Shhh... Don't Tell Anyone
I have a secret....
Please make sure you are not sharing this with anyone else.
Really, it's a yarn secret and you really do not want to read further.
It has to do with a really good price on really good yarn.
Lots of yarn.
And I want to keep it all to myself.
Fabric Works in Superior has 1500 yds of natural, undyed white, 100% merino Aran weight yarn for $55.
I'll let you think about that for a minute because I think it's pretty darn unbelieveable. If it were broken up into 200 yd hanks it would be $7.33 per hank. That's a sweater's worth of yarn for $55.
Have I mentioned I want it all for myself?
I bet the owner would ship where ever you would need it shipped to. (if you asked real nice and paid for shipping, she's nice that way)
I really wish I hadn't blown my yarn budget for the month. I'd better call her right now and ask her to set aside some. Hopefully I can make enough on my crazy garage sale this weekend to pay for it.
