Where to buy reasonably priced wool yarn?
Hi all - this is my first post here. I used to knit a lot in high school (my own sweaters) but haven't done it in a while. I recently saw the most beautiful afghan in a decorating book - it was patchwork squares of thick wool yarn knit in a basic stockinette stitch. I'm dying to have one just like it and I think it would be pretty easy to do, but when I started to look for wool yarn, I had some serious sticker shock. I can't seem to find it for less than $5/ball and since I'd like a pretty sizable afghan to cover my queen sized bed, I'm looking at a lot of skeins. I cannot afford to shell out $200 in yarn for this afghan! Any suggestions for where I might find reasonably priced (i.e. cheap) wool yarn - worsted weight if not bulky? Like I said, I haven't knitted in a while and I guess the price of yarn has gone up in the last (cough) 20 years (cough) or so. Thanks so much!
