OT: ZOMG
It's my birthday today (29 and holding heh heh heh) and I got a crapload of Bernat cotton yarn (blech) and a gift certificate to LYS for (are ya sittin' down?) $100.

I think...I will purchase Addi clicks and pay the difference, I already have more yarn than I have space for and there's nothing else that I can think of to spend $100 on at LYS...whadda you guys think?

Personally I wouldn't bother with the Addi Clicks since I (and you) have the KP Options, but if that's what you want go for it. I'd buy some luscious yarn that I could normally never buy..like cashmere or bison, or or or....

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!! I agree with Jan on the yarn, but.....the heart wants what the heart wants. Buy the clicks!

If you have the whole Options set, you probably don't need the Addis too. How about a swift and ball winder? You'd likely get some good use out of them.

First.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I have both the Addi and the KPs....did I NEED them...'na; but, I DESERVED them!

About the Bernat cotton...don't turn your nose up at it just yet.... It's absolutely perfect for "market bags". I've done 3 of the Green Living Tote pattern from Lion Brand...and Ravelry has about 3 pages of patterns/projects for them (and that's just the knit ones). The Options make even Bernat cotton knit up easily.

There's also a new (this week, I think) group on Ravelry named Market Bags...I'm still only lurking on it, but it looks like it's gonna have some great ideas.
