I have a plan. A plan to enlist you all in my enabling activities!!! Mwaa ha ha ! See, I have a couple copies of this lovely, knitterly book by Debbie Macomber to give away. Three of them, (that is if the third person doesn't mind waiting until after I've read it!!!) I may even throw a skein of sock yarn in your package if I get some really good ideas! (Winner will be by random drawings - Um, how about next Wednesday?)
If you would like one of these copies of Back on Blossom Street, leave me a comment with your favorite place to shop online (yarn, patterns, ideas, or just for something wonderful!) I will add them to my shopping bookmarks and there will be even more enabling!!!
Then, next, I'm going to email Chaos and you know what happens then! He makes Chris post it on her blog and then, hopefully all of her lovely readers will come over here and help me to enable the shoppers!!!
I am so diabolical!
(also, 52 days!)
I too have the book...but I love this shopping site: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=69874
She makes bags, jewelry, etc., out of "found" or recycled items. Very fun. I have a couple of her handbags, and they're wonderful.
My new favorite place shop is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5061166
I mean, how cute are minature food stitch markers! i just bought the ice cream cones, and I custom ordered a set that will be "movie foods" for my Knitflix swap pal.
Crown Mountain Farms
Aside from Amazon, I love to shop at Zen Yarn Garden
they send all over the world :-)
But Sheri at The Loopy Ewe is great as is Connie at Pick-Up Sticks Canada. Crown Mountain has some great fiber to spin your own sock yarn.
But if you really want a list of some of my favorite etsy vendors, I can send them to you by email. Of course, I could send you some more yarn if I could bear to part with any any more.
Fearless Fibers over at Etsy has fabulous, reasonable sock yarn.
garnstudio.com has the best free patterns (I guess that's not really
Is a great soap shop from the knittingPhilistine
And I love littleknits.com. The service is impeccable (On Tuesday,yarnhog just posted a review of how good the service is.)
They are a New Zealand company and have great possum / wool mixes, as well as lovely merino (and some pricey but really nice clothing items).
The down side of this firm is that they are are not always the best at letting customers know if there are problems with stock. But their wool is totally worth these small hassles!
Chief says shop till you drop. Go to Webs. They're having a big sale until May 30.
Anyway, I'll still play. Here's mya fave place. She's got a great "yarn of the month club."
Hope you didn't freeze this weekend!
Check out my blog, I've set up an exchange that I think you might like. :-)
I may be too late, but here are a few good links.
I go to Entrelac all the time for my stitch markers. Or get cute knitterly notecards from Knitterella.
Also Threadless? Crazy, funny, or weird T-shirts, $10 sale right now. : )
