Christmas Knitting & Bargains!

I am working feverishly on my Christmas knitting...



...this years popular knit seems to be the cowl, so I'm making several (including one for myself!) There are so many nice patterns out there I have a hard time choosing which one to make for whom! Oh well, I'll just knit them up...wrap them...shuffle the boxes and tag 'em!
This is the Scrunchable (RavLink) I am knitting from my stash, this is Patons Classic Merino...love the colors!

BARGAIN ALERT!!

This may be a mistake on my part but I MUST share. Maybe some of you already know about it and others it'll be as big a surprise as I found. How many of you have a Tuesday Morning in your area? I found, at a great discount, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Cashmere 5 skeins of it there!!! There were other fru-fru yarns and some really nice angora & alpaca yarns, just not my color choices...and the prices were AMAZING!
Disclaimer~~if by chance you don't find these sorts of deals or yarn in your area (or my area) this is a "by chance" sort of place....either that or I beat you to the store!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'

MJ needs to get back to the office so I can go to Tuesday Morning. You didn't wipe the one out across from a certain relative of yours in my town, did you?! ;)

No Tuesday Morning here either. No anything but Wal-mart here.

I scored 1 ball of cashmere blend and 5 balls of Ella Rae wool! Thanks for the heads up Robin. I never thought of looking in Tues Morn. I also got 3 knitting books at a great price--4.99 each!!

Hey Robin! I was in the Salem Tuesday Morning TODAY (before reading your blog) and scored 3 skeins Ella Rae wool!! Only saw one skein of the Silky Cashmere left and wasn't too interested in it so I left it! I don't shop there often (1-2/year) but I did score some great quilting/sewing notions for me and a good friend for Christmas.

Oh, I'm a Tuesday Morning junkie. I have been going to them since they first came to our area. I scored 5 skeins of the EL Silky Cashmer in Wine and going to two locations was able to get 10 skeins of Laines Du Nord Cashsilk in a pinky/peach color that works great with the Wine. I need to up date my blog and will post pictures of the scarf I made to go with my fingerless gloves that I gave to my friend for Hanukkah.
