  1. I've seen it a bit lower than that on sale. I'm not sure about the shipping, since I mostly buy in-store.
  2. The peacock color is absolutely my favorite!! It's gorgeous!
  3. That is interesting. I bought some not long ago (month or so ago) and it was the same as usual.
  4. I Love This Yarn is my go-to yarn. I have a hobby lobby in town, so I go often! It is so soft and gets softer with each wash. It doesn't fuzz up like simply soft tends to.
  5. I've had good luck with the I Love This Yarn from hobby lobby. It doesn't fuzz up like simply soft. I quit using simply soft because it fuzzes and looks terrible so quick.
  6. Finished up my sweetheart ripple!!! Went with 5 colors instead of 2 and LOVE the way it turned out!!!! http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr310/jenniferlynnsmith030981/1347402702.jpg
  7. That is an insane amount of stitches. One day I'll do a HUGE afghan, but that's not going to happen any day soon! Maybe when my kids start getting married in like 10+ years I'll do one for them.
  8. I think I have it figured out. I WANT to do a bedspread size afghan, but money-wise, that's not going to happen right now. I think I'm going to do a 4x6'. I've looked at other patterns, most of which are for baby ripple blankets, and they are using 6 skeins for a 36x36" blanket, so I believe that 10 skeins will do a 4x6'. And I REALLY hope that the amount of each color works out! But, since I will most likely be doing red heart super saver, I won't worry too much since they don't have dye lots!
  9. I'm planning doing solid colors. I'm going for a fade effect with the colors, so it's going to be 4 shades of one color.
  10. The ripple I plan to use will be in dc. I'm going to do it in 4 colors, with the pattern of stripes being 4 rows of color A, 3 rows of color B, 2 rows of color C and 1 row of color D. uggg, I hate trying to figure this stuff out! I know I'll need more of color A and B than I will of C and D. So, if I get 1 skeins of D, 2 skeins of C, 3 skeins of B, and 4 skeins of A, That will equal 10 skeins total, which will end up 70 oz of yarn. Does that seem right? Thanks so much for your help!
  11. Well, crap, so 16 skeins of supersaver would be too much? They are 7 oz each, 16 skeins is 112 oz, which is 7 pounds, right? I'm so terrible at figuring how much yarn I'll need. I'm always terrified I won't have enough so I buy WAY too much. I don't want to do that this time, since we are on a tight budget right now and I will need quite a bit of yarn to do a big afghan!
  12. I'm planning on make a full size afghan and I have NO CLUE how much yarn to get. I'm not really going to be using a pattern, just doing a ripple, so I don't have a pattern to use for how much yarn to get. My gauge is usually pretty close to what the yarn calls for. I plan on using Red Heart Super Saver yarn and an I hook. Can someone give me an idea on how much yarn. I'm thinking around 16 skeins of super saver might do it.
