Wondering if we’d gone off the grid? I apologize for the lag in postings on the blog- it is not for lack of something to blog about, but lack of time. I have to choose between getting the new stuff on the website or taking the time to blog. What a quandry!
First and foremost on my mind is to let you know that the Woolly Owls from Marie Mayhew are now in the system. I know that Lea-Ann revealed them a while ago- now you can check them out.
Now for what I am really itching to share. We have the cutest, most fun little doo-dads in stock! You have got to check out the Dumpling Case from HiyaHiya. They are so stinkin’ adorable. The case itself is brocaded fabric in assorted patterns/colors (all beautiful, I promise), and you just give it a little squeeze to open it- let go and it snaps shut, kind of like those change purses our grandmothers used to have in their handbags. (As a child I was always fascinated with my grandma’s- it was leather and closed in a swirl type pattern on top. Very cool. I was forever playing with it. But, I digress…)
The real treasure is the markers that look like little balls of yarn. They are sized to fit up to a US8 needle, but included are bigger rings to expand the markers to fit up to a US15. How cool is that? At $9.95 they are affordable to give as a “just because” gift, and not so expensive that you would feel guilty getting them for yourself!
Really fun thing number two is the newest product from Knit Happy- it is the Fold ‘n Go Notions Box. It is a very handy roll-up case for notions, double point needles and all the other necessities that go along with knitting. I immediately thought “oh, wouldn’t this be a cute travel case for toiletries and such?”. Who says that it must be used for knitting? Just because it has a sheep on it doesn’t mean that it must be used for knitting, does it? What else would you use this for? Any creative ideas out there? Click on the link above to see all three colors. Of course, it does not come with the goodies already inside, but I’m sure you’ve all got more than enough to fill it yourself.
For anyone who may be wondering, I finished the stocking in time for Christmas. Okay, so I was sewing the stars on at 11:30 p.m. and it didn’t actually get assembled but the hard work was done. I have pictures to post but forgot my card so I can’t put them on today, but I will share them. Not that you all want to see it, but I worked my fanny off and I will post them if I want. Because I can. 🙂 My daughter was thrilled and I now have some time for knitting. Wahoo! More on my knitting later, and I have a few books I am excited about. I’ll show you those, as well. Until then- it’s cold outside so stay inside and knit.
