How to Save 56.00 dollars
No, this skein wasn't that expensive. I did save 60% on it though at the store closing. I have to stay outta there! Then again, the deals are not to be taken lightly. This skein will be made into drop dead gorgeous pastel socks!!
Here is how you save 56 dollars. You bring your little skein of prize yarn that you are sending in the age of fast, to UPS and tell them you are sending it to the winner in Canada. They tell you, ashamedly, that it will cost 59 dollars and there are no other options. You thank them. You go to the US post office and mail it for 3 dollars. That is how you save 56 dollars! Cheryl I hope you love the yarn you won. I think it will knit up beautifully!
While I was at UPS nearly choking, another man there told me his mom was a knitter. Here we go again! No not the
chihuahua booties, again! He told me, thinking fondly and talking proudly of his mom. He said she knit MILE A MINUTE afgans
and I should look up the pattern. He said she could knit those afghans while watching TV and with loaves of bread baking in the oven and never drop a stitch. So I looked up the Mile a Minute pattern but I can only find it in crochet. Looks like you knit in long strips and put them together. THis would make it easier on the arms/fingers/wrists as the piece would never get too
heavy individually. Have you heard of Mile a Minute the pattern?
I talk more in the comments!
