Bit of radio silence this week, but for good reason... KD is proud to announce two fab bits of news: first is *fanfare* KD has an Etsy shop! and second is *fanfare again* KD has branched out into crochet too! You've got to love the iPhone for making pretty much anything accessible anywhere; I found the teach yourself crochet videos on YouTube on Thursday and three days later am 3/4 way through a multicoloured granny blanket, with pictures to follow. Maybe work on those skills a bit more before they appear in the shop though...
And while we're on the subject of imachinethingies, if yours is getting a little buffeted in this inclement weather why not visit the newly opened shop at http://theknittedduck.etsy.com to pick up a protective sock, as made by KD's own fair hands, or email at email@example.com to order a custom design? Etsy, for those of you who haven't come across it before, is a cross between an online shop and eBay specifically designed for arts, crafts and vintage collectables, and the lovely thing about it is that for much less cost and faff than eBay you can build yourself a shop, instead of listing your items one by one. It's a great way to showcase your skills all in one place as well as keeping one ear to the ground for current trends, definitely worth checking out if you're craftily minded - although, and as always there's a caveat, it's US based so all prices are in dollars at the mo. Not that that should put off UK buyers - payment still comes through to my PayPal account which does automatically does the currency conversion.
So that's that for now - enough to keep me out of mischief for the meantime. In the next couple of weeks I'll be on the lookout for some models if anyone's interested, so watch this space!
Love and knitty noms,
