Creepy Kids

Take a look at what I found in my mailbox the other day.

Small metal box full of fabric clips for sewing
Creepy Kids Tin

It's a little tin full of fabric clips.  The kids on the tin are pretty darn creepy but the clips are fantastic!  I just wish I remembered ordering them.  I can't decide if I should be embarrassed or worried that I don't remember ordering them.  And why in the world did I choose the tin with the creepy, chubby-cheeked, weird-eyed, lipstick wearing kids on it?  I see Amazon has several different choices and some of the others are adorable. Oh well.  Even though I have no recollection of ordering them, the clips are great and will come in super handy when sewing up sweater seams.  I may even dig out my old Honeycomb sweater (last mentioned here) out of the UFO pile and finish it just so I can use the clips.

So, what else have I been up to besides possibly shopping in my sleep?

I've been shopping at Knit Picks.  Something new and different for me.  Ha ha.  I finally ordered myself a new yarn bowl.  My MIL had given me a ceramic one for Christmas years ago but it got dropped and a chunk broke off.  I was able to glue it back together but it wasn't the smoothest of joins and the yarn would sometimes snag on it. Anyway, I'm now the proud owner of a beautiful and extremely smooth, snag-free, wooden yarn bowl.

I'm also knitting another hat.  My poor Etsy shop is practically empty and the Christmas shopping season is almost upon us. (Scary thought!!)  I need to buckle down and focus on knitting for the shop for the next few weeks.  Poor Sarah.  I'm never going to finish her blanket.

  1. I am doing a blanket for my youngest, but it has been pushed aside for sewing right now. She did comment on it last night, so maybe I should try to get a few more squares done!

  2. Personally I like the tin but ordered shoes that were completely not my size. It had to be a mistake, right? I just got the Knitpicks catalog and am afraid to open it. With the stress in the world and losing Max I think I might order three of everything.

  3. I like the tin it looks antique to me :) I am in hat mode but unfortunately I haven't knit much these days because of a house full of visitors.

  4. I have never heard of those kind of clips. I imagine they would be nice for sweater seams. Enjoy! Oh, and knitpicks is such a help to my knitting!
