They made it look as if Red Heart yarn was not going to be on sale until next week, meaning I could use the 50% off coupon on them, but it is indeed on sale this week. Bah. So I did not go yet, but now I have a 20% off even sale/clearance items coupon, meaning with the sale I can get the Red Heart for $2 a skein – 0.50 more than it would have been if I could get 50% off, but still pretty good. So I’m considering going tonight and getting some Red Heart – though not as much as I was originally planning to get – and a few other things I need. And maybe some yarn to make the Saturn Sweater in the Fall 2012 Interweave Crochet, because I’m in love with that.
And now for random stuff!
I sold that Nyan Cat scarf, and I got a printer – which is so helpful! Now I can print out shipping labels/postage, as well as patterns. And I guess I can keep track of acrylic with a spreadsheet and print it before I go shopping, lol.
Did I mention that I snapped my amigurumi hook the other day? Yeah, since it was plastic, it was only a matter of time. I didn’t want to use metal because they hurt my hands, but with as tight as amigurumi needs to be I kind had no choice… so I got one of those ergonomic crochet hook handles to go along with the metal hook. My issues with metal hooks are gone!
Yesterday I got started on Christmas sweaters. I got half of Chance’s done in a day, which is a good sign I think.
This is using so much less yarn than I thought… I got a buttload of this stuff! But of course I have a lot more ideas of how I can use it…
