Huge sale!

lol yeah it does take a while. i completed my order at 3am and i think i started it at about 1am! granted i do get distracted online and stuff but i did look through every brand and all the yarns to see what was available. and i wanna go back for more but i am behaving! :rofl:

That’s exactly what I did. It’s an extremely frustrating way to shop! The deals really made it worth it though.

woohooo!!! :cheering:
I am actually glad there wasn’t alot left by the time I got there, I might haven spent my mortgagee money :oops: :oops: As it was I spent $90.00

Thanks for the tip!!!

YOu have to look more at all the yarns. They are all SORT OF on sale. I just happened to be at an LYS this weekend in Los Angeles, and I can tell you that many of the prices they have listed for their sale yarns at this website are seriously high. Yes, there are some good deals, but their initial retail prices are bumped up, I think.

I don’t know about the original prices…I didn’t pay much attention to that, but I can tell you many of the sale prices were at or below cost.

I guess my LYS has better prices than I thought. :teehee:

I bought two types of yarn, both were at least 50% less than my LYS.

Plus some of the brands that place has (Fiesta, Art Yarns and Alchemy) are SUPER expensive. I’ve looked into putting Fiesta into my store but I just don’t think many people are willing to spend that much. The yarn is gorgeous but just $$$!

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that the sale prices are high. I just noticed that the retail prices they listed for some of the yarns seemed high. Essentially I was just saying that maybe there trying too hard to make their deals look better.

You could be right about that. Some of them down about 75% but then at cost…that would mean regular is 25% over retail.

The regular retail prices on the brands I mentioned though are just really high to start with.

Well it is basically the fault of all you ladies that I buy expensive yarn. I just bought my first malagrigo (two hanks) a hank of 100% silk from debbie bliss. And a hank of Socks That Rock.

Some days I wish I could back to knitting with just acrylic. But alas, those days are long gone. Really, you only have to finish one fancy garment with a fancy yarn and you can never go back! :teehee:

oooh that debbie bliss pure silk is wonderful! I have a bunch of it and still need to find a perfect pattern for it. i am thinking i want to do a “summer scarf” with some of it … a skinny one ya know. i just have to find a pattern i like…yummy

Mine is the sage green and I am so in love with it.

Man, those were some good prices. I had to finally give the Alchemy Synchronicity a try at $8.33 a hank. That’s crazy! I always miss the beginning of their online sales, and when I get there, most stuff is already sold out. Probably better for my wallet, anyway.

I just spent $96, like it was nothing!!

I spent that much this weekend too. Only my stuff wasn’t on sale. :pout:

I think I am just going to check this site regularly for sales.

Just so’s y’all know… I just called the store to get an idea of how long it is taking them to ship so I know when to start looking for it and not be frettin’. She said they are really still working on orders from the first day of the sale. She doesn’t have a full time staff “over there” so they are packing boxes as fast as they can and are sending about 100 boxes a day right now. So we will all have to be patient as they are all doing double duty between the yarn shop and the shipping area but they are working as fast as they can. The orders are being processed as they came in and I don’t know when the sale actually started…didn’t think to ask really.

I know it was mentioned on another board on Thursday…and then people were saying that things were already out of stock. My guess is that it started Tuesday or Wednesday. :shrug:

I resisted the beautiful yarns on sale…no stash increasing for me right now…It was an incredible test of my willpower.

Ooooooh, I resisted for SOOO LONG… but I finally gave in and bought some yarn! I got some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, the textured one, and some Noro Kochoran for a scarf for my hubby. :slight_smile:
