Confessions of a Serial Etsy Shopper

Part 2 in my Lenten "confessional" series. This next shop is one of my favorites! (OK they're all my favorites) But Bobbi over at Kittygrrlz knows how to spin up some good yarn porn. I check her site everyday and there is always one or two things that I am drooling over and must have immediately. She is so popular over at Etsy that, knitters, heed my warning: If you LOVE it BUY it, or someone else will!!!! That being said, Bobbi is a sweetheart and when someone (Phydeaux) beat me to buying yarn I was dreaming about, Bobbi respun me some. So she calls this "Functional Art Yarn" and it took me a few tries, but I have found it quite easy to work with. I adorn my capes with it. I could be happy just draping myself in it :) But I knit it and put the items up for sale. So go, visit, tell her I sent you, keep her spinning these gorgeous, beautiful, fun to knit yarns!

Hahaha! LOL, guilty as charged! I'm looking at those beautiful bright pink/orange/green skeins right now ... they need to be wound. :) And Sabrina's Vintage Garden was SO much fun to knit. You can't go wrong with Bobbi's incredible work - just a delight to knit with. :)

Thank you, Becca, for including me here and all the kind words. Sabrina's Vintage Garden is one of my absolutely favorites I've ever spun and I look forward to seeing how you use it.

Brenda, I love the scarf you knit with it, too! So lush!

And, I've just got to share that last weekend i taught a "knitting with art yarn" class and one of the students chose the last skein of Sabrina and knit an amazing cowl!

I'd love to spin this one again, but you never know. Sometimes they never turn out the same as the "first time". ;)

hmm, that last part should read "sometimes they don't turn out the same as the "first time"."
