My internet access did not go as planned this weekend. I visited my mom, with my laptop and router. Last visit, I hooked up the router and, voila, wireless internet. No problems. This time much different story. I gave up and disconnected the router so my mom's PC could surf the internet.
In the meantime, some crafty things happened. Friday night, I finished a hat. This is my still unpublished spiral swirl cap pattern made in medium purple Red Heart Super Saver. Then I started knitting a Vanilla Twist hat, a free pattern from Knitcircus.
Saturday, with multiple Hobby Lobby coupons printed from their website, I coerced my mom into helping with some yarn acquisition. I took our purchases to the car and went back for a second trip through the checkout lines. I netted 4 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver at 40% off. Much more efficient than 1 skein/coupon per trip.
It's not hard to get my mom to help spend Hobby Lobby coupons. She usually finds something she wants to buy. This time it was lawn ornaments that were on clearance, so we used all the coupons on yarn.
After dinner at Outback Steakhouse (I had a coupon), we made a quick stop at Michaels. I got another skein of Red Heart Super Saver, with another 40% off coupon. I found a color that Hobby Lobby didn't have that coordinated with the yarn I got at HL.
Saturday evening, I started crocheting an edging on some purple fleece with monkeys. Sunday, I told my mom I'd let her drive to my sister's so I could crochet. It was an hour drive each way, during which I finished the edging on the monkeys and started on the soccer print.
This morning, I finished edging the soccer print and knitted a few rounds on the gusset of my current sock project. I headed home to my world and my internet.
It feels like Sunday. The news came on at 10:00 pm and I expected it to be a hour long like Sunday night. My inner clock will probably be off a day all week. Don't you love 3-day weekends?
