First Friday Clearance Bins...-

on the first Friday of every month, I put lots of great yarns at deep discounts in the back room.

These may be odd lots of skeins or bags of discontinued colors or even entire lines of yarns that I've decided to get rid of to make room for new inventory. So often there are several yarns in multiple colors that there is enough quantity in to make full garments....even afghans.

Some may be single skeins of hand-painted luxury yarns by Art Yarns, for example, or Blue Heron in which you get enough yardage in 1 skein to make a scarf or shawl.

And other yarns may be 1 skein of this color and 2 sks of another color. While these sometimes require a bit more imagination to use (unless you just need to knit a baby hat or booties which can be done with 1 skein!) , they are great buys and can be the most rewarding projects.

So mark the Frist Friday of each month on your calendar and come on by! This pile of yarn on the left I picked out of the back room last month and then gave to my sister with a pattern and she knit up the very wide and doubled cowl shown below.....and I still have enough yarn (she didn't even use 2 of the yarns in the cowl) with what was left over to knit another narrower scarf....all for just $24. The yarns are merino, silk, alpaca, handspun angora....just lovely!
