I am a new knitter, so needless to say I didn’t have any yarn to work with. I happened on a thrift shop that had just gotten in an enormous pile of yarn. There was a wide variety of some very nice stuff. They sold it to me for TEN CENTS a skein!!! I got 85 skeins for $8.50! Instant stash! The best part is that I am not as worried about making mistakes because I did not have to drop lots of cash.
85 skeins?! Are you kidding???
Time for you to join the Stashbusting Club over in KAL. :teehee:
Do take a picture for us!

Yeah my mom and I looked at eachother and started piling up the yarn as fast as we could!! I guess the lady who runs the place didn’t realize she could have gotten a lot more per skein!!
And exactly when are you going to be out? :whistle:
