I went into a lys this week to buy my denise needles. (We got our income tax check) It is the only time I have ever looked at the yarn there. I am a sahm who usually has no money for yarn. I usually use stuff I have been given or go to walmart. My daughter started showing me some cool yarn ($4.95 for a very small skein). The lady couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t snap it up. (I can make dinner for 5 for 2 nights for that). When I told her that I usually used red heart she had a fit. She told me that it was terrible yarn and it would fall apart. I told her that I had to have something that would go thru the dryer since either I or hubby would forget and throw it into the dryer. She said that everything would shrink & look terrible after being in the dryer. Later I thought that I should have told her that I have afghans that I made almost 20 years ago that get washed & dried on a regular basis that still looks new. The sad thing is that that is the only LYS that I can find within 60 miles.
PS. Some of the yarn was $9. I didn’t even know that yarn could cost that much. Am I that out of it?
