can you say 40% off?

15 09 2006


a show of hands please, who can resist a 40% off sale?

didn’t think so.

the lys was having a secret sale. the lucky customer gets to ‘choose’ their discount out of a basket. one could get 10-50% off a single item or an entire purchase!!!! i picked out a ‘40% off your entire purchase’. now admittedly, you only got to choose your discount once you got to the counter. and on my shopping list were small gifts (one for myself *blush*) that i had planned to knit. may i introduce to you:


plymouth yarn suri merino
50 g / 110 yds; 55% suri alpaca / 45% extra fine merino wool
colors: #2037 (pumpkin – 2 balls), #1310 (mint – 3 balls), & #282 (natural – 1 ball)
i also added a set of #5 bamboo dpns (no picture). i plan to make a few sets of fingerless gloves (maybe this or a shorter version of this) and a matching skinny scarf for gifts. oh, i did buy the pumpkin for me…check out how well this matches my winter coat!
