all this for $20?



yup, you read that right. i got ALLLLL the yarn in that pile for $20. a friend of mine told me that there was yarn @ big lots, so you know me, i promptly went to see what i could see. there was a big yellow bin with a ton of yarn. it had been pretty well picked over, but i found 20 balls of this bernat galaxy yarn for $1 apiece. here's proof:



i don't remember the names of the colors i got but i now have a bunch of a nice reddish color, some in a dark gray color, and a few in a purply color. i've started knitting up the red in size 15s. i need a nice new looooooooog red scarf. this stuff fits the bill.



i just can't pass up a bargain like this...especially on yarn!

in other news, mz went dancing again last night. had a great time at this little spot called Due Amici. it's an italian restaurant, but they had a cozy little area adjacent to the eating area that had a dj and salsa dancing. the fellow i danced with the other night called me up and asked me if i'd like to go. i did. and we danced. a LOT. i was sweating in places that i didn't know i -could- sweat. but it was soooo much fun. a couple of folks mentioned that we dance well together, which is a fine compliment since i don't think i'm all that good! but practice makes perfect, right? riiiiiight.

speaking of practice, i'd LOVE to go to chicago in february. if at all possible i am SO there!

  1. I hit up Big Lots a lot since I found out they sold yarn. You can find some great deals there. Looks like you've scored.

    Guess where I'm going after work.
