On the hunt to spend....


Granted it wasn't vey much $$$$. I had a coupon for 50% off at AC Moore's and it was good only through last night. I went, I searched and I barely bought! My intention with such a nice coupon was a book. Couldn't find a single one that I wanted, I tried. So, after at least 45 minutes of wasted time I came home with a set of #2 DPN's. Sure, I can always use another set but I was so hoping for something more substantial. I was recently labeled a yarn snob by more than one person (!!yikes, it was a whole group of people!!) so I suspect that was the reason I didn't by any yarn. The only yarn there I do buy is Paton's for felting and I have a drawer full. When I got home I told my husband Larry that I had only spent $4. He said, "No, you spent a little more than that....... gas!"

Since I mentioned felting I'll post a picture of one of my favorite bags. The Market Squares bag. It's in the book, Bags, A Knitter's Dozen. Entrelac was not as hard as one would think. If you've been resisting, take the plunge. No matter how much it doesn't make sense just follow the directions and it will turn out. I actually did the Knitpicks Tote first for practice! Go for it!!!

Isn't this always the way? Your blog looks GREAT! I love the colors you've chosen, and I'm now eyeing that shawl with covetousness and greed! Glad you've joned the fun.

Yup, I've seen both bags. Your's felted a lot better than mine.

Cool - you can do a link now!

I haven't been to AC Moore in forever, and didn't realize there was a 50% off coupon! (sigh)

I love that bag! I got the Knitpicks pattern last year, but haven't gotten around to doing it yet... guilty that I haven't finished DH's to-be-felted vest. I think that better be my next UFO Resurrection.
