What A Deal!!

Froggie and I ran out to do a quick yarn crawl and we really lucked out today!! We hit the local Hobby Lobby to check out the variety of variegated acrylics....our timing could not have been better!

I got all this yarn for $6 and some change! The most expensive skein was 99 cents. Most were 79 cents....one was 49 cents and then the two smaller ones were only 26 cents. Yes, I am addicted to these dang bags and there will be lots more of them to come. I have no idea what I'll do with two smaller skeins (sport yarn)...it'll probably sit in my stash for who knows how long.

I know what you're thinking...Omg...more bags. (insert a groan and eye roll) This is my teacher bag #1. It's actually for her interpreter and they all chose their own colors. This one is Red Heart Super Saver in Earth & Sky. I like these colors myself...hopefully she will too.

The teacher's assistant chose these colors...well, she actually picked red, yellow and orange but this is the closest thing I could find. It has her colors but some pink and purple shades as well. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Sunshine Print.

And last but not least....her teacher's bag. Her choice was red and white. I couldn't find anything with just red and white so this is, again, the closest I could find. I like the striping effect. This yarn is Red Heart Strata in Passion.

I know you're all probably sick to death of these bags....so sorry but I'm addicted. Of course I am now knitting with band-aids on two fingers...they are so sore from pushing the tip of the needle. lol

I gotta find something else to knit between bags...got one test knit to do but that won't take long so I really need something else too. Good excuse to go on Ravelry. :P

Hugs!

Your bags are absolutely gorgeous - no eye rolling going on here. I am almost ready to investigate the pattern and try it. I think I am too much of a chicken though. Hmmmm. . . a few more photos and I just may do it ;)

I could never get that lucky with the yarn....my saying lately is with my luck I might as well have none...

Hope your fingers get to feeling better.

You are really starting to crank these out I'm impressed. I love the 1st bag with the blue/brown colourway. What did you use for that?

Oh, and since you asked, photos of blocked shawl will be posted today.

These are absolutely adorable. I love the brown and blue bad. Someday I will have to get the nerve to try one. I am always afraid to try something new. Keep up the beautiful work.

Ah, these are great! Hoping over from Tea's blog. Glad to find something for all this acrylic I've been hording. And these look great in the variegated too! I'm sure all the teachers are going to love them.

Great find on the yarn! I wish I could get out to the Hobby Lobby, but it is a little bit of a drive.
