My Knitter's Need List

Some things on my wish list.

Fancy buttons.

These are from an Etsy shop called InfiniteCosmosGirl She has some lovely glass work in a variety of styles .... But the buttons have my heart.

I love the idea of putting hand made buttons on my hand knit treasure.

Second on my knitter's need list is a lovely pendant.

Each pendant is like wearing a mini painting around your neck. I like the idea of unwinding my winter scarf to show off a unique piece of jewelry.

These are from an Etsy Seller named leakarts. She happens to be a friend and very talented artist.

Third on my List is some 'o' so lovely yarn.

This yarn has real silver in it and that

makes me wonder about it. Real Silver shines so making me think of this yarn as having star quality.

This yarn is from paintedskeins who I have purchased some lovely roving from. She has great taste and spins wonderful yarns as well.

Lastly a MissPurl update.

New to the shop some amber resin stitch markers.

It has been a while since I was excited to offer something new. These are very light weight and make a very cute sound when you knock them together.

I enjoy them greatly.

Happy knitting and I hope everyone has a great week.

I am Crazy for Spinning!

Now is the perfect time for spinning. The air has taken on a very crisp feel and the leaves are starting to turn colors. I grab my sweater and sit with my wheel and spin. Sitting behind the wheel of my ashford traditional brings me great pleasure. The soothing sounds and rhythms created as the wheel turns and my foot peddles.

So kick off the spinning season right and check out

She not only has lovely batts in wonderful colors but also to dye for hand spun yarns like Godzilla Eats Pumpkins, Magenta Melon, and Lime Paradise.

With October here its also time for sock knitting. Sock sized stitch markers will be up in MissPurl's Etsy shop this week. Look for hearts, stars, and little lovelies to adorn sock size knitting.
Happy knitting and spinning!

August In Review

August has brought many sheep out to play.

With the Sheepy 4 Knitting special I had a fun sheepy guy in a mini flower garden. I had a great time making this set and was very excited to learn that those who received it enjoyed it.

September's special will be up soon and will be a Delightful Buried Treasure theme.
On a September note I am busy making Stitch Markers for the month and am very pleased with how they are turning out. August's blue green club had this great set. The colors were vibrant and lovely.

Lime squares have some smaller cousins that will be arriving in at Miss Purl's later this week. Look for Pleasant Pink, Waters Edge Blue, Cobalt, and Shimmering Air.


Thanks Miss Purl

August Surprise and Clubs

August's stitch marker surprise and stitch marker clubs are nearing an end.

Both sets have been very fun to make and I look forward to there reveal. I have already been scoping out new things for September,s new surprise and clubs.

The Idea for me is to keep things fresh and creative without burning out on stock sets. These are each unique sets that only have a certain number I will make. At the end of the month if I have any left over I will unveil them and offer them in my store.
Look for the reveal to be after labor day.
