haha! i was at Target (having not yet read this thread) and i didnt believe it was really a dollar, but i brought it up and asked for a price check. i couldnt believe it!  i got some gorgeous green and yellow yarn and that was all they had, other than the kind that looks like little flags on string, which i dont really like, lol. But wooohooo! from now on anytime i am near a Target i am scoping out the 1$ area, lol!

I'm going tonight to see if our Target has this mythical $1.00 yarn, etc.

I'll report in the morning Grin

Tragically, my local tarje doesn't carry "$1.00 dolla to make you holla" yarn Angry Tongue Cry

Ahh, nice. Is that the gold that's really thin with the little tufts of fuzz? I want to use it to make a dressy scarf for my boyfriends mom, but I was afraid it would knit up really open, even with little needles. That looks great though. It looks dense enough for a scarf.

Yeah, it's the gold with the little square fringy things.  It's definitely dense enough for a scarf if you use small needles.  The pattern on the label calls for size 13 needles, which I can't imagine for such thin yarn.

Say, as long as we're on the subject, my targets both dropped the prices of their clearance knit kits because they just got in the winter kits, so all the kits with cotton yarn for yoga mats, cotton bags, cotton baby things, etc, has been marked down again.  I think they're now about half what they were originally.

Cool. When I saw size 13 on the label I thought I had read it wrong at first. That stuff is about as thick as embroidery floss. It would look ridiculous on size 13 needles. I swatched a little last night on size 3 and 5 needles. I think it'll look nice. I need to find some needles with sharper points though. Mine were a little too blunt. It was kinda hard to deal with.

Just to add my 2 cents-- the Target in Arnold MO (Burbs of St. Louis) has some yarn too.  None of the boucle, but the fuzzy stuff and the confetti yarn.  Sure, it's not the best yarn out there, but it's pretty and CHEAP!  I got the little pattern booklet for the fuzzy yarn, I'm going to make a bunch of the little purses for Christmas gifts for the little girls on my list.   I picked up size 4 and 13 bamboo needles too.  For a buck each pair, I'll gladly do a little sanding, it'll be a fun experiment.

I've been practice knitting with my fringe yarn using size 4 needles and it comes out looking almost like fake fur.  It would probably make good stuffed animals; nice and soft.

And here's some of the super soft fuzzy yarn done on size 4 needles:



The stuff wasn't easy to work with - I found myself pulling up loops of fur, rather than loops of the actual yarn. It's thin as thread, so I don't see that I'll be using it unless pairing it with something.

It does make a light, breezy, fuzzy-soft fabric, though. Excellent for paper embellishment and what-not.

FYI, my target reduced their beads kits (gemology kits in a tin) from around $14 to $3.48.  While some of the accent beads are chinzy, the main beads are pretty cool. (I picked up the kit with the goldstone rose.)

i just went to Target yesterday and my friend and i were looking around the $1 section. i was so surprised to see they had yarn and needles and even little pattern books FOR ONLY $1!! i bought a pattern book for the fuzzy fur yarn, a pair of 4 needles, two skeins of the red/orange fuzzy fur, and two skeins of the green/yellow boucle yarn. i am so excited! they had all the different varieties of yarn at my Target. i can't wait to get more!

FYI I am making a shawl out of the butterscotch colored yarn holding 2 strands together as I crochet & there are big differences in yardage of every skein I have used so far. So if you are making something that needs a specific amount you may want to buy 1 extra just in case.

Any other completed projects?

I've made a hat using the gold/brown eyelash & a strand of beige together.....very cute

2 skinny long scarfs out of the rainbow and another out of the lime green/yellow boucle
