Little Obsessions

Today we stopped in at Hobby Lobby. Well, stopped in isn’t quite right, we drove an hour to go to Hobby Lobby. I know some people don’t care for their politics but I shop places to keep the local people employed. Anyway I didn’t plan to buy any yarn but as it happens I did. They had these sets of yarn in about 8 different colors groups. I’ve wanted to knit a striped cowl but couldn’t justify spending big money on skeins to just use a small amount. This seems like a good way to get what I want (stripes!!) for a very reasonable price: I used a coupon and this was less than $5!

    I love Hobby Lobby yarns. I’m waiting until they have their 30% off all yarns again, which seems like it’s every other week :P, to get some yarn to make 2 toddler’s aran sweaters for this fall. 🙂 Fortunately I live 5 min away from one, sorry you have to drive so far.

  2. The closest HL is an hour or more for me. Same with Micheal’s, A. C. Moore and a decent sized JoAnn’s. Just a fact, not a complaint. Well, sort of…

    I love Hobby Lobby and I’m blessed to have one (and a Michael’s in the same shopping center) a few blocks away from me. What is the fiber content of that yarn?

    That’s a cute set. HL is too far for me and I don’t like how they don’t have coupons so I just go to Micheael’s and Joann if I really need to.

  6. There’s an HL a few miles away from me and I’ve never been to it yet because Joann’s is closer! I guess I should check it out one of these days, looks like you got a great deal.

    I love HL!!! I just can’t go in there because I would buy ALL. THE. THINGS!! And it matters not what other people think about their “politics”, you are the shopper and you can buy what you want where you want. I am tired of people demanding we accede to their view points. Believe what you want, shop where you want, forget what others think! I don’t demand people believe what I believe, I just keep myself to myself and endeavor to be kind to all. Now I have to go check out that yarn.

    That’s pretty! I am one who won’t shop there… I would rather spend my dollars at an LYS and keep her employed. But I don’t begrudge you your choice! The yarn is pretty and those small amounts would be tempting!

  10. Very nice yarn set, and what a great bargain! We don’t have any near us – we have Joanne’s and Michaels up here, as well as couple LYS. I do go to Michael’s sometimes 🙂
