cheap yet good yarn

Thought I would give you guys my latest tip! just got a recent shipment from www.Knitpicks.com great sock yarn also thought I would see what there peruvian wool was like at $1.79 a skein, colors are great it is a great yarn to use for felting.  I have been making felted saddle bags as gifts they are large enough to hold magazine or book wallet cell phone small knitting project and they look cool not girly. I use a bone button and icord loop as closure. however right now Knitpicks is offering no shipping if you type socks in their promtional code box.  P. S. their sock yarn is $3.75 a skien thats just over $7.00 for a skien of yarn!!!! happy knitting . Just incase your wondering I have no afliation with this company just a obbsessive knitting who likes to share.  Oh yeah should tell you if anyone ever gets to Seattle there are two shops I just discovered that are really cool.  The first is called Hilltop yarns it is in a charming craftsmen bungalow!!The other is on Bainbridge Island chruch mouse yarn and teas.  This one is a knitters wet dream great yarns teas. Needles, if you love exotic needles look out! Just a 30 minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle walking distance to the ferry dock !!!! anyway have fun

Madison Get Together

Are there enough people in the Madison, Wisconsin area to merit a get-together? I'd love to get to know other knitters in the area. Since anywhere in Southern Wisconsin is accessible, let's talk.
