I’ve heard some thrifty tips here and there on this forum and I thought it would be nice to have them all on one post. I’d like to hear what you do or creative ideas you have heard from other thrifty knitters. I find this a bit of a challenge, I still like to spend the big bucks at the yarn store :D, but I guess I can justify it by being thrifty in other ways.
Here’s my first tip: When I needed markers and couldn’t get to the yarn store I went to Home Depot and bought some tiny “O-rings” (basically they are tiny black rubber washers). I bought the #7s and paid about 1/10 what you’d pay for markers at the yarn store!
