If you’re in the DC area, run, don’t walk, to Knit Happens. I made my way there today just because. It was a store I had never been to and I wanted to see what kinds of yarns they offered. Boy, did I luck out. I got a whole blanket’s worth of yarn for 0.95 cents a skein. It was Arucania Nature Wool Cotton, and totally worth it. Their sale yarns were from 55% to 95% off, with excess knitting circulars at $1 a piece. At that price I can afford to buy a magazine for one pattern, and I did. I got Rowan Classic Weekend just for the blanket pattern. On further study I also found 2 sweaters I’d like to make sometime in the future.
All in all, a great trip.
