Isla Corbett


Isla Corbett will be here this coming Saturday, the 18th from 1:00-3:00, for a great Needle Felted Flower workshop. She creates the cutest little felted flowers to wear in your hair and we even like to wear them as shawl pins. Isla also makes unique felted handbags, clutches and pillows. Back in August I visited her super cute booth at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco.

Little Reversible Frog & Turtle



Customer Nancy Scott brought her cute little Frog and Turtle toy in for us to see. She used 2 balls of Cascade 220 Superwash. The pattern is from Itty-Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson, just one of the books we carry on knitted or crocheted toys. Isn't he just the cutest little thing?!! Any baby would love this toy. Anderson's book has lots of cute and fun toys to knit.
