Goodbye 2009!

31 knit items completed, 4 still OTN, more skeins of yarn and braids of fiber dyed than I can count.
Here's to a new year filled with many more knitting projects to clothe my wonderful family and friends in!

I hope you all have a prosperous and lovely 2010. <3

Namaste, how I love thee

I have somehow fallen in love with bags. All sorts off bags. Purses, knitting bags, you name it. It is thanks to my best friend. She is a self-admitted bag ho and for the longest time I resisted. Oh how I resisted. I stuck with my one bag and could not understand how she needed a different bag to suit how she felt that particular day. How I stayed under that rock for so long I will never comprehend. Once you fall under the spell of bag love it becomes like this obsession. You sit and stare at different styles. You see ladies in the store and you don't even look at their faces, you look at their bags... and their shoes if you have a wee love of shoes too like I do. I am in some serious trouble! At least I am not so concerned with my bags and shoes being a perfect match... yet! I am still eclectic that way. So thank you Jessica for for opening my eyes!

Anyhow, when I saw this contest I just had to enter, and you all should too!

Custom yarn

I did some bartering with a friend and she is getting a bunch of yarn in return. I still have 2 more skeins and trims drying for her. I just love it when my yarn stays close to home.

New look!

Jessica and I celebrated 2 years of having our own Hyena Cart a couple weeks ago. Yay! We decided to have our look completely re-vamped by Andrea of Wanted. She was so great to work with and I love our new look. Here is our new banner and you can check out the rest of our design at our site Nurturing Threads.
