I Found Cheap Yarn!

The Knitting Network

I was looking for a few balls of Christmas yarn to finish off a Christmas crochet Granny Square blanket that I started at the end of last year.

I was just using up scraps of what I already in my stash, but I didn’t have enough to finish the blanket in one go.

So, I left it and was on the lookout for more of the same yarn as my local yarn shop, where I got the original few balls, didn’t stock it anymore.

King Cole Glitz DK

It’s usually around £3.49/ £3.59 in other places. I found it for £2.99 at The Knitting Network (it did say it was on sale from £4.29 though). I don’t know how long it’s on sale for…but if you want some really nice Christmas yarn then I would have a look here to see what’s in the sale.

I got 2 balls of the Christmas colour way and 1 just plain red.

I ordered them on Tuesday evening and they arrived on Friday morning, so the shipping was pretty quick. And I got a tracking number for Royal Mail, even though I used the cheapest shipping option.

And I love the fact they came in a PAPER BAG! NO PLASTIC AT ALL!

Well done Knitting Network!

I’m glad I found a new place to buy wool! I usually go to Deramores or Wool Warehouse, but they can be out of stock in what I want a lot of the time.

If you want Christmas yarns start looking now before everyone else does too!

Here is the link to the yarn I bought if you want to have a look yourself:

    1. Yay! It’s one of my favourite yarns and it looks good knitted into baubles too! You could do hot water bottles, hats, mittens…oh so many Christmas gifts. And there is a black and orange Halloween option I found at Deramores! 🙂
