Amazon splurge

To reward myself for saving so much money, I went on an Amazon shopping splurge. I spent up big, but not quite $580.62!

Some of the books on the way:
  • Favorite Socks
  • Last-Minute Knitted Gifts
  • Harmony Guide: Lace & Eyelets
  • Vogue Knitting The Ultimate Sock Book
  • Ocean Breezes: Knitted Scarves Inspired by the Sea
  • New Pathways for Sock Knitters
  • One-Skein Wonders
  • The Knitter's Book of Yarn

Wow - that's a spending spree. The Fav Sock book is really worth the money as the patterns in there are great. I love my copy & have knitted quite a few patterns. Happy reading.

good for you! It's so tough to break the habit, so you certainly deserve a big spend up. Yes, and I agree with Ann, I love Favorite Socks - everytime I browse through it, I find a new pattern I want to try.

Congrats on the 77 days of being smoke free. Great way to reward yourself as well. Enjoy your spoils from your spending spree.

PS. When Pat gave up smoking 15 years ago,a carton cost him $10.00

LOL Nothing like shopping to make you feel better!!

You're doing great on the no ciggies (yeah I know i've said it already), but you ARE going great!!!

It's been 3 years & 2.5 months since I gave up. I do still have one if I get on the drinkies, but that is very few and far between (about 5 times in that amount of time). I still answer yes I am a smoker if asked, because I always will be as far as I'm concerned. It would be so easy to take it up again... but I promised my kids, and I won't break that promise.

BTW I sent you a PM on Rav.... you haven't replied yet.... LOL
