I ran into AC Moore yesterday to pick up a few packs of craft paper since they had them on sale 2 for $5.
At the end of the aisle was a display of these pricey markers I had been coveting for months. I look at them on Amazon so often that they pop up all the time in those ad thingys that are so annoying but I just couldn't bring myself to spend the money.
They are alcohol based and gradient so they are made for blending. I almost walked right by without noticing the sign that they were on sale-HALF PRICE! Usually $14 a pack, they were being offered up for $7.88. I filled my cart with all the color families that caught my fancy. Then I had terrible regrets....that I didn't buy more. I sent The Mister back today for three more color packs. I was doing a happy dance all day and I almost slept with them under my pillow.
I also recently discovered these adorable teas being sold by Adagio Teas. I drink their stuff all the time but had no idea they had 87,000 different loose tea blends with several of which having something to do with knitting.
I bought quite a few of the sample tins and have loved every one so far. What's knitting without a cup of tea? Is it even possible to knit without one?
