So did you just buy scrap lots? I guess I need to stalk spots some more, there weren't many there...

Re: where to find yarn for scrappies

There are sometimes scrappy exchanges, too. I've seen them on Ravelry, where everyone sends in a skein to the hostess, who divides it up into mini skeins for everyone.

Ooo... that sounds interesting! Of course, I need a skein of some good quality yarn first. So where would I find this... on the message boards?

I wonder if we could do a scrappy exchange in the swap section here?
