I was in my local Big Lots on Friday and they had a new supply of yarn. Beautiful colors and even some sock yarn. Only a dollar for each. I picked out some red yarn to knit a heart cabled sweater. Will post pictures when completed.

Yes, they often have Fiber Festival Yarn for sale at $1.00 each. I have seen it listed here on KP for much more. Happy Knitting!

I just picked some up for fingerless mitts and boo toppers..I am working with it now, I like it, the color is cream with a little taupe in it, it works up in stripes of all things!!

Hummm1 I will check. all I have seen in our Big Lots was all acrylic and call me a yarn snob if you will but I like mostly wool. History of too many problems with stretching, pilling, YUCK! Joan 8060

The yarn I bought is all acrylic...I love the wool yarn but just can't tolerate it for sweaters...even wearing something under it I still itch!

Joanh,
I have about 50 skeins of fun fur that I got at Big Lots for $1.
That is a great deal, and I have used them for many of my projects!

Big lots fun fur makes wonderful chemo caps. Our group has knitted and given away over 700 caps - most made from BL yarn.

My Big Lots is always overpriced for their yarn. Not only not a bargain, but priced more than it would be at Joann's or Michaels. I always laugh and shake my head at $3 for a small skein of acrylic.

I buy most of my yarn at Big Lots...You have to be careful tho, as I recently bought 4 of the same kind... and one of the balls, toward the endof my project was a different color all together. Thankfully I had enough of the main color to finish. Try using about 4 inches of varigated red, when most of the project was varigated browns. I just put the red in my scrap container... Some of my best knitted projects are made with the yarns purchased at Big Lots... Can't always find something that I like, but I just look every time I go there. You never know wat gold mine you will find.

Hummmm. I have a Big Loys near me. Don't remember if they have a yarn spot or not as I rarely go there. I'll have to check them out. Thanks.
