The boss is away! July 26, 2007

Filed under: yarn — Emily @ 2:05 pm

On of the yarn stores in my area is having a big sale this week, with different things on sale every day.  They’re calling it “The Boss is Away Sale”. 

Today the sale was 40% off of sock yarns.

Panda Cotton.  Red.  Sorry for the shoddy picture, red is just so difficult, and it doesn’t help that I can’t control the sun.

Tofutsies.  Thought I’d give it a try.

Here’s the first of my unexpected finds.  Apparently, there’s a local lass names Andrea who hand-dyes yarn.  Her brand is Crafty in a Good Way.  This colorway is named Forest.  Sorry about the flash!

Here’s a better shot of the colors in the yarn.

Same brand, colorway Plaid.  Again, the camera wouldn’t behave and used flash on me.  The unflashed ones were just too awful, though.

These two yarns have a put-up of 560yds for 4oz.  And full price was only $15!  I bought the last two hanks in the store.

Rio de la plata

Finally, this is Rio de la Plata Merino Sock, Multicolor Ply.

Isn’t that gorgeous?  The colors are very Easter Egg-y, but I just couldn’t pass it up. 

All of this yarn would have been over $80 retail, and I paid just under $50.  I feel pretty good right now!

    It’s all very lovely! My ‘find’ was a ball of taj mahal in the sale bin tonight for only $2. It’s navy, not so great, but will add to the scraps I have to make a hat for somebody. But I only had $1.93, and my pal and LYS owner said that was fine!
