It's been a bit hectic here at Happy Acres and I'm ready for it to STOP!!! Everything seems to be in hyper speed with extended family kicking in for good measure.
I hadn't knit on anything for a couple of days and it's amazing how that really makes a difference! I KNOW it does, but when I haven't been able to knit for a couple of days, it just reaffirms it.
So while I haven't been as active as I'd like, I DO have some fiberly goodness to share.....
First of all, I have finished sock 1 of pair 2 for my niece.
I wasnt too sure how I was going to like it when I started it, but I'm happy with the final result. Baby Girl likes it as well so my almost 4 y/o niece should be happy with it. If not, it can wait for my almost 2 y/o niece. I've cast on for sock 2 today. With any luck I'll have it done by the wknd.
I've also added to the stash. I won on SAM 12 for the month of August and this just arrived a couple of days ago.
Nice huh? Zonda does a nice job in sending it too.
She could just stick it in the bag, but she makes it look pretty too. Thanks Zonda!
But wait, there's more.
My JoAnn's had a grand reopening sale. The first 50 people to walk thru those doors would get a $5 gift card. I pulled into the parking lot at 8:59 and I was #42 to get my card. Plus I had a 50% off coupon which was burning a hole in my pocket.
What did I get?
Some Full O Sheep for a charity blanket I'm working on. I've been wanting to try this yarn for awhile now, and this was the perfect excuse to get some. Retails at $4.99. 50% off coupon drops it to $2.49.
As I was looking thru the clearance bins, I came across this lonely guy...
He was only $.97. Yes you read that right, ninety-seven cents!!!! How do you NOT get it???
Lots of other things jumped in and out of my cart, but by the time I left I only added a magazine
Don't you just love that polar bear on that boy's sweater??? It's the reason I got it. I'm trying to see if I can add it to the one for the mom. It's just too cute for words.........
With my gift card it was like getting an additional 50% off my total purchase! The yarn ended up being free and the magazine was like 20% off. I LOVE those kinds of deals!!
They are offering this deal again tomorrow and Saturday. Wonder what other treasures I can for free?????
