I was so tempted to try a skein of With Love from Walmart on Monday.. 6 oz ball would give me at least 1 cowl or other small item.. I debated while looking around and finally listened to my "gut" and passed on the yarn for now. Whoa fall sale at Herrschners email arrives this morning and YEP With Love 1.99 a skein vs. $3.97 at Walmart!! Even with the shipping I save 1.07 per skein. WIN WIN Me!

Can't beat that, we are told to always listen to our "gut" feelings. Good for you for following that advise.

But shipping might take up the difference.

That's a good feeling when that happens. My luck usually is, after I buy something, I then see it on special. 🙄

Usual story of my life but also when at a store normally short one skein or there is only one skein and would need more these days. I order most of my yarn on Herrschners now.

Whoa there, Tyger! You won and then you lost!? Hope that's not contagious..
I have not bought yarn in 3 years or more...stopped counting and even stopped looking! No worry for you...that is also not catching! 😉🤗

Well done....I've been pretty good deleting most of my emails with yarn on sale, but I couldn't resist the Drops Baby Merino at the Wool Warehouse....I just received my yummy squishy parcel today and I'm now going to order some more before the sale finishes as I need to make a few baby items for a new grandbaby due in March 💕💕
