The Yarnarian Gives a Few Good Plugs.
Oh, it's an Etsy day for sure! No affiliation, no profit, no nothing for me, just some neat shops for you to check out. I love Etsy; it gives the crafts person a chance to show off her wares, it moves products to new places, and it helps the economy. AND, you get to see some nifty new goodies that you will not be able to resist.
Check these out!
This lady does knitting journals. Not virtual journals, the real thing!
Pottery at a reasonable price, plus I am coveting that tea pot.
The cutest crochet patterns on this earth. Clearly I need the S'mores set.
Irresistible charm bracelets:
Cute knitting patterns:
Will that keep you occupied for a little while?
Dyeing news: the last two in this latest series.
Rich Witch and Madame du Berries (both Rose yarns):
Knitting News: Ahem, I, the dyer, am embarrassed to admit that I just got 15 skeins of Palette from Knit Picks. At that price, how could I not buy them. It takes much more effort to dye these guys than to just pay the $1.99/skein. Ok, heathers are a little bit more. So now I have 15 lovely skeins and don't know what to do with them. It isn't easy, you know. I'm thinking of maybe a tumbling blocks pattern, but I'm not sure if I have the patience for that. On the other hand, who's in a hurry anyway. I only have tons of UFOs all over the house, so what's one more. Have any of you knit one of these? Will I tear my hair out?
Jen - Etsy is one dangerous place. Very dangerous!
