when I have more time. There were some AWESOME yarns there.

It's no wonder at those prices. I have a hard time spending $5-6 for a skein at a craft store. It's probably why I buy yarn the way I do. The cashiers always ask me what type of project the yarn is for, but I rarely buy yarn FOR a project. I find yarns I like, or that are on sale, and I stock up on them. For example, Hobby Lobby just had lots of their specialty yarns on sale for 99 cents!!!! Holy hell I have enough eyelash, twisted and fur yarns to start my own store.

Going into this store and looking around, I was seeing yarns everywhere from a few dollars a skein to fifteen or twenty dollars. I did find a clearance section that I want to go spend several hours in. :)
