I managed to visit a Hobby Lobby today while I had a little time to kill. Wouldn't you know it? They were having a 50% off sale on knitting needles and I wasn't carrying much cash on me.

I managed to pick up sets of DPNS in sizes 6 and 8, a 29" circ in size 10, and 4 skeins of Sinfonia sport weight yarn to knit some socks.

If I'd had more cash on me I'm sure I would have bought every size and type of needle they had that I don't already have. :rofl:

The gal I've been teaching to knit stopped by and picked up a bunch of supplies to get her started. She was very excited by the sale!

Glad you were able to pick up a few things. :cheering:

yeah I have found that already having the needles doesn't really hinder taking absolute full advantage of the HL 50% off sale. For some reason every time I am in there and they have that sale, I find myself buying every single size of DPNs they have. :roll: :doh: Have I mentioned that I almost never use DPNs? :wall:



So yeah I stay out of there unless I absolutely need something during the 50% sale.

This was the first time that I've been in a Hobby Lobby so I had no idea they do this a few times a year. I'll be keeping tabs on that.

Sue; no, I don't use credit/debit cards. I don't even have an actual bank account. Being on the road most of the time I have different financial services. I get paid on my fuel card and draw that money off of it by cashing special checks at truck stops or, in a pinch, from ATMs. I do use a prepaid credit card for internet shopping (safe because if the number is stolen they don't get much) but I only load money on it when I need to order something online.

It's pretty cool though, my MIL bought me every size of needles that Michaels had in stock in the Clover bamboo needles.. reckon she was trying to encourage me?

I went nuts at HL. I bought needles I don't ever expect to use. I now have DPNs in every size from 0 thru 9. I can knit socks out of anything from crochet cotton to chunky yarn now.

I also bought a bunch of straights to fill out some of my gaps. I kind of like circs better, but the straights give me a sense of tradition--plus I had some open spaces in my needle case, and that seemed like a terrible waste.

My grand total was still only around $35, so I don't feel too guilty. Back in my drinking days, I could drop that in one evening with no trouble at all--with nothing to show for it except cotton mouth and a splitting headache.
