I hope this post will be a lesson to me!
When you see yarn on sale, it is not necessarily a good buy if there are very few yards in a skein or if it has to be dry cleaned. Even if you buy all of what they have, it will not be enough to finish a sweater and it will be too much to make a vest unless you want to look like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and their Tweedle Daughter in matching outfits. When you go back to buy enough to finish the sweater, it will all be gone in the colorway you chose, which was obviously the best one since everybody else bought it too. Even if you go to every Michael's in town, you are doomed to failure.
