I need to win the lottery

I really wish I could win the lottery. Of course you have to buy tickets to win and I don't buy them that often, no money not even a dollar. I only got the chance to buy 4 skeins of the TLC I am trying to get ran out of funds so I will have to wait until the next 40% off coupon and hope I have the money for the rest of my yarn. It is sad but true I can't afford to have a hobby. I feel like such a loser. Well enough of the pity party. I spent some time last night crocheting not much time but I did get a few rows done. Really can't seem to get in the mood to crochet or do anything these days. Well I have not spent anytime working on the dishcloths either I am such a bad person. I am running out of time to get the dishcloths and potholders done. Well happy crocheting and knitting.

Working on my plan

Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon this week it is a 40% off one regular price item. I started my plan on Monday to buy the yarn for the graphic granny afghan from the first issue of Crochet today! so far I have 2254 Persimmon, 2820 Robbin Egg, and 2919 Barn Red on hold and waiting for me to buy tomorrow is 2533 Dark Plum it was the last skein and the saleswoman found it behind another color she told me they did not plan to carry that color anymore so that was good luck. Hobby Lobby is on my way home from work so I am not wasting gas to go by everyday the regular price of the yarn is $2.97 and I paid with tax $1.90. So I know what my first project will be after Christmas it will take that long to complete my plan and have time to work on the afghan. Maybe while I am at the beach I plan to take my crochet. When I work on this project it will be the first time I have made an afghan that you have to stitch together, I have made a practice hexagon and it is easy and I think the hexagon's will work up quickly the stitching together is a different story we shall see what happens. Happy crocheting and knitting.
