Photos from this past week:
1. I cashed in an Amazon gift card to buy a computer game. With the left over money, I got some knitting books. I did hesitate for a second, What if I saved the leftovers to buy Christmas gifts? But it was only for a second.
The Cast on Bind off Book will come in handy, specially if I want to create knitted items that look more professional. The Knitter's Life List isn't really a knitting book. It's more of a self help book for knitters, helps you create the ultimate "knitting bucket list". It also has a lot of info on types of yarn, designers and/or people knitters should know about, places to visit, history of patterns and techniques, . . . . . Pretty cool book for when you're not in the mood to knit.
2. I also let loose my inner crazy coupon lady. The items pictured above were all FREE b/c I used coupons. I know, I rock. I also took a picture of my receipt, I saved 38% of my total order, again, I rock.
3. Then I got the game in the mail. I feel like it's Christmas. I LOVE the Diablo games. So I got the game plus a strategy guide.
There is a catch with the gaming. Some may find this silly, but this will keep me from sitting around playing all day (and all night). My husband is a gamer and so we decided together that we had to "buy" our gaming time. How do I do that? Cleaning. I've been cleaning almost every day, timing myself, putting "money" in my Gaming bank. When I'm gaming, I'm withdrawing the "money" with the amount of time I game. We'll see how long this lasts.
As far as my knitting goes. . I had a little disaster, but I'll have to use that as my cliffhanger for next time ;P
