So sometimes you’ve gotta just dive into the mall. I am a wonderful window shopper! I looove to go and look here, and there, and everywhere, and sometimes get a pretzel and a drink, and I can make that last aaaaalll day. Only problem is… no one else in my family is like that. LOL They all gotta go here and get this and get that. So I hardly ever go in and window shop anymore because I’d end up broke broke broke!!! So I had to go to JoAnns to get one skein of Caron Pounder yarn to finish a blanket I’m working on. I had two coupons, so I got my new latest and greatest fun thing to get. All different kinds of yarn bagged up in one pound lots. The past few weeks I’ve been getting these with my 40% off coupons. Here’s the one I got tonight… one pound of browns (pic of the front of the bag to show you how it comes)
The browns look more like that first picture but I wanted to show you how mashed in there the skeins are packed too. Sorry for the sucky photos. I’m taking these on my Hellbox Prime and then uploading them. Works kinda good for no flash, no cropping, no nothin. Here’s the scores from the past two weeks. Lace weight yarn with a twinkle to it that Miss Emily (my orange fanatic) Had to Have!!!! I’m going to run it with another yarn, and make her a nice big snugly shawl out of it!
Here’s the worsted weight baby yarn I got also. Already balled it up, and have started using it for hats, so there was two more balls of this but it’s already in use…
And then there is Miss Cassie’s pick (blue of course). Don’t know what shes planning on making out of this, but at just under $4 for a pound of yarn, she could get two hats, and a scarf, and some fingerless mitts out of it, and still have some left over!!!
After the yarn store we went across the mall to a shop with all kinds of nick nacks, candles, and oddities, and the kiddo’s found a wooden chess table, with wooden chess pieces as big as my hand on it. There were signs taped to it that if you play a round of chess or checkers, make sure to put the pieces back where they belong. So my crew of four stood there playing chess for about a half hour til they closed the store. 😛 They wanted a chess game soooooooo badly after that!!! So, when we ran to Crazytown to do a little shopping we swung through the toy section, and got a chess game! Cheap ugly plastic version with stoopid little horrible board was nine dollars. We went with the wooden version for almost twice as much, but it should last them waaaaayyy longer. Came with checkers and chess also, so it’s gonna be a quiet week of strategy around here! 😀
