Ten on Tuesday

The Ten on Tuesday topic for 9/13 is 10 Things You Buy Every Week. I'm thinking things you buy that aren't groceries, just to clarify.
Hmm, this one may be tough.  Since I was sick in July, it's been mostly grocery shopping as I have been on restricted eating till late August.  But, I will try to come up with a few.
1)  Magazines - usually need to buy one a week to have something to read.
2)  Books - With Borders going out of business, I have been going once a week and now have huge stacks of books to read through.  Not sure what I will do after they close this week.  I am not traveling to the closest B & N at all.
3)  Gas though this has mostly been every 2 weeks as I haven't been traveling that much lately.  Usually in the summer it is every week.
4)  Yarn - varies between every week and every 2 weeks.  I won't talk about the weekend yarn crawl with my sister, it contains at least 3 or 4 weeks worth of purchases.
5)  Groceries - due to the requirements I had most of the summer but they have eased now.
That's it.  I haven't been buying that much this summer.  I tend to stock up on the cat food and cat litter just so I don't have to buy it that frequently.  It seems like I should be shopping more but I can't remember anything else that I buy every week besides groceries.    I just recieved my portions of the tests I had done this summer so I will be spending the next month or two paying those off.

Ten on Tuesday

My Stripe Study Shawl which is now a lot larger and finished today.

The Ten on Tuesday topic for 9/6 is 10 Things You Want to Knit this Fall/Winter.
First are gifts:
1)  Three (maybe, at least 2) Knitting Pure and Simple Little Girl Shrugs for Xmas - One for each of my hairdresser's daughters.  If I am not completely burnt out on them, one more for a co-workers daughter.
2)  One baby sweater - plan to start that this week.
Now, for me:
3)  Socks - have a pair of Jelly Bean socks on the needled, but if they end up too small, they will be a gift.
4)  Different Lines Shawl - in lime green and brown Cascade Heritage Sock yarn.
5)  Reynolds Easy Knitter Cardigan out of some brown Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport.
6)  A hat for me - not sure what one or what yarn.
7)  A cardigan for me: so far I like Vitamin D (yarn is ready); Peasy (yarn is ready); Tall Flower Cardi (yarn is ready) or Common Ground (yarn in stash).  I just need to get the patterns and I would be ready to go.  There are a few more I like, just need to make up my mind.
8)  Mork - yarn is ready, pattern is bought.
9)  Something from one of the Woolgirl kits I have or some Loopy Ewe kits.  I have about 7 or so sitting around waiting and I just need to decide on one.
10)  A Knitspot pattern, either one I have or one from her new club.
