Not much knitting to report today, but I wanted to share my fun crafty purchases from the last two days. I had dinner with a friend last night and took advantage of the restaurant’s proximity to Joann. I *had* to: I had coupons! Of course I found stuff either on clearance or on sale, but still. I used one coupon for some size 9 16″ circs, since that was the only size I was lacking. The rest was too good a deal to pass up. Look at these fun booklets that were only $1.97 each! Buttons were 40% off, and I managed to restrain myself to just ONE button! (There was a woman in my way so I didn’t get to browse very well.) I also went through the button stash my mom gave me and there were some fun ones in there. These were my favorites. Today we took the boy out to a new (to us) art supply store downtown. He and my husband are both amazing artists; I’m a wannabe. I have no drawing/painting talent whatsoever, but I desperately want all the art supplies. I typically console myself with pens and notebooks and today was no exception. I have a problem. I freely admit it. It’s an addiction I have no desire to break.
Good finds, esp. that big button! My craft shopping is coming up this week.
Oh lucky you! No craft shopping for me. I have so much stash that I decided to go on a yarn (and other supplies) diet. *sigh* stupid me!
I’m trying hard to be good! I’ve severely restricted my yarn purchases, so when I do feel the urge for retail therapy, I look for things that help me use the yarn I have (i.e. needles and patterns). But really, I needed none of this. Good luck with your diet! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
About needing something: This one doesn’t work in English but in German
Wool = Wolle
want = wollen
Do you see the pattern?
Haha! I love that!
