The Third Week of 2008

I'm working on my third Purl Bee beret, and I got more yarn today from Hobby Lobby to make another one. I love the Baby Bee Sweet Delight yarn because it is lightweight and very, very soft. They also have a great color scheme. And to top it all off, I found a really cute color that will match my new coat and it was priced at $3.99 instead of the other yarns, which were $4.99. Their mistake, my profit! I also picked up the $.99 yarn to make some simple scarves that Curt can sell at his next concert. We figured we could just try to sell them, and if they do sell, we'd make about $10 profit.

Speaking of deals, Curt & I went to Old Navy the other day and got a ton of stuff on sale! Like a coat just like this but in navy blue. Regularly $78, I got it for about $18. RIDICULOUS!
Curt got a bunch of seasonal boxers for very cheap, which means he can finally weed out the old gross ones from his stash. Now he's going to permanently be wearing some sort of holiday boxers. His collection now includes New Year's, Valentine's, camping, hunting, and Christmas. It's quite the collection. The best part of our shopping spree? -- We had $100 total in Old Navy gift cards, so we didn't have to spend a dime.

Back to my knitting, this is going to be a nice relaxing, extra-long weekend. Now if only I can convince myself to do those dishes. How do they pile up SO quickly? I would give anything for a dishwasher.
