I've never done a haul before... probably cause I really don't buy stuff that often. but today my mom and I went to Michael's (and I drove!) and found clearance yarn, so I thought I'd share. we intentionally went to Michael's so I could pick up some yarn I've been wanting to make a blanket with. it's kind of crazy, but I've never actually crocheted a blanket before. I've quilted one. but never crocheted. I'll letcha know more about my blanket once I actually start crocheting it. ;)
it looks sort of like a regular size bag, but it's actually the biggest bag they have. hah! I've never in my life bought so much yarn at one time (8 skeins).
here's what I went for - Bernat Softee Baby and Loops and Threads Snuggly Wuggly. I'm making this blanket. they were all $5 each, which is a little pricey, but I really love the colors. I'm hoping I can get away with one skein each (I'm just making a lap blanket) but we'll see.
and here's my impulse buy:
5 skeins of yarn... but seriously, at 95 cents each, how could I not? (one of those was even 88 cents.) I tracked down the original brands and found out they were all either Loops and Threads Impeccable or Vanna's Choice. I thought these colors would make a pretty scarf. :) I don't buy stuff just because it's a good deal (I even ended up putting some yarn that was $5 off back because I couldn't think of anything to make it with) but this I know I'll have super fun with.
overall the total price was a little over $17. I went on their website a few days ago looking for a coupon, but was a total idiot and forgot one today. but my mom had her 15% off teacher card, so that bumped the price to $17 instead of $20.
anyways... more hauls - yay or nay?
