Bargain SEX*

I went to Wisconsin Craft Market the other day for a size 6 circular needle. I borrowed one to make the child's placket neck sweater and since I know I want to make more I decided to invest in my own. I so can't wait until the day when I don't have to buy new needles for almost every project! Anyway, turns out WCM is going out of business and everything is 20% off! Who knew? Of course I left with more than just the size 6's.
I got 7 skeins of grey Wool-ease. At less than $2.00 a skein, the price is right and even though it only has 20% wool, I still think it feels pretty nice. It's the yarn I used for my Knitting Olympics sweater. I grabbed the last 3 skeins of Bernat Satin in sage. This yarn is 100% acrylic but it's so soft and has a little shine to it. I think it'll make an adorable baby cardigan. Although the store is already looking pretty cleaned out, I did get the size 6's as well as size 4 circulars and 3 sizes of crochet hooks. I got some safety pins without the twist at the end so they are better for crafting (yes Sue, you can have some).
I also got some RIT dye and was inspired by all the dyeing by other Madison bloggers and dyed that fugly sock yarn today. It's still drying so here's a picture I took during the dying process. Come back tomorrow for the finished product.*Stash enhancement expedition

madisonienne- Hey, I can't be the only one out there spending money I don't have! No problem- thanks for the inspiration.

Allison- Yeah, I thought it would be fun to see what happened. I got a few hits already including someone from Iran. Ha!

I was wondering how my neighbour could save a fortune on her credit cards. Now I too have the secret.
