Today is the last day of August and second to last day of another yarn sale over at Crafts Etc. All needlework supplies (yarn, threads, hooks, needles, etc) are 25% off, and if you order totals $25 or more, shipping is free. Because I do a lot of charity crochet work, I love these sales, which they tend to have every few months.
I have to admit that my tastes have gotten a bit beyond acrylic Red Heart Super Saver yarn, but you can’t beat it for making afghans, so I usually use these sales to load up on specific colors of it that I know one group I make squares for uses a lot. At my local craft store, a normal skein of Red Heart goes for $2.59, but on sale, Crafts Etc. has it for $1.94, and that includes both the 5 and 7 ounces skeins.
I also stock up on baby yarn. Though they don’t carry my favorite baby yarn from Bernat, I like the TLC Baby Amore yarn for baby ghans, which they have for $4.12 for a four ounce skein.
I really like natural yarns, so I got some cotton yarn to make some wash clothes. I also splurged this time and picked up some bamboo yarn, which I’ve never worked with before. I have no idea what I’ll make with it, but I’m sure I’ll think of something.
