This weekend was so crazy with everyone running around and camping out the big shopping deals... me?... I was on the other side of the register checking out customers.. and I have to say.. people were pretty nice.. there are always a few of course (the few unhappy customers were the ones that didn't take time to read the coupons and had higher expectations on the discount they were getting) but on the whole everyone just looked like they were having a fun time running from store to store buying up all the goodies. I had a few coupons myself and ran to Joanns after work to pick up this yarn I've had my eye one for awhile. It's similar to noro although it doesn't have as many color changes... It's more monochromatic and is it's an acryilic wool blend. (It's half the price too)I have a few projects in mind already.. I can't wait to start one.


















This was a good buy also.. so I couldn't pass it up especially with my minuscule yarn budget. It's a felted purse kit.. with 4 balls of wool yarn and everything u need to make it including both crochet hook and needles.. and the thread !!!.. I don't think I'm going to make the purse though.. I just liked the yarn and for $7.97 I had to buy it or kick myself all the way home.

















Two-tone shrug #2 is finished and I started the next project on my list of holiday knitting already... I also squeezed in some dish cloths for my Mom's good friend.. I like the zig-zag pattern that the cone yarn is making.. compared to the kind of stripy pattern of the ball yarn.. Well I'm off to do some visiting and will show you my next project sometime soon.. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.. (^_^)

Oooh, that yarn in the kit is so pretty! I also took advantage of great sales this weekend. After buying for family I treated myself to 50 skeins of Paton's Classic Wool at JoAnn's ;)

I'm interested in what you think of the Debbie Mumm yarn after you've worked with it and washed it. I've made a couple of projects with Noro recently and loved it! Maybe Joann's ha a contender!

i just recently made a scarf out of the debbie mumm yarn. maybe it was just the skeins i had, but they had a bunch of knots in them. and also there's this black thread core and the yarn will twist and coil around it, making it difficult to work with.

Hmmm... I've read what Amanda said about the Debbie Mum and that sucks! But I really like the brown you have there, Mike's asked for a stripy brown beanie and I can't find any Noro that satisfies me.

I've heard so much about the Debbie Mumm. I can't wait to see what you'll make of it. Like Amanda, some people have had issues with the core, but for others it was no big deal. I should probably head over to my Joann's to check it out for myself.
