[color=blue]Thank you all for the nice comments.
Hilary, I was definately sight impaired. I could barely see the end of the hook to pick up dropped sts.
Bonnie, I made a very lacey sweater with that yarn when I was pregnant with my second daughter.
Ummmmmmmmmmm, that was 1971. UGH
Not only did Sears carry yarn, it was wonderful yarn.
They also had a fabric department (where I worked PT) and sold their own line of sewing machines.
