While I am on a roll...

I recently sent some cozies off to Georgia that were being given as end of year teachers gifts.

What a great idea, right?

So I decided I should probably work on something that looked a little like this:

You can find it on my Etsy shop right here.

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend!

Some new yarn.

I love yarn. (You aren't surpised are you?) I love all the bright colors and textures. I love wandering through yarn shops looking at all the gorgeous skeins. I love the thick chunky stuff that varies in color and is not completely consistent in texture. I get a little sad that I am allergic to wool. Looking is great and all, but I would love to get my hands on some of that stuff.  Admittedly, I have felt a bit left out... but on my last trip to Twisted I decided to ask for some help. (I don't know why I have such an aversion to that concept.)  I explained my situation and the super staff there pointed out multiple options for me! I chose the Berroco . It's nylon and acrylic and really really soft! And I love love love the colors I chose. I love how they look together! I have been obsessed with aqua and red lately.
At the shop they have a super selection of notions and I picked out some fantastic wooden buttons!! I am in love with both of these buttons and I might have gone back and bought all the red ones they had!

Here are a few more!

Most of these cozies are for sale on my Etsy shop.

Check them out here:

ADDENDUM!  I can't believe I almost forgot to tell you that when I went back in to wipe them out of red wooden buttons there was a man who walked in as I was paying for my things and when asked if he could be helped, he replied, "My wife asked me to stop on the way home and pick her up some yarn." My thought was,  which I think I kept in my head, "UH. Yah, he is definitely going to need some help." But the lovely girls didn't even skip and beat or furrow their brow... and simply just went about helping him find the right kind of yarn. Super!
