I am so excited about both swaps!
I was geeking online this weekend (gasp I know!) to find patterns for my future spoilers (spoilees?) and was just overwhelmed by all the super fun Halloween and Fall holiday colors.
I do not know many resources other than my local craft stores to get yarn but I am learning. I know there are a bazillion local yarn shops here. Perhaps this weekend that will be my mission to find and shop!
As luck would have it – one thing always leads to another in the world wide web and yarn-holics realm. I happened on a great site – would love to share it – because what I think this woman does is awesome plus these patterns are to die for!
She crochets for Charity (ahmm no the other ONE) and offers a delightful presentation and array of goodies. These little treats are actually potpourri sachets. The ones pictured to the left would make such a great gift for a Bride to Be (bridal shower gifts) or as her reception favors (if you are lucky to be the handy helper in that!) With all of Yankee Candles lovely fragrance oils you could custom scent to her liking and pass these as mementos to her quests!~
Enter Cat’s Dessert Menu and see why she really is a special lady. I didn’t find much on her site about where to buy these other than her SanFran studio – but perhaps if you shoot her off a little email she would be able to direct better.
Ok so another source found awesome – Free Crochet Pattern of the Day – with ARCHIVES ! This is from Daily Crocheter. Uhm doing back flips about now !!! I picked up the Kimono today. Way to amazing for words!
Can tell I am super busy at work today huh?

You have a big idea of how to world could be, and you’ll sacrifice almost anything to work towards this dream.In love, you can easily see the beauty in someone else. And you never cling too tightly.You are capable of great love, but it’s hard for you to focus your love on one person or relationship.
You have a lot of outward focus, and you tend to blame the world for your failures.
You are often disappointed by the realities of life – it’s hard for you to accept the shortcomings of the world.
