Yarn Shopping!

I went to Michael's yesterday armed with a 40% off coupon and a sales flier.
Wool Ease Thick & Quick was on for $5 a skein. I am used to paying about $8 each. I purchased 2 skeins of Black and one Fig. I am planning on trying the yarn out on the Knifty Knitters to see how they look as slouchy hats.
Speaking of slouchy hats, Christine from Made In Windsor informed me that I sold one on opening day! This means that I have covered my cost for the first month (I purchased a half space, which is $10 a month) as well as covered the cost of yarn for that project. Any sales after this one are money in my pocket! If I can sell one item a week, I would be incredibly happy. I am also trying to finish items around that rate to make sure I have enough stock to keep my space filled.

If any of you are Etsy sellers, you should leave me a link to your shop here so I can include one of your items on my I Love Etsy blog.
