I didn't have enough yarn for a full sweater and my daughter wanted something out of the purple loopy fuzzy yarn. The aforementioned yarn is a grand total of 13.7yrds. yes folks thats the whole skein for $5.99 ( i didn't buy it, it was a gift). not even enough for a scarf....so I made a little girlie shrug.
But its way darn cute and she loves it.
