for the knitters in your life

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I just had to share a couple of cute, fun gifts I got for Christmas this year.  They both make me giggle when I look at them.
A retro tin bank.
I'm savin' up for knitting lessons.

I'm not exactly sure if the gentleman said to the woman or vis a vera... but one said to the other, "is wool your dirtly little secret, too?"  (I sort of dig their sweaters.)
This side of the tin says, "Ever fantasized about knitting your own work clothes?  Or instantly whipping up some winter mitts and matching scarf?  Don't fool yourself, it's gonna take some serious money to learn how.  That's where we come in with our easy-to-use Magic Wool Fund.  We'll have you savin' up before you can holler, knit one, purl two. You love wool?  That's your problem.  Our problem is helping you find the funds."  
Love this girl on the phone.  She is speaking to someone who is gonna come through for her.  "I need a half gram of wool and quick!  I'm starting to come down..."
This tin was from Blue Q.  
And this tote that I think is so funny.  I get such a kick out of it.  My sweet friend let me know that she purchased it here.  But when you get on that site, you should be afraid.  SO many cute things!

  2. PS I did not create that link to the word "tote" in my comment. I've seen strange links all over Blogger today. Hmmm...

  3. My husband bought this tin for me a few years ago. I still chuckle every time I look at it. I have even had a couple of friends put money in it.

  15. I promised myself to be more frugal this year. Yarn never occurred to me to be a place to cut! I'm just going to buy with purpose. Trade my hard liquor for yarn! I'm golden!
