Because ‘my’ ACMoore only lets me use one coupon per day, I buy just one package of yarn from there at a time. Only once do I remember getting two one-pound bags of mill-end yarn in the same visit, thanks to DH’s willingness to wield a second coupon for me.
But now, for the first time, I’ve come out of ACMoore with a real Yarn Haul, a full dozen skeins (over five pounds) of RHSS!
All Yarns were on sale for 30% off, plus the Sunday paper held a coupon for $10 off any purchase of $30 or more, including sale items!! Soooo, these ended up costing me $1.38 each, which is better than half-off the normal $2.99. Yee-Ha! Giggle, giggle.
I also got two balls of ‘Rainbow Stripes’ by Patons Kroy as a treat for me, me, me!
Ooooh, such fun rainbow-striped socks this fine wool sock yarn will become. And only $5.06 for the pair!
Next, since I was going right past Michaels (another one coupon per day store) on my way to run another errand, I quickly ran in with their 50% off coupon, also from Sunday’s paper, and got one skein of RHSS ‘Country Blue’.
Now, if you’ve read more than a few of my blog entries, you already know that I also took a few minutes to check Michaels’ clearance area, where I found 80-page journals for just 25 cents! The social workers who help our area’s foster teens always have journals on their wish-list.
Since I like to mix donated, thrift store and Brand New yarns when I design a ripple, this thirteen skein addition to my charity stash will probably last me well into the winter months. Just think of aaaaaall the ripples it will become!
I’m particularly looking forward to playing with these two colors of RHSS, the new Coral and the rich Dark Orchid, which I’m not sure is actually new. Maybe it’s just been a looong time since I’ve seen it in a store.
