And there's more ...

Firstly I'd like to give a mention to Hazel and her brand shiny new eShop, Knitz & Glitz! There are all sorts of beautiful items made with beads, and knitted goods too. I am particurly enamoured of the "Clapotis" stitchmarker set, it's a great idea for projects where you need a large number of markers :-)

I'd also like to point you in the direction of Yarnivorous yarns, run by my good friend Lynne. She has hand-dyed yarn and doubtless will be adding her handspun creations to the site. I bought this amazing stuff from her recently, 200g of DK pure wool dyed in lovely brights, like a parrot in lush foliage!



Thanks to Rain for pointing out that you can buy those tiny bobbles from craft shops, to attach to the "innocent" mini-hats. If I'd realised I'd have sent DH into Hobbycraft yesterday, as he was at the same retail park at Borders! I love the idea of Harry Potter themed mini hats too, I can certainly make Gryffindor and Hufflepuff with yarn I already have.

You may have spotted I've added the Bergere de France jacket back onto my current projects list - I figured it was about time I dug it out of the cupboard and finished it!

Thanks for the Yarnivorous link - lots of lovely items there. I hadn't thought about themed mini hats - might do some with football colours :D

Thanks for the link - the clapotois stitchmarker set has gone straight on my birthday wish list - what a fab idea.

Lynne's doing yarn? Excellent :) I read that as 'carrot in foliage' instead of parrot, lol.

Oooh that yarn is gorgeous.

The Innocent hats are great for stash busting. I've got a bag of tiny bits that are perfect for them.

Your ariadne top is really great. I love it. The ribbon and the frills are different.

Nice bright yarn!

WOW! The colors are wonderful. So bright and sunny and 'smiley' does that make sense?

Thanks for the plug :-) Your ariadne top is nice and bright - it would not stand out in the crowd where I've just been but might well in England....
