I....don't even know! D:
Black silky smooth yarn I got from Michales <- WHICH IS SOOO EXPENSIVE! (never going there again)

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!

Doubt the yarn at michael's is expensive. *giggles*
Michaels and Hobby Lobby both have coupons out the wazoo you just need to find them and you get excellent deals.

I like the beret, I made one that I adore awhile back. It's in my ravelry profile if you signed up!

Soft, silky smooth. I'm guessing either Bernat Satin or Caron Simply Soft. Possibly Red Heart Soft. Either way, an acrylic so easy maintenance. It's a great beret.

I love using the 40% off coupons from Jo-Ann's on knitting/crochet books. Michaels, or at least my Michaels, won't use their coupons on books, though. :(

AHA! It was Caron!
Thanks! It didn't take as long as I thought it would *0*

I but my books at Half Price Books and Barns & Noble. :P Other things I wanna make, I just look up online :D

Edit: I BUY my books....I don't 'but' them.

And Lion Brand and Red Heart have some pretty good patterns.

Yeah, I love both those sites for free patterns. And it's usually pretty easy to substitute yarns for their patterns because they mostly basic worsted.
