Pincushions in my Etsy Store!  It's open!

I finally listed my pincushions in and Etsy store.  Please check it out

Fanciful Designs

I hope to be listing more and hopefully you'll tell all your friends or will think about purchasing one for a friend or family member that loves to sew.

I still don't know how to get rid of that photobucket white box that follows along when you scroll.  Someone in the Google help forum said they could get rid of it but it's still there.

I hope to get rid of it's so annoying!

Circular Knitting vs Flat Knitting.  This might help you!

I wanted to knit a Lion Brand yarn pattern using the Amazing yarn but it was knitted as a flat piece and, come on, it's a stirrup sock!  So I emailed them and asked if it could be done on DPNs (double pointed needles) and they said "Yes, absolutely".  Here's a link they gave me to help with changing from one to the other.

Hope this helps everyone wondering about this.
