I was wondering how many skeins you would need to make something, they all looked so small.

I'm working on a sweater in the pink worsted weight, and it's taken two balls each to knit the front and the back...I bought seven for the whole project, so it looks like it'll be right on! (I'm about a 13, if that puts it into perspective).

On to sleeves...or homework.

Definitely sleeves.

It's like a koala bear crapped a rainbow in my brain!

The yarn's now a further 30% off at my local Target, though not all of the yarn is there. So, 70 cents a skein. I bought two of the soft blue (no idea what to do with it) and two of the creamy soft yellow.

My Target was 50% off!  I got all the yarn for my daughters Christmas doll + enough for 5-6 outfits for the dool for $6!   Grin

My Target was 50% off too.  I bought an assortment of the ribbony and acrylic yarns to use for scarves, add as accents to felted projects, and when all else fails I'll incorporate them into the bears for the "Motherbear" project.  Granted its not the greatest yarn, but for the price it sure was fun to buy a bunch!

Mine was 50% off today, too, but they only had the regular acrylic worsted, which I think still wasn't worth the price, and the gold-colored confetti stuff and a bunch of the furry stuff.  So I bought furry stuff, which I had not purchased before because the balls were SO small.  Still might not be worth the price comparatively, but it is SO soft, and I see a soft grey bunny and a soft purple puppy coming soon!

Cool - there is a Target near where I'm staying when I hit the US on Friday.  Hope they still have some goodies left - I have yarn gifts to buy for a few people and need them to be easy on the pocket...

I am so boring I think people should be interested in me.

Eep, 50% off?  I walked by their dollar section yesterday but didn't look closer.  I did notice that it was condensed down a lot.  I already have enough of it, but for 50 cents?  I need more!  hehe.

It's worth buying the fun fur stuff just to give to your cats.  You don't even need to unwind it, just leave it in it's wrapper.  If I put mine out, my cats will play for hours with it.  They'll practically unhinge their little jaws so they can pick it up and run around the house with it.

lol, I wish I could do that.  My cats would EAT it.  I don't want a huge vet bill for digging out some 50 cent yarn out of their bellies.  Wink

We have one of those cat toys that has a little furry "tail" that's kind of feathers, kind of fun fur-texture.  I left it out on accident one day, came back to it and it was a skinny wet string.  All they do is lick the stuff, and chew and rip at it to get it off of the 3 foot plastic stick.  At least they're not stupid enough to try to eat THAT too.

Those little mice that have the leather tail.  My cat Loki LOVES that tail.  He chews it off and eats it.  WTF?  I can hold the mouse in my hand, he's standing on his back legs w/ his jaws clamped around that tail, his paws wrapped around my hand and I can LIFT HIM UP like that.  I'm not even touching him, he's holding himself up by the paws and mouth. 

Why can't I have calm cats that don't have to destroy toys, that are perfectly content to just bat something around for a while instead of devouring it?

I have been wanting to make them a little toy out of some furry scraps though.
