I have broken my yarn stash diet. I could not help myself after visiting Spotlight today. Isabelle and I decided to make some bracelets, and found some lovely aqua beads to make some too. As I turned around to check out the yarn I noticed the big white baskets full of clearance yarn. Well I had to have a look just in case I missed out on something I really really wanted, and guess what, right, I found some cotton yarn that I had looked at before but the price was too expensive for me. Now as you see in the picture I bought 9 balls of each of the Katia cottons. The white one has a sheen to it, and is Katia Perla, and I think knits up as a 4 ply. The pink and purple colors are Katia Espiga and knit up as an 8 ply. They were only $2.49 a ball, and when I reached the counter the lady informed me that they were originally $8.99 a ball. Wow what a bargain. Spotlight are going to be getting some new winter yarns into their stores so they are making room by clearing some of the summer yarns out too. I know that Zhivago and Country 8 ply are being reduced too, so maybe if there is one close to you and you need to enhance your stash, pay them a visit. I am very glad that I went now, and perhaps the white will be knitted up in the next two months too. Must go now and help Isabelle make her friend's beaded birthday bracelet. Happy knitting!
