Amigurumi Knits

I just made these adorable little earthworms from a book called Amigurumi Knits by: Hansi Singh. It is a wonderful little book and I highly recommend it if you have little kids or grandchildren or are in need of a cute gift to give as a birthday present to a child. There is a praying mantis, a spider, snail, hermit crab(which I think that I am going to make for my lovely husband and surprise him with it on his pillow before he goes to bed one night), eggplant, garlic mythical creatures and more..... Check it out when you get a chance. If your local yarn shop does not have it in stock see if they can order it in for you. You won't be sorry and neither will your local store, they may even order some in for their store if they haven't already. It is a new age in knitting and I hope you are all ready for it. PS my son's named their earthworms Martin and Slaphappy, cute huh?

Getting started

I have had a store on Etsy for about a month now and have been enjoying it immensely! I love that I feel connected to so many talented people. It is really neat as well to see where some of the people that have marked me as a favorite store are from. It is also very cool that I can view their items that they sell as well. I am selling mostly knitted items but are not limited to the imagination. I also sell original art, sewn items hand made recycled paper that I made my self with my children. Come and check out the store if you google it at: Abbyknits1997 it will take you directly to my store. Pretty cool! Let me know what you think of it.
