Hmmm.... they do have some knitting stuff and yarn. They do have some yarn that's nicer. There's also buttons, stitch markers, etc.

Depending on the % of the coupons or if they're on sale or not...I'd check out the OT lights if you've even thought about wanting one. With gifts, I like to splurge and treat myself with something I might not splurge on...but, seem to keep looking at...and I keep finding myself in that aisle and no idea how I got there

Oh that's a good idea! I have cheapy "Ott" light I got from Home Depot and it's awesome for knitting at night especially dark colors.

I love the idea of an Ott light, but my first thought was fabric and patterns. Then again, my fabric stash is about as big as my yarn stash, and both really should be pared down...

If you don't already have them, a swift and ball-winder! They carry both online and if you use a coupon, it's a pretty good deal.

I have a winder from KP, however, I guess I needed to buy the $$$$ swift to use with it. ARgh.

I have a 1 item 40% and a 50% off 1 item coupon, but they can't be sale items *and* I can't use them at the same time. I'd do it online but I resent paying shipping, the shipping they charge is too high IMO.

I would recommend buying some Patons Classic Wool Merino, normally around 7.00 a 100 g skein, and it is on sale this week at 4.99. They also have Patons Kroy Socks - I recommend three skeins for a pair of socks. Two is just enough for women's. Both high quality yarns they sell. I was just at Joann's yesterday with my coupons and got two skeins of Kroy Socks, one Caron one Pound for rugs, a Pound of Love on sale to knit more slippers for the shelter here, and two skeins of Lion Brand Amazing for hats.
If you don't want those coupons I'll take them! If you are near a Joann's sign up for their flyer - you get a 40% off coupon with each one and sometimes several coupons like this week's. They are having sales continuously.

I would RUSH right over and buy all the Debbie Macomber pattern books I could get!! The ones that go along with her knitting books - "The Shop on Blossom Street"; "A Good Yarn"; "Twenty Wishes"; etc........

Then again, that's just me! I've wanted those for a long time.
