I'm a shopper. And one who doesn't pay full price for anything. So, when I saw these, at 20% off when bought as a set, I was hooked. Finally an interchangeable needle set that meets all my requirements: nickel plated, smooth joins, screw on tips, soft cables, lots of sizes... Slightly more expensive than the Denise set, and way less than the Boye's. Not that I need more needles, but I couldn't resist. It's the new Knitpicks set. Looks very well designed.
The best shopping news ever - Trader Joe's is coming to Bellingham! Now if they'd take that leap over the border I'd really be excited.
The only place to buy Regal Silk and other good yarn at lower than usual cost? Fabulous Yarn.
What's better than a bargain? Free. These are this year's poppies. The purple ones come from a woman in my knitting group. Her mom grew these before she died and she made a habit of distributing seeds each year to people who admired her purple poppies. I've continued that tradition. The pink ruffled ones came from a nearby elementary school's garden.
Thanks to everyone for your comments on the wedding sweater. It made the anguish worth it. There's nothing like the support of others, knitters and knitters-to-be. Watch out you non-knitters, I have my eye on you.
