I went in search at my local thrift store also, and low and behold I found yarn too!

There were some full skeins (they appeared so, at least) and some not full, but all were $0.99 or less for decent colors, I bought all 5 skeins and paid less than $4.  I did, however, pass up the bright neon orange skein.  Wink 

This was a local thrift shop, I'm imagining with anticipation what I might find at the larger "chain" stores.
Thanks for the thrift shop suggestion! Score!

Where do you live that you get yarn at the thrift shop?!  I'm in Northern NJ, and I have yet to see yarn at the local Goodwill... or any Goodwill for that matter.

I did, however, pull in a bigass load of yarn from my mom's friend last night.  Most of it is old and label-less, and smells like it's been sitting in her closet for 10+ years (funny, it has been), but it was free.

If it's free, it's for me!  Smiley

I can never find yarn in thrift stores either.  But I can always seem to find at least one great angora or mohair sweater that's just begging to get recycled and crocheted.

My ebay yarn arrived today - ever prettier than I expected! ^^ It's silk, made in Napal from scraps of saris. It's simply gorgeous... and I've got six good sized balls of it.

Now I just need to think of what to do with it... I have a few ideas.  Grin



The color is really a lot better than these pics show... but I had to do my best without the sun. Sad
(t-storms all day today)





The last one is a little blurry, but you can see the colors a lot better.

*Edit*

I forgot to ask... the only downfall of this yarn is that it smells a little, um, funky. Any ideas for that?

If all you got was one ball - then it's probably going to end up as a scarf or hat - or jewelry.  Lots of jewelry - neclaces, bracelets - hey, you could even do a foot thong or something.

Very pretty though.

Nope, I've got 6 of 'em.  Grin

Still not sure what it'll be though.

Ooooh, I want some of that soooo bad!! Shocked

The possiblilities are endless....I think that yarn that lovely deserves to be used for something you'll use a lot, so what are you either in most need of or what delicious extra would you use most? Personally I think I would make a bag out of some of it, but only coz i saw a bag made of sari silk about a year ago that I managed to not buy but have been regretting ever since Roll Eyes

I also like craftydeb's idea of a summery top....it could be reeally nice Cheesy
