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!
