I just got home from Wal-Mart, a store that I try my best to stay away from. Unfortunately, they are one of three stores (AC Moore and Michael's are the others) in this area that carry Caron Simply Soft yarn, which is the yarn I'm using for my granny square afghan. Dan came with me and laughed at my frustration that I "have" to shop there for yarn now. First of all, they had a better color selection than both of the aforementioned craft stores in my yarn of choice. They also sell it for 50 cents cheaper than either of the other stores.
I walked out of the store with a bag of yarn in one hand while shaking the other fist and exclaiming, "Damn these low low prices!"
