Happy Birthday Kathy!!

I showed this pattern to my friend Kathy and she told me that it would make a really cute gift if it was given with some Goldfish Crackers and that she liked Goldfish Crackers. I thought, I could send it for her as a birthday gift. Then I realized her birthday wasn't until the end of November. Well, I am super terrible at waiting to give gifts and couldn't wait a WHOLE OTHER MONTH to ship it. Her "goldfish" arrived at her house yesterday so I'm able to post about it.

Happy Early Birthday Kathy!!!!!

Book Cozie???

When I showed this to a friend she said that it seems like everything is getting a cozy these days. It's funny, she's right and I generally don't like them. Then WHY did I make this book cozie? It's for a friend for Christmas who always has a book in her purse. Hopefully she'll like it.
10 Reasons to Buy Lots of Yarn

1. It insulates the cupboard where it is kept.
2. It keeps the economy moving. It is my patriotic duty to support wool farmers, textile mills, and yarn shops.
3. It is less expensive and more fun than psychiatric care.
4. I'm participating in a contest - the one who dies with the most yarn wins!
5. It keeps without refrigeration, you don't have to cook it to enjoy it, you never have to feed it, change it, wipe its nose or walk it.
6. Because I'm worth it.
7. Like dust, it's good for protecting previously unprotected spaces in the house, like the ironing board, the laundry basket, the dining room table
8. It's not immoral, illegal or fattening. It calms the nerves, ratifies the soul, and makes me feel good.
9. Because it is on sale. Because that is such a beautiful color... I've never seen it before... I must have it.
10. Buy it now, before your husband retires and goes with you on all your shopping expeditions.

Boo the Bat


Since I advertised Susan's wonderful tape measures I though I should mention two more of my favorite designers (they're always on my sidebar). Mona designs the most incredible folk mitten patterns and Sallee is the bag queen. Stop by and take a look at their wares.

Happy Shopping!!!

Cake Tape Measure

Isn't this the cutest tape measure!! My friend Susan does custom orders and this will go in Dona's stocking. I don't think she reads my blog so I should be safe. :-)
