A few "sweet" reviews

Last night was knit group and we had a few new ladies come. It was so nice! I made some cinnamon-oatmeal-raisin scones and brought some Trader's Lemon Curd which Anne thinks is sweet honeyed nectar from the gods. Speaking of Anne, she makes the most beautiful and creative stitch markers of all time. I can't show you a few of the ones that she made me already because they are gifts and the giftees read this blog, but trust me, she is TALENTED. She is also a skilled crocheter and knitter and will be selling all of the above (well minus the scones and Lemon Curd) on her new site, This Is Spiffy that launches this weekend! Go buy stitch markers people! They are fantastic gifts and these are made with amazing care and she can make you pretty much whatever you are looking for! :)

Review number 2. I covet everything from this Etsy shop, Mary Mo. I have bought a few bags and gifts for people from her shop, but just recently she made me these for a custom order:

A gorgeous case to house all my double pointed needles. What's even better is that she made it to match my knitting notions bag that she made for me a few months back!


And a beautiful Paige Pocket to match a purse that I have...


I can't wait to order more things from her store. She is so sweet and the detail and workmanship is amazing. I am definitely a repeat customer!

In knitting news, I've been trying to finish up loose end projects so that I can start focusing on holiday knitting. I just finished up this cupcake that will be part of my mother-in-law's birthday gifts! It's "modeled" on one of my favorite Noritake vintage dishes!



This weekend I will be working on a few "secret" knitting projects and watching the first Eagles game of the year! WOOHOO! The Eagles will be playing the Raiders on Sunday night for The Hall Of Fame Game to honor John Madden's Saturday induction into The Hall of Fame! Have a great weekend everyone!
