A while ago I saw this story somewhere in facebook. This woman crocheted her own wedding dress for only $30... not only couldn't I believe she could get yarn this cheap for a whole dress, and the result was amazing. All the fuzz about her dress made her write up a pattern, because she had just "winged it" on her daily bus commute over a period of 5 months!
Then I saw the pattern was for sale on Ravelry I had to make it. The yarn she had used I didn't know, and I couldn't find it in any Danish stores of webstores. I couldn't even find it online in Europe, and if you order from outside the European Union you have to stay below $13 before shipping otherwise you will have to pay extra taxes on imported goods, which are really expensive in Denmark. But I found a place where I could get 4 skeins for just $12... the shipping was almost $10 dollars... but still $22 for a dress is still really cheap if you ask me.
