{November 15, 2008}   frogged duster

I frogged my tilted duster tonight after realizing that the fit was way off & not salvageable as knit. I don’t want one enough to re-do it.

On a happier note. I finished a cabled sweater from Patons oops, Bernat. 🙂


If you love Trendsetter Yarns, you can get a rebate coupon for yarns bought this year! 🙂

The best part: It’s good until Nov. 1 2009–that is not a typo. 9!

{November 2, 2008}   Borders is made of win!

I take surveys & redeem the points I get for 2 things each year: Blockbuster rentals and Borders Bucks.  It used to be that they’d parcel out the Borders Bucks $5 over 3 months.  This time, I got $15 all at once. 🙂  And there was a 40% off coupon that came in my e-mail this week.  Thus, I have Together or Separate coming to me for the cost of shipping.  This is why Borders is made of win. 🙂
