A little story not related to knitting...
A couple of months ago I saw some boots, I loved them. I saw the price tag and my heart sank, they were beyond me.
Yesterday I went shopping, saw a sale sign in the same shop and couldn't help but take a peek. There were the shoes, the shoes of awesome, reduced by £25! I asked for my size. It was the last pair and one had been on display for some time, it was more worn and very slightly faded. I made puppy dog eyes at the sales lady and got an extra 10% off the price. Bargain.
Now for a confession. This knitter has more boxes of shoes than boxes of yarn, seriously.
