Tasty Thursdays: Got Soy?

So over the weekend I was just poppin' in and out of a store to pick up a few things real quick. You know how it's just supposed to be a 10 minute shopping experience.

I swear I said I wasn't going to swing by the yarn section....but what I needed to get was near that area...so this caught my eye

And that it was on sale sealed the deal! :op Yep I got me some B.ernat Soy Natural Blends yarnIt was lookin' good and feelin' good so I just recklessly snatched up 3 balls not sure what I was going to do with them.
Yep it is 50% acrylic, BUT the 50% soy intrigued me! Haha! :o) Did I mention it was on sale?!?

What can I make with only 3 balls of this yarn??

I didn't get the chance to mention how I saw this last week when getting my curacao yarn.

I have just never seen anything like this with my very own eyes or laid hands it on myself, so I had to take a picture:

Ur uh....I am NOT spending $68.00 on a hank of yarn........even if it is 100% cashmere and over 200 yards by a local indie dyer....as very purrrrty as it is....just not happening! At.all.

So yeah that $2.99 'sale' soy yarn is looking real good right about now! LOL ;op

    I think I have some of that too... I know I have the Bernat Cashmere, which might be a luxurious little first sweater for Sissy, and then, a hand-me down to Abby.

    Wow. And I thought the Lorna's Laces LACE was expensive...

    Hey Stacey,

    I like that soy yarn! It's very nice! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

    $64 for a skein of yarn! It better knit itself! LOL!

    You have a good day dear!

    The soy yarn might make a nice pair of fingerless mitts.
    Carmell said...

    I'll take the 2.99/yd. $68/yd... too rich for my blood.

    $68 would buy 22.5 balls of the sale-soy - just a thought should you go crazy and make a run for the cashmere when you have cash in your hand.)

    Which store had the soy on sale? I've been looking at it (Joann's, Michael's, AC Moore) and wondering when the sale would start.

    I had to look like 17x at that price tag... $68 bucks, yea i would have left it in the store too! LOL

    You could probably do a really nice scarf and hat set with 3 balls. maybe even mix in a little something extra from your left overs stash for a trim effect.

    Where'd ya get the soy?? I've been wanting to check it out (been looking for it at Michael's), and that first photo makes it look yum-my! If that soy was mine, it would become cabled mittens and a hat. :D

    I couldn't bring myself to spend that much on anything - even cashmere. I want to know who does, and what they make with it!
    a friend to knit with said...
    yep...fingerless gloves. a hat.
    and oy! 68 dollars!!!!
    Don said...
    Let me see...3 balls of yarn, I know, you can make a couple of wristbands with matching headband.

    The joke was funnier as it formed in my head.

    Hmmm, I'm thinking that yarn might work for the baby aran pullover pattern you were displaying from Lion Brand a few blogs ago ... might not be as flaky. Or, a lovely scarf for yourself!
    Ava said...
    Baby stuff! 300+ yds ought to be enought.
    diddlinaknits said...
    oh heck ya-i totally understand needing that yarn after looking at one with a $68 tag-Whew and i whimper and debate over $28 skein of sock yarn. i could never justify spending that much.
    Hope you like your soy yarn!!
    gold said...
    68 DOLLARS !!I don't think so!!
    Yes the 2.99 looks mighty fine to me!
    Can't wait to see what you make with it.
    Karine said...
    68$$$$$$!!! I may be a fiber snob but nuh uh!
    Deborah said...
    $68 bucks, but it sure looks nice!
    Debora said...
    I had to look at that picture twice to make sure I was seeing the correct price! Who pays $68 per skein for yarn? NOT ME EVER!!!!!
    BrownBerry said...
    Ooooh, nice haul. How about a tank top or a nice cropped short sleeve cardi? You could ask Santa for the cashmere perhaps?
    moo said...
    Never seen soy yarn! I know you will come up with something great. Happiest holidays to you, Stacey. Talk to you in the new year. Keep in touch, please.

    after reading about cashmere, it's definitely a better buy to get the soy blend. shoot, you could dye that to a beautiful crimson color. i can definitely see it as a scarf or scarf & hat set!!! ;-)
    Sheila said...
    Thanks for the Blogiversary Shout-out. That soy is definitely looking good - honestly I'm a true to heart acrylic gal and having some soy in the mix is a plus.
