needles galore

Savers had a 50% off sale on Memorial Day.

I don't know how many times I've gone to Savers with the hope of finding knitting needles... and not finding any. I really think I emitted a squeal when I found these:

Interchangeable needles! It doesn't include all the sizes (I really need a size 2, bum), but how cool is this? It has a 16" and 21" line. And it's all in this adorable little box.

I also found a pack of two size 11, 16" circulars, with these cute little purple needles. Purple! Could it be any more ideal? I think I'm going to give the extra size 11s to a co-worker who knits like crazy.

These, along with two big bags of towels for Dex, and a book, cost a grand total of $7. I think I said, "Whatta steal, whatta steal!" about 20 million times on the way home... R thought I was a little crazy, but I knew you guys would understand. :) The reason why I'm so psyched is a) I haven't bought any needles in hopes of finding some used ones, and b) I have some little projects in store... With all the babies around these days, I am excited for some baby knits. More to come!
