Things That Make Me Smile
Besides the fact that it's Thursday, which means tomorrow is Friday ...
My new chainmaille bracelet from Sparkles & Fuzz Etsy shop. I'm not really a jewelry girl, I wear one ring with an amethyst in it. If I'm feeling really dressy, I'll throw on a pair of earrings. But when I saw this bracelet I had to have it. I ordered it last Friday from Uli, who lives in Canada, and it arrived TODAY. Way to go, USPS! My picture doesn't do it justice. I love it so much I just sit and stare at it. Or perhaps I'm losing my mind. It's a possibility.
The new Fall Interweave Knits. There are some very nice patterns in this issue, I think it's well worth the bucks. And if it's a Fall magazine then it's gonna cool down soon, right?
Stitch markers from Hide and Sheep. I seem to have developed a bit of an addiction to these. Since they don't dangle it's near impossible for me to knit them into my projects. But they're still pretty! Pretty like aija's stitch markers but without the dangle. If you like the dangle buy aija's, they ROCK.
Finding out that one of my favorite knit bloggers is back from holidays. Monkee Maker lives in Britain and knits the most adorable monkees. Then she takes lovely photos of their grand adventures and posts them on her blog. She's hilarious. If you need a good laugh, check out her blog. REALLY.
What the heck? How'd this picture get in the post?
