What’s in Store For The New Year

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!


Back to Basics

I’m not a fan of cold weather, but it does have me enjoying getting back to crocheting again after taking a break from it for a good part of last year. Right now I’m making a scarf for my sister, my niece wants me to make her a hat, and I got a request to make a blanket too. I also want to list some new things in my Zibbet shop as well. I will also be making baby hats to bring to the hospital neonatal unit, which is something close to my heart since my daughter was born seven weeks premature (she’s now 16). It’s all about giving back, which I think is important and makes you feel like you’re helping in some way. I think that’s what I like most about this artform; just seeing how much people appreciate the time you put into making something for them is priceless and that in itself is a great feeling.

I’ve chosen Norah Jones-Come Away With Me, Joni Mitchell-Court and Spark, Sting-All This Time, and John Mayer-Room For Squares CDs to listen to as I “work”. It’s looking like a very relaxing evening 🙂
