I started a new knitting project the other night. I have frogged it 3 times now, but this time I think I have finally gotten it going. My mom and her friend, Lisa, were in town for the Knitter's Market, it's like the market clothing stores go to to order the new lines of clothing, but this one is all about knitting and needle arts. So anyway, they were in town the day before and the day after aforementioned market and of course they were knitting so I had to start a new project because I did not want to be left out of the fun. It's one of Lisa's patterns for a very fun shawl/scarf, the best part is I happened upon the yarn I am using and only paid $3 for it - what a steal!
In other bargain news, I made a pilgrimage to Stein Mart and bought a really great skirt, jacket, and tunic - I know Mel, I can't wear tunics, they make me look pregnant, but this one just worked, so I thought "I certainly must have this." and into my shopping bag it went. I also ventured into the shoe department, finally got some new tennies and a super cute pair of bright pink slides with fabulous bling on them. All-in-all a shopping success, and even though TSM was present, he was like a small dog, yipping and yapping throughout the store but I just tried to tune him out. :)
