Get Yarn From Thrift Stores

A thrifty tip for knitters - look in thrift shops for balls of yarn. I have saved lots of money on my last few projects that way - and it's given me a variety of yarn I could experiment with. (And don't forget yarn goes on sale like everything else, I just saved more than $6 on my next few projects.)

I also buy yarn from thrift stores if I can find any. The last few times I've gone thrift store shopping, there wasn't any. (05/20/2009)

Along the same lines of the poster who said she buys afghans and unravels them, I saw a posting somewhere where the lady bought knitted sweaters that were in really good shape. She would unravel the sweaters to reuse the yarn. She ended up with LOADS of yarn at REALLY good prices.

Better than thrift stores are garage sales. You can find good bargains if you hit the right ones. My sister got 57 skeins for $5.00 a couple of weeks ago. Now that is a bargain. (07/30/2009)

I get fabrics from thrift stores also. Make baby quilts. I also buy yarn for projects with my grands. Yard sales is a good place to find bargains. Blessings, Diane (07/31/2009)
