Knit Picks & Cyber Monday

Posted by on November 29, 2012 at 7:23 am.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been anxiously waiting for Cyber Monday. Here in the USA, Cyber Monday is the first Monday after Thanksgiving. You can usually catch some awesome deals online.

This year, my focus was all on Knit Picks.  In total, I spent about $140. I must say, that was a nice savings since if I purchased the yarn full price it would have easily been over $300. Part of the yarn order is for my daughter, since her interest in crochet has increased I feel it’s time for her to have her own little yarn stash.

Don’t ask me how much yarn I purchased, but the all the yarn is attached to a specific project, and I know that I have enough to last me for quite some time. The good news is, I’m actually making something for myself.

I love shawls! A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this lovely knitted shawl. I immediately purchased the pattern. The photos are from Judy Marples site. She’s also the designer of this lovely shawl. Stop by her website, Purl Bumps and check out more of her lovely designs. The above shawl is called, Cedar Grove Shawl.  Isn’t it gorgeous? And now, thanks to part of my Knit Picks yarn purchase, I have yarn for this project.
