The Word of the Day is... Cheap!

I have added to the book collection, the yarn stash, and the fabric stash over the last two days. I just can't seem to stop myself. I went to JoAnn's yesterday and yard-saleing this morning. I picked up the Interweave Knits Holiday issue and the fall issue of Knit 1 yesterday.

This morning I paid a total of 60 cents for the other three at two different yardsales. I know that Crochet For Today was a good find, I borrowed it from the library last summer, and never got around to making anything out of it before I returned it. Now I have my own copy, super cheap! The other two are just a leaflet and a holiday magazine from the 80's or something.

I picked up this fabric yesterday on sale at JoAnn's. (I love being a preferred member, you get great coupons and always know about the sales.) The frog print is about two yards of fleece, and the kitties are three yards of flannel for more pajama pants. The yarn is Sensations Margherite, on clearance of course. I have a couple of these in pink and blue in the stash, so I bought the purple to throw in with it. It's a very soft yarn, and pretty colors, too. Again, super cheap.

I love cheap stash-building. It makes me feel good, without being too hard on the old wallet. Christmas is coming up you know, must save for presents.
