This week we have Filatura Di Crosa Charly on sale.
This is soft. I don't know what kind of sheep they use but it isn't the itchy kind. Great for hats and scarves!
Whenever I think of Charly that jingle from a perfume ad in the 70's comes into my head. You know the one where model Shelley Hack gets out of a sports car and strides confidently into a restaurant where she throws her hat at the maitre d' and the piano guy who is singing the song smiles and nods at her as she sits down to meet her handsome date, and you knew you just wanted to be that woman.
Oh, you don't remember? I guess I really am that old.
Back to the yarn. There's 65m/71yd in each aran weight ball. So two or three will make you something.
You want the price you say?
Regular price is $7.00
Sale price is
Yes, that's right folks. Less than 2 bucks a ball. You can't buy a coffee with that. Think of what an inexpensive hat or cowl you can make with that. Out of quality wool! Who says knitting has to be expensive.
Now remember the sale is only for what's in stock. No special orders and once it's gone, it's gone. So don't be kicking yourself next week.
