Occasionally, I get this notion that I must see what new knitting related items the creative folks selling through Etsy have to offer. Yarn bowls and stitch markers are my usual targets.
I try to look for unique things that I don't have, because what obsessed knitter do you know who doesn't have
almost e-ver-y-THANG s/he could ever want in the knitting world?
Fancy set of knitting needles that you will cut somebody over
if they look like they're thinking about touching them? Check.
yarn with a qiviut/silk/cashmere/angel hair fiber content, but you only
have 6 inches because that's all you could afford (You're going to use it
to make about three stitches in that sweater you're working on.). Check.
Platinum stitch markers covered in flawless diamonds? Check.
But I didn't have stitch markers shaped like a cup of coffee and some donuts.
I got them from here. You get a mug and four donuts. And you get to choose the color of your mug!
I love these so hard. Remember that scene in Purple Rain when Apollonia rips out her
earring and throws it to the ground to replace it with one Prince was
giving her? That was me putting my new stitch markers on
the needles when they arrived. My old markers
slid underneath the bed when I threw them.
