FRIDAY NIGHT PRON
As I entered my LYS to meet with my Friday night knitting group, the assistant manager anounce that she was having a "The Boss is Out of Town Sale." I was able to get this Alpaca with a Twist Lanscapes 70% baby alpaca/30% silk on sale for $4.64 a skein (regular price $7.75).


I have been thinking about making the Color Party Parka from Sally Melville book Color.

The manager announced that the Karabella Aurora 8 would be on sale on sale at 10% off and alongwith my frequent fiber miles card (you get a number of punches on your card as you buy, once filled you get 10% off a purchase) I would get 20% off. This was the yarn that I was going to start purching a bit at a time to make the sweater. Well with the discounts (I also had a $50.00 gift certificate my DD gave me for Christmas) I began picking my colors. The manager aslo let us know that the Karabella would be going up 50 cent after the weekend. I got 29 balls of yarn for 143.00 after the discounts. With out the discounts I would have paid $290.00. I figure that I work hard for my paycheck so why not.
