Gina, how many skeins does it take to make one scarf? They are really pretty. I like crocheting. The new inventions in yarns are amazing.

craft shows

Try Walmart for epsom salts again. They have a 5 lb bag in the first aid section. Don't buy it from the bath section, you'll pay more. Not sure how big of a bag you're looking for though.
