K is for…

KICK-@$$!!!

(alternative title: PHAT LEWTS!)

Happy Monday friends! Today is another ABCs with the Accidental Knitter, this is the 11th week and I have really enjoyed thinking of posts related to each letter, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them 🙂

As stated above, today I am sharing some phat lewts (excuse the gaming lingo) I got while in Phoenix. 

I have heard so much about I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby so one of our stops in Phoenix was the Hobby Lobby and it did not disappoint! We were there for quite some time while I decided what was coming home with me (sadly not enough). I decided on these 2 skeins of ILTY in teal and wicked light blue, very complimentary and lovely. I have absolutely no plans for it yet, but the colours makes me smile! I also bought bestie a light up hook and some ILTY sport in green (she has already picked out a cool pattern for it too). I can’t wait to go back and buy more awesomeness! Not to rag on Michaels but they need to step up their yarn related goodies!

The other KICK-@$$ goodie I got in Phoenix was a ridiculously great steal on the Crobot book. I paid $3 for it! Seriously! I couldn’t believe it! So now I have my very own copy and can’t wait to whip up some (or all) of the little QT-patooties! 

So that’s my ABCs for this week. Make sure you check out the others here, XO.

  1. Love the colours you chose, they look fab 🙂

  2. Curious to see how you end up liking this yarn. I, too, have heard lots of people say that they like it but I’ve never tried it.

    I think there must be something in the air. I keep buying teal and blue. Usually I go for the sludgy colours. Your yarns look glorious. Now all the fun of planning what to do.

  4. Nice work with the book – a good haul there! Look forward to a little family of crobots….

  5. I keep hearing about this Hobby Lobby. The closest one is 80 miles away from me. Even though I have a Michaels and an AC Moore within minutes of my house, I wonder if an hour and half trip to check out this Hobby Lobby is worth it. What do you think?

    • Hmmm, that’s tough LyndaGrace, I am happy with my Michaels, and I’m sure AC Moore has great stuff too… I went to HL because there was one near by (certainly not 1.5 hours!) I would say if you are happy with what you have then maybe making the trip wouldn’t be as useful as you think? Like I said, ILTY is basically Red Heart or Bernat. Maybe if you needed a fun adventure you could go?

  6. Gorgeous yarn colours, and how jealous am I that you got Crobots for $3!! I’ve picked up and cooed over that book so many times, I can’t wait to see what you make from it! 😀

  7. Thanks Kathleen! I love them too! And yes, when I saw Crobots for $3 I practically squealed with delight! I have a friend’s birthday coming up so I think I will make one for her!
