Crochet for the Financially Impaired

Any of you crocheters out there ever wanted to buy some of the finest yarns to have ever been spun, only to realize that you're hurt in the pockets?  Well, read on.

I'm sure you know this scenario:  You go to a craft store or a novelty yarn shop and spot the yarn you've ever so desired.  The yarn is so beautiful, so lustrous.  That is, until you look at the price tag.  The cost is so high that even a skilled pole vault athlete couldn't jump over it.  Trust me folks, I've been in that situation.

Instead of killing your wallet at a big box craft store or a novelty yarn shop, try going to your local thrift store or upcycling place to find some good quality yarn for a few Washingtons ($1 bills if you don't know your presidents).  Or, if you're one of those internet junkies, then go on Craigslist and see if you can find somebody who's destashing.  You may just luck up on that special yarn you've been searching for all this time.

Happy hookin', y'all!
