Mom called from Michael's today...it seems there is a sale on yarn, some of it being up to 80% off. I explained my dilemma...I am on a yarn diet until Labor Day. I can not purchase yarn except to finish a project. (I did purchase 3 skeins yesterday, but it was to finish a prayer shawl. I should have purchased even more!)
Well, there was a suede yarn at $1 per skein...in a color which was my MIL's shade...so Mom purchased all 17 skeins for me. She decided this was a gift to Betty from the two of us. LOL...I also heard she was getting other colors also, as I told her what she picked for me was my birthday present. As my birthday is coming up, that isn't too bad a deal for either of us!
