Homespun yarn is $3.33 this week at Michaels, on sale 3 for $10. This yarn is normally $5-6 each, even at Walmart. Don't have a Michael's nearby? Have your local Walmart price match the ad. This yarn is great for nice, heavy throw blankets.
Be at the ready --- Craft Stores typically mark down their holiday merchandise very soon (or perhaps the day of) Valentine's Day. Plan to stop in later this week to hunt for bargains!
