3 Bowls

It is true! Not only is this consistency in my blogging unprecedented, my creation of new items every day is also. I am having fun keeping up with the challenge I have apparently placed before myself to not only knit everyday but also to finish at least one thing and post it in my shop. I promise that I will get my fill of hearts soon but for now here are 3 more!

My Felted Valentines continued

Here is my latest addition to my Felted Valentin line. I would also like to mention that my Valentine Nesting bowls have been featured on Etsy Stalker a really neat website that any Etsy buyer/seller should keep an eye on!

Silvery Goodness

Arm warmers, wrist warmers, fingerless gloves, them what you will but call them the best thing ever when you are sitting in a cold office typing away at your computer or driving in the cool morning hours. Here is my newest addition to my store. I know it is hard to believe, but they aren't felted! Every once and awhile I fight the urge to shrink my knitting. They are knit out a wonderfully soft and springy wool yarn that I am still trying to define the color of. In some light they are silver in others blue grey. I love this yarn and I love how the fingerless gloves knit up.

I thought for sure I would take a break after Christmas. You know, let my hands recuperate. But no I have come to realize I am an addict. I am ok with this so no worries or interventions please :-) last week I ran a large felting wash and I am getting some of the wonderful items posted now. I will be sitting down to needle-felt today too so check in again soon to see what develops!

Please Read: New Toy Regulations Will Devastate Handmade Markets!

I have cut and pasted this message from one of my Etsy groups. Please read! Please go to the link and voice your opinion on the importance of handmade handcrafted toys!

For those of you interested in the topic, Monday is the deadline for
comments to CPSC regarding the new regulations. For those of you unfamiliar
with it, its a new set of laws aimed at preventing the recent massive toy
recalls and illnesses associated with lead or toxin -containing children's
toys. However, while this is great, the requirement also will apply to
small time businesses (i.e. hand-crafters). The testing fees will
essentially drive them out of business. If you think hand-made options for
children's toys and clothing are important, and believe in supporting small
business, please send a comment to the CPSC and perhaps CC your
congressman. The legislation takes effect this February.

From the Storque on

*This coming Monday, January 5*, is the deadline for comments to the CPSC.
The *CPSC has asked for comments* regarding component testing and natural
materials exemptions! This is our chance to speak directly to the CPSC and
push them to include these important additions in the CPSIA/provide your
personal feedback on anything that hasn't been touched on. Here is the link
to the CPSC forms.<>
