I am looking for self stripping yarn in bright blues/teals/turquiose. I saw a really cute scarf at wet  seal and I LOVED the yarn but I didn't want to pay 10$ for it, but I can't find a picture of the scarf online.

Also I am looking for light pink yarn with a little gold in it, like a scarf I saw at Old Navy.

Thanks for the help.

Michaels sells Patons SWS. which comes in some pretty blues.  It's fantastic self-striping yarn, comparable to Noro.

Will private swap for handspun yarn!

The SWS colors are really pretty but a lot more subdued than teal or turquoise.

Are you looking for a specific fiber or yarn weight?

Not to be the one to rain on you parade, but you do realize that you're probably not going to be able to make the scarf for less than $10?

Not that that's ever stopped me before  Cheesy  Just wanted to point it out, though, since price seemed to be the main reason  you didn't buy the store one.

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.
