Going to Michaels
With my mother tomorrow (probably.) Michaels emailed me a 40% off coupon. What should I use the coupon for?

A lovely knitting organizer.

Or more yarn.

A tapestry needle.

Row Counters.

Stitch Markers.

Stitch holders.

A pompom maker.

some crochet hooks.

Duh, some more needles.

Some knitting magazines like, Vogue Knitting and Interweave.

And a candle making kit for when you get pissed off at your knitting and can't take it anymore.

40% off of $3 doesn't do much for me, so I try to use those coupons on something bigger - like a set of lined baskets to keep yarn in!

Yabbut, something $1.20 off regular price is still a good thing...

Get a JoAnn's coupon too and if you have Hobby Lobby or AC Moore local, get those too. They take competitor's coupons and you can use all of them in the same transaction. (As long as they know what they are doing. The policy is one "per type" of coupon per transaction and different stores are different types.) Have fun!

Michaels now has Lions Amazing yarn, a self striping wool blend. You could check it out if your store carries it.

I'm in Canuckistan...no Hobby Lobbies et al here...not even Target. :(

At least we have Michaels...

Thanks for the suggestions, Knitting Homies. I have Addis and Options already, more needles?! lol. I have tapestry needles and a stitch counter and a winder and a buncha stuff I ordered from KP that's waiting for me in Denver.

I'm in favour of knitting storage things (will make it easier to move all my knitting stuff, I hope. And like, oh gods, more yarn.

Does the buying of yarn ever end?!?!

You probably have all the needles you need for awhile, but there are always notions to buy!

Needles sizer
Tape measure
Stitch markers
Yarn needles (tapestry needles)
Coilless safety pins
Notion container

Anything else that catches your eye...

Nope. It's called SABLE - stash acquistion beyond life expectancy...

I'm there, or at least approaching it. Especially since I know I'll probably be getting more along the way.

HL doesn't exist west of the Rockies except in N Utah, there's quite a few in Colorado. AC Moore is pretty much an east coast store.
