Visions of Spring: Flowers…Pastel colors…Easter…Amusement parks… This is a just an inspirational post about all the favorite things I love about that beautiful season! Enjoy!
Lots of things are in the works; I’ve updated my Zibbet shop, ordered new business cards and other goodies, and of course, working on new items for you! What I’m really excited about is attending VogueKnitting Live! in New York City on Saturday, January 18th at the Marriott Marquis! If you are interested in attending, click on the link for more info and to register for classes or to shop in the marketplace: http://www.vogueknittinglive.com/ehome/66410. This is one event I’ve been really looking forward to attending. Since I’ve just started to learn to knit, I feel like a brand new world has opened up for me, and all that means more goodies to list in the shop
I’m also hoping to experiment with different yarns. I have fallen in love with Noro, which can be purchased through Little Knits’ website at http://littleknits.com/yarn/noro.html. The colors are absolutely stunning, and I can just imagine all the wonderful scarves, hats, and gloves that can be made with them. Noro also has a magazine available, which I purchased and I call it my “eye candy” magazine for obvious reasons :) Click on the magazine to purchase a copy through WEBS’ website:
Some other yarns I’m hoping to work with include Crystal Palace, Debbie Bliss, and Poems. All of these brands have such beautiful colors available and can also be purchased on Little Knits’ website. Poems yarn is available through Universal Yarn’s website at http://www.universalyarn.com/yarn.php
Have a great weekend everybody and happy stitching!
Had to reblog this, it’s just so darn cute!!!

How’s the winter weather where you are? I live in the land of snow, in the city that Forbes has declared the snowiest in the country. But not this year. Every time it snows, my daughter gets so excited, only to have her heart broken when it melts the next day. So, let’s put away the hats and mittens, get out the glue gun, and craft a snowman! Better yet, these snowmen are made with repurposed socks, stockings and sweaters. To help you get started, I’m also giving away a six-pack of 4” balls of STYROFOAM Brand Foam.
First up, the Sweater Snowman, which Kathleen George fashioned from a sweater. If you don’t have one handy, check out a second-hand store.
I believe everyone in the knitting world has seen the photo of these cabled socks somewhere, Google, Pinterest, and of course crafty blogs (including mine), but the question that has come up a few times is, “where’s the pattern”? Well, after an exhaustive search to satisfy my own curiosity, I finally found it on Etsy! (Click on the photo for the link) Funny that the seller lives only 20 minutes away from me
You might want to check out this page on Pinterest also, they have such beautiful posts of other knit socks and slippers that you may be interested in making! http://www.pinterest.com/starrgrams/knitting-stuff-socks-slippers/
