Looking for a soft and cuddly Christmas gift?

Time for some shameless advertising again! Yay!

I make these softies to order, so to make sure I have time to make and send them off in time for Christmas, I recommend you make your purchase by November 30th.

I've made four so far this week, for both offline and online customers, and have another one to make this weekend. Busy busy. My fingers are starting to hurt, but oddly enough I don't mind!

Lots of little goldfish, swimming round and round...

At times I make items it's really hard to part with. I mean really hard. This is one of them.

The knitting bit went fine and quick, as did sewing the lining. However, when I was testing durability, the darn lining ripped! So I had to cut it out, get another fabric and sew it in, while my fingers complained about the stitches misplaced into them.

In any case, this would be a neat Christmas gift for the goldfish lover in your life. Or pretty much any fish lover. Or someone who just likes cute little things. Hint hint.

So buy me now! I'm too cute to stay in the shop!

The new lining fabric has gone through severe durability testing, don't worry. Plus it's pretty and shiny too!

Etsy Feature: Sapphire Lizard Designs

This lovely one of a kind ring arrived a couple of weeks ago, sent from the US by the friendly and helpful SapphireLizard. It's simply beautiful and I love it!

She has many more awesome wire wrapped rings like this listed, such as 'Pebbles in the Water' and 'Teal & Copper', but also many other kinds of handmade jewelry and accessories. 'Illusion Necklace - Citrus' and 'Teal Dangle Earrings' are a couple that have caught my eye.

You look like you need a monster around your neck

I find it hilariously fun to put big eyes and teeth on things. My monster socks are one example, my monster purse another. This time, my husband needed a scarf and I immediately had visions of some long, chompy thing curled around his neck. Don't ask me why.

This is what I came up with. Knitted from 75 % wool, 25 % polyamide yarn, with crocheted details. Looks quite like a moray eel, don't you think? Fortunately, my hubby loved it from the moment it crawled around his neck.

If anyone else out there would like a scarf like this, I might be persuaded to make one. Who knows, might make one for sale once I get a moment free. In the mean time, here's a more traditional scarf for sale. It's made of cotton, so it's great for anyone with a wool allergy.
