I work with enablers!

Last night Jamie called me to let me know that Iris was having a super-duper clearance sale, so after getting rid of 28 pounds of yarn last month, a whole new supply of yarn has found its way into my life. Since I am the self-appointed queen of bargain shopping, I of course found plenty of must haves. (there will be pictures added later, but for now, well, the batteries are dead - again)

Now for the deals:

Classic Elite Yarns Easy Garter Stitch Baby Cardigan and Hat kit for Mom to make for Benjamin - Originally $25.95, marked down to $15 - with additional markdown, $11.25

3 hanks of Prairie Silks by Brown Sheep, 10% silk, 18% mohair, 72% wool in Peseta Purple, probably to become a scarf - Originally $7.10/hank, clearanced down to $3.62/hank

11 hanks of Classic Elite Maya 9 dark green, one light green and one cream, 50% llama, 50% wool, calls out to be made into a sleeveless sweater - Originally $5.25/hank, clearanced down to $3.57/hank

One lonely skein of Galway (what I really went in for) for the duplicate stitching on Kent's Avast and the only thing I paid full price for.

Most exciting of all though: 17 skeins of Schachenmayr Nomotta Extra, 100% superwash wool in black, plenty enough to make a sweater - Originally $4/skein, clearanced down to $1/skein. That's right, $17 for enough superwash wool to make a sweater!

Now off to work on gauge swatches.

I'm so jealous. I'm away at school right now and can't get into Iris to take advantage of their beautiful store. It is definitely my favorite shop I've seen as of yet--so warm and inviting. When I get back to Oshkosh I'll have to head up then. Did you know that there's a group of ladies (well, about 3 of them) that meet at the Starbucks on Khoeller to knit on Wednesday evenings? I can give you more information if you're interested-I always go if I'm at home! Also, your shawl looks lovely!

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa.
