Fiber Fever

Tempting piles of luscious fiber
I purchased three of these large (800 yards) hanks of
superwash merino for future projects
See those orange signs on the edge of the table - marketing at its
best! The signs changed each day, but actually said the same
thing - "(insert day of the week) ONLY - 50% off"
Regardless of the somewhat misleading "Sale" signs, the prices
were reasonable; the fiber content and color selection were varied.

I saw "Friday ONLY" signs on Friday; "Saturday ONLY" signs on Saturday, and I am positive "Sunday ONLY" signs were attached to the tables on Sunday. The vendor definitely understood the bargain-hunter's psyche.

  1. The yarn is pretty, but the sales tactic is deceitful.

  3. I haven't done much with yarn for the last few months, but seeing all those colors makes me think maybe I should pick up my needles or a hook again soon.

  11. There is some good looking yarn there! I'm afraid I would have been more than tempted to buy 50% off yarn even though I am trying to stop impulse buying. It's hard when it comes to yarn!!

  12. All that yarn makes my fingers itch to get to it, and start making something. You must have had fun.

  13. Clearly, you are immune to the dreaded "yarn pox" disease, which causes one to buy LOTS of yarn on a whim, especially when it is on sale. I, on the other hand, am NOT immune, but rather display the disease quite often. It tends to lie dormant until KnitPicks has a yarn sale, and then it flares up with a vengence... I hope I am not contagious. I have infected SEVERAL people with the "quilt pox" and they now are displaying multiple symptoms.
