I have read with envy the posts from knitters who obtained a bunch of yarn at a reasonable cost. A few days ago I went to my LYS to buy some DPNs and she gave me a notice of a BIG yarn sale. Went back yesterday for the sale and, as I just finished calculating, got $247.00 worth of yarn for $45.00. Many different kinds and all beautiful!!! Got an additional 5% off because I was wearing my "I voted" sticker--U.S election day!!
