The price of gas is going up up up but the price of Cascade 220 just went down down down. On top of that you can get a price break of 20% off on the purchase of 10 skeins of the same color. Now to get you started thinking about projects, how about some Summer Cabin Slippers (aka Duffers-revisited). Imagine a basket of these sitting right inside the door? A pair for every size. It's not unimaginable, a pair of these can be knit up in a day. The pattern is even available in childrens sizes. The largest adult size only takes one skein for the foot color and one skein for the sole color. The yarn is held double and then felted in your washing machine.
These slippers are designed by Mindie Tallack and looking at her ravelry site I found another pattern:
Have you checked out Craftsy's Free Class on Grafting? You should if you haven't yet.
There, that got your attention, but it is true.
I just got in a new shipment of Classic Elite's Liberty Print. I says to myself "Self, time to run a special"
The more you buy, of the same color, the more you save.
That means if buy 10 balls of a color, you are really only paying for 8.
That equals free yarn. See how I made that work?
Liberty Wool Print is considered by some to be a worsted weight, I classify it in the DK weight family. It looks thicker than a DK but that is mostly loft (aka air). There are things about it that I really like

What a busy few days I've had. I (and my manly crew) got the store moved out and it's new temp location is starting to take shape.
My handy handsome hubby, who will henceforth be called H3, finished the trim in my office.
I sat down this morning ready to take on the world when I got an email from Craftsy for a free lesson on Kitchener Stitch (aka Grafting) so I got another cup of coffee and just about an hour later I was amazed at the new stuff I learned. I thought I already knew almost everything I needed about grafting. Well, I didn't but now I'm sure I do. This is a free lesson so hop over to Craftsy.
I also previously took the free lesson on short rows and I really improved the look of my short rowing because if you are not careful they can look more like a mistake than something you intended.
