When it comes to a good deal, I’m not shy about spreading the word because who doesn’t love to save a buck? Why not take the pressure off—get those holiday supplies now and save some cash, and then you can rest a little easier when gift-giving season hits. So head on over to Annie’s, and check out the Summer Clearance Deals where you can save up to 70%!
Every now and again when I get a free minute, I love to browse Annie’s and check out the knitting patterns, books and the many varieties of yarn. For laid-back summer knitting, Easy as 1-2-3 Skeins is a title you may want to consider. You can get this book for
$19.95 $7.95. What an awesome deal, so don’t miss your chance to get a copy.
This 128-page book is packed with 58 minimal-skein projects. I can’t think of a more comfortable way to knit your way through the summer, and here are a few of the benefits:
- Minimal skein projects are usually small, so they are lightweight and easy to stow and go!
- Lightweight tanks, tunics, cowls and dainty wraps are often made with just a few skeins of yarn.
- Small knitting bags can easily be packed away in your beach bag or backpack. Opt for using circular needles instead of straight needles so they coil nicely when stored.
So maybe purchasing a book of patterns is not in your plans, and instead you’re in the market for individual knitting patterns. Well, you’re in luck! Read on for my mini sampling of some of the highlights from Annie’s Summer Clearance Sale.
