i get ads and coupons from Joann's all the time. the problem is that i don't really get my yarn there anymore (unless of course it's for a baby project of sorts). i was in need of #8 circs which i was planning on getting at my LYS, but since we were a block away from Joanns i went there instead. they're having some sort of firefly sale and their needles are all marked down 40%. i found an interchangeable circ set that was originally $69, but on sale. now, i know it's not the Knit Picks Options set, but it does have needles from #2-#15 and several different lengths of cables. and how can you beat the price when it's on sale so much?!? i tried using my 50% off coupon, but couldn't. A) it was already on sale and B) they couldn't ignore the 40% to give me the 50% off. no biggie. i bought a set of #8dpns and some hooks for our keys and still walked out only spending $44!! and even that wasn't my own money, because i still had a money on a gift card from my birthday. WHOOO HOOO!!!!
so that said, i finally cast on for Grow With Me on knitty for Tara's baby. two projects being worked now. i really need to get a move on!
