For those folks who get the Sunday paper for the coupons and sale papers and all the important news that is happening in your town and around the world, did you see all of the coupons the Micheal's sales paper put out this week? They have the regular 40% off, but only for 4 days April 10 -13. Then they have 2, count them 1....2 50% off coupons, but the catch that one of them is only valid today and the other one is valid only on Friday, April 14 from the hours of 8am to 1pm. The final coupon is 30% off your entire regular priced purchase the catch is it is valid only on April 14th from the hours of 8am to 1pm.
This would be the best crafting sale week ever if you lived close enough to cash in all these coupons this week. Unfortunately for me I live about 35 minutes away from my beloved Micheal's so even if I did go all of those days I would be spending almost as much money in gas so for me there would not really be any savings. I may go on Saturday and get the Patons 100% wool with the 30% off coupon and get to making a felted purse that I have been meaning to make. Oh, how I wish I could get in on all of the deals because I sure would like to get a few more Clover dpn and circular needles.
This just a notice for anyone who cares.
If anyone here is lucky enough to cash in all of those coupons we( I mean me. LOL) would really like to hear about all the stuff you snagged.
I am knitting my first sweater,and I would like to make a small modification to the pattern, but I have no idea what do. So the sleeves of the sweater has 3/4" 2 by 2 ribbing and I want to increase the ribbing by 2 1/4" so the ribbing will = 3". So my question is do I shorten the sleeves and add the ribbing? Or am I far off base with that idea?
Thanks for all your help in advance, the all knowing knitting enthusiasts.
I am a fairly new knitter and was wondering how everyone else stood on the issue Continental -vs- Throw method. I learned to knit in the Throw method and just recently taught myself to knit Continental style. I can understand how in theory Continental would be faster, but my tension is more off than usual and I am confused about purling. Is the motion exactly the same as the knit stitch and just the placement of the needle is different? So where do you fall on this issue? What tips can you give me and others to improve the technique for Continental or Throw method? Please recommend books that helped u learn your favorite method?
Thanks for your imput. I did check to see if this topic has all ready been discussed. If I over looked the other thread I apologize and will have it moved or removed, just give me the word.
