Last weekend I went to my LYS for their annual Superbowl Sunday Sale. In addition to finding yarn on sale, I got an extra 10% off for arriving during "tailgating hour" and then another 10% when I chose a piece of candy from the basket at the register. Touchdown!
The yarn I scored is an assortment of single skeins for my next MOM project. My mom gave me the book Knitivity as a Christmas gift this past year, and I suggested that, if she would like, I would knit her a piece each month in 2012 so that she would have a set for next Christmas. She was very excited and I suggested that I would try knitting one figure and see how it went before making a firm commitment to the full set. I'm going to start with Mary and we'll see what happens from there.
