Let me guess. The owner said two skeins weren't enough for a pair of socks, so she put it on clearance and stopped stocking it, right? My friend in NH had the same thing happen. I'm guessing you two shop at the same store.
I too hit this sale and scored some Claudia's - a birght blue/green combo. Now you've got me wishing I'd picked up some pink. sigh. It never ends.
