Creative Friends…Series 2

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Happy Sunday everybody! Hope that it’s a lovely day for all.

I thought I’d finally do another post on my “Creative Friends”.  I find it ironic, that this friend that I’m featuring today, actually told me the other night that she went to the blog and I need to pick up the slack! Hahahaha. The nerve :P . And here I am featuring her awesome knitting skills still. Bah.

Well, I can’t deny her talent. I’ve been trying to get Mary to start an Etsy shop for awhile now, but so far no luck. Basically if you’re a family member or a friend (like myself), you get to reap the rewards. Her little Amigurumi (Japanese art of knitting/crocheting small stuffed animals) are just so sweet! But not limited to just stuffed animals, Mary does knitted accessories like berets, scarves and headwarmers. I’ve been so lucky to be on the receiving end of many of these things. I have a scarf from years ago that’s saved me from the cold Canadian weather!

they come out too!

So there were 2 purposes for this post. A) was to pimp Mary’s talent out. And B) was to express how very grateful I am to have a friend that I could have a conversation like this with:

***

Y: Look at this earwarmer (insert link). I’m thinking of getting it on Etsy. Isn’t it so cute??

M: Oh, I can make that for you.

Y: Are you serious?

M: Yeah, it’s pretty straightforward.

Y: Uh…ok. THANKS! I’m going to wear it all the time!

M: np.

***

Yeah lucky. That’s me!

So for now, I’m going to keep working on Mary about this Etsy store thing…I’ll keep you posted.
