I also finally found the cute Twitter buttons, thanks to Lori from Risky Beads who I've told you about before. I really would like to throw one on my page, but I totally don't get it! LOL Maybe it's because it's Friday the 13th, maybe it's because of the gloomy weather we've had all week, or maybe it's just my mommy brain. I was hoping to figure it out and come tell you all about it and how to get one of your own. But I can't, WAH. What I can do is share the link so if you are smarter than I am you can get one for yourself. And if you are in a good mood, maybe you'll tell me how to do it too! They also have a nice assortment of Twitter backgrounds for you to choose from. In other news I am teaching myself a new craft so that I will have more diversity of product for my Blue Star Butterflies shops on Artfire and Etsy I tried to learn to knit several years back, but I was so much better at crochet that I couldn't hang in there. I quit half way through a scarf and never looked back. But I have always liked the way that knit looks. Now that I have started this little indie business of mine I wanted to expand. And I live in Minnesota which provides me with a long winter, just begging a person to learn a new craft while cooped up indoors. I am really happy that I listened to my heart and ditched the scarf because I just wasn't into it. I decided to go for a hat and it was totally worth it! It was fun and interesting. I started over several times, so I'm a pro at casting on now. I won't say it's a great hat, but it ain't bad and I'm not embarrassed to wear it- rock on! This is the pattern I used. I even made my hubby at hat and it turned out very well. I'm super pleased that my years of yarn work have lent themselves to picking up this new craft. I have a few more personal projects in mind, like a hat for myself that I'm currently working on with some gorgeous hand painted alpaca yarn in a super fun design.
Not bad, eh! And I want to make a wide scarf/shawl. By that time I think I will be doing well enough to start creating things for Blue Star Butterflies! Yipee.
