Oh and I also got this too:

it's real thick and I have no idea what to make with this.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

To me, possibilities are endless. I do a lot of original work though. I can't pay attention to patterns long enough to ever finish them. Smiley

With my thick yarns I tend to make things like purses with tight stitching, or ponchos & wraps with very loose big stitches.

The pink one looks like a boucle type yarn to me.  But your photo is far away from the yarn, so it's hard to tell.  The bottom one is definately Lion Homespun...love that yarn!  So soft and delicious!
As for peaches n'cream: I make dishcloths out of it!
Hope that helps.
BTW:  What is Value Village?  What other stores is it like?  I live in Texas and would love to be able to buy yarn in big bags like that for cheap!  Would goodwill have anything like that do you think?  Thanks!

So I got up obscenely early this morning and decided to head out to the Yarn Factory Outlet in Listowel. I had my list of things I wanted to make and I spent about an hour there picking them out. I just can't keep to myself how awesome some of my finds were!

I got 5 skeins of Patons Nuance in Marble, and some unknown black sock yarn  for 70 cents an ounce, various baby yarns at 35 cents an ounce. But my real find that has me squeeing in delight are the mill end cones.

I got roughly 5 pounds of Bernat Cool Crochet in Chocolate:

And dude... over 8 pounds (the scale tipped over at 8 ) of Patons SWS in Natural Geranium:

(I've been rolling balls off the cone this afternoon in anticipation of starting some Happy Hooker bunny slippers.)


[edit, hah, I forgot. The cones were $15 each.]

Good for you! That looks like quite a deal!  The geranium looks particularly pretty (and I'm not a "pink" person at all!)

oh my god... i am so jealous. i so wish we had a yarn shop close around here. i have to rely on michaels, joann's, and walmart if i want something quick, although we just went on vacation in wildwood (new jersey) and found a cute little yarn shop in cape may, and it supposedly has another one in northfield... which is still like 45 minutes away lol. but even so, they don't have those humungous mill ends!!!!! oh my god!!!! im drooling LOL
