Welcome to the board, Sharon! I think your problem of more yarn than time is a common one for those of us in the yarn arts. LOL I'm Angel, 25, from Va outside of DC. Look forward to getting to know you!

Hi Trish,


I try to scope out yarn sales and even went to AC Moore's Midnight madness sale recently (wasn't really at midnight but an after hours sale)


A friend of mine told me to check out yard sales because sometimes you can catch someone getting rid of their yarn pile. She got a HUGE bag of skeins of all colors and materials for under $5!! She said the woman was getting older and couldn't knit anymore so was getting rid of her yarn. Can't beat that, right?


The easiest way for me to save money on yarn is to leave my oldest at home when I go shopping, LOL. I could be going to Walmart for diapers and she says, Mommy, can we just look a tthe yarn aisle? You know where that leads too ;-)

HAHA! It's the equivalent to the toy area of the stores to most other kids! I avoid the toys like the plague. I can't ever get my kids out of there, and they ask for stuff. I made it policy that we do not go to the toy department unless we're looking for something specific. However, my double standard is that the housewares and craft area are fully open to wandering and browsing. I don't always buy anything though...mostly dreaming of what I'd like to get.
