yep, its true...just got back from target and they do have yarn in the dollar section!!! :happydance:
They only had this one in different colors and another soft fuzzy one that I did like, but didn't seem like as good a deal. The fuzzy was something like 56 yards and .13 grams for $1.00...somewhat comparable to "regularly" priced fuzzy yarn. I don't know if fuzzy is quite right...kind of like fur...similar to the baby booties by carmell in the finished items thread.
This one is called "funky fringe yarn" and has 29.4 grams/1 oz. 90 yards, 100% polyester and it suggests size 13 needles, which of course I already have but had to buy a pair since they were only $1.00. I'm almost positive it will become a scarf since I don't think it is very appropriate for anything else. OOOh...maybe carry with a different yarn???
and notice the cute Italian dishtowels
