Default Oh... I finally got it...

My "Mr Brown" Disco yarn, Mary Maxim catalogue, and three Freebie patterns
(I already had two of them... the funky looking purse was the only one I
*didn't* have) came in the mail yesterday.... I forgot to mention it last
night. ) It's a neat colour, but with only one skein that size you
really can't make much... guess if you want to make something with it you
just have to go buy some more. So is Mary Maxim the only place to buy that
particular type of yarn? I was in WalMart this morning, and while they had
some funky looking yarn (eyelash, and other feathery type stuff), I didn't
see any of the Disco yarn.

Me, too, yesterday. Walmart tonight had Disco, not that colour, and so
did Michaels, but not that colour. Neither of them had the turquoise
either; they must have distributed them all out free rather than to the
stores! I used Nora's free Aqua ball with some Bernat Satin in white
and knit her a little scarf, holding one strand of each together. She
didn't mention that it was too short, but it definitely would've been a
better lenght with even 1/2 a ball more. If I'd realized I'd be
getting the brown I would've held onto her turquoise and made her a
striped scarf. (Hey Nora, wanna send it back for me to frog and do
over?)

I've seen it in our Michael's and the Meijer stores (midwestern
grocery-department store chain)

Well... it could possibly be in the next aisle... I only looked on the one
aisle where MOST of the yarns were. I guess I'll have to have another look
when I go there again! )

I was able to knit a scarf using my one free ball of yarn. I normally
make scarves of good length with the 50 gram balls of the novelty
yarns. They are not extremely wide but for that type of yarn they
don't need to be wide.

I have found disco Mr. Brown at Zellers, Micahels and Walmart maybe
the smaller stores don't get the selection that we do.

My late mother once came back from a Holland visit with one rather
tiny Skein of Mohair thread , that was supposed to be enough to
crochet a rather netty shawl , and indeed it was enough ,,,,
to all our surprised faces ,,,,

Neat! Well, I guess it depends on what you make with it and the type of
pattern. )
