New Wool Yarn

After successfully finishing my first two wool soakers, I was eager to get more yarn and make more.  My first couple of skeins of yarn were bought at Michaels for $4.99 apiece.  I figured I would stop by A C Moore to see what their selection was like.  They had many more colors, but they cost $5.99.  I bought two, because I knew I wanted different colors from what I'd seen at Michaels.  But then I stopped by Michael's anyway because I had seen some yarns there on sale for $2.49.  I grabbed four skeins and went up to the register to pay for them, expecting the total to be around $10.  It rang up to $2.08.  Being the honest type of person that I am, I let the cashier know that the total was incorrect.
"No ma'am, "he replied, "They're on sale for $.49."
"Well, then can you hold on a minute?" I asked?
I raced back to the aisle and grabbed a couple more of each color giving me a total of 13 skeins.  It rang up for just a little over $10. 

I can't tell you how happy I was to grab such a good deal!  Talk about being in the right place at the right time! They're not necessarily my first choice of colors, but that's okay with me!

Wow! Great deal at Micheals! Maybe you could use the tan for some covers to sell, when you open your Etsy shop, since you totaly should :)

I still haven't figured out about whether wool yarn is unlanolized (I'm allergic to lanolin) Do you know whether it is or not?
