Thanks to Gigi and Jasmine from The Knitmore Girls for playing my promo.

  • I recently found some lovely yarns at Ecoyarns…I had some Christmas money to spend…yay for Christmas money.
  • I’ve enjoyed teasing my husband with pictures of Art yarn from Intertwined by pluckyduck.  He doesn’t particulalry like the slubbyness…but he’s ok with the colours so I can experiment with a yarn for him – of course I can always experiment with a yarn for me too.  And I will!
  • I’ve found the $10 swap group in Ravellry!
