Something New

So, I'm getting kind of bored posting just my own stuff. So I think I'm going to try something new and see how it goes. Once a day I'm going to post one of my favorite shops and a few of their best pieces, until I run out of favorite shops, at which point I'll take suggestions on who I should post. Now this might take a while as I have a LOT of favorites, but we'll see how it goes. :) I'm going to start from my oldest favorites, and work towards my newest. Let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions for shops.

Today's shop is:

Demented Creatures and Knit Dice Bags

I’ve got to give props to my cousin Amber, the owner of the thewanderingknitter. Without her, I never would have opened a shop on Etsy! She has some beautiful scarves for sale at the moment. Here is my favorite:

Midnight Blue Lace Scarf

It's a slightly darker blue in person, but very pretty!

Now while her scarves are beautiful, her specialty is strange creatures! At the moment she has a cute set of Edgar Allan Poe inspired stuffed kittens as her shop's featured item. Okay maybe cute is the wrong word. ;) This one is named after the love interest in the poem "The Raven".

Lenore the Halloween Kitten

I've been told by a reliable source (namely Amber herself) that she will be posting some less creepy fall, winter, and Christmas themed kittens later this week.

Now for all you gamer geeks out there, I will direct you to the last of her specialties! Hand knit, hand felted, dice bags! I actually own two (well one is my husband's) and they are perfect for carrying around your precious dice and gaming pieces! This one not only has a cool striped pattern to it, but it also has a hand felted, appliqué leaf decoration that was added to the front! Very wood elf-esque. :)

Dice Bag - Cameo Leaf

She loves to do special orders and has also recently been working on some new items (some cute demented bunnies among other things). Overall, a very cool knitting shop and the reason that I am now on Etsy!

That's all for now stayed tune till tomorrow for the next featured shop.

::Hint - It's full of pastel prints!::

Later! :)
