So Pig 3 had his first day at school. He rocked it out, found himself a wife, a babysitter, and learned to make coffee. All true.
I got another haircut, (can that be considered another one of my hobbies?) scheduled an eye appointment, and dropped dime on another knitting book. But I needed it for the Good of the Order (of the Phoenix.) You know when I knit for the Order it's for charity, right? Which book? Oh, I am the last knitter on planet Earth and maybe the Solar System to not have purchased the Mason Dixon one. Blah, blah, fancy dish cloths.
PS at Jo Ann fabrics they have 1 million yards/metres of cotton for $7.99. Good deal.
Anyway, then I was checking out my new knit nerd friends (mixing computers and knitting, how much more nerdy can you get, oh, throw in a chemistry Ogre joke please) on Ravelry and I found these great ways to spend even more money....
The Plucky Knitter's Etsy shop
Spinsanity's Spindles Etsy shop Not that I spin, but look how cool those are
London Style in Portage for an awesome haircut, and if you happen to need hair extensions, George can hook you up. He told me all about it. Also if you are a single female, he is currently also single. He works out.
Check out Bombshell Studios while you are over at Etsy too! The woman can sew! I have serious envy. Was that a sin, did my elevator trip get quicker? See why I need money, or at least more skill? Time I now have, skill, ugh. Practice, boring.
