i felt a project coming on...

Felting fun anyone?  If you're interested in trying a felt project try the WoolPets kits.  There are so many of these adorable projects to choose from, you're probably going to want one for yourself and a friend.  Each kit comes with detailed instructions, photos, most materials that you will need (except for the foam needle felting pad) and a skill rating to help you decide which kit is right for you.  Some of the kits have enough materials to make a second version of the project, so please read the product descriptions for the full scoop. The price range is between $16-$20 and they have included a list of shops that carry their products.

Feel a need to splurge a bit on your next project for that special person in your life?  Looking for gorgeous cashmere?  Try the Jade Sapphire Color Combo Scarf Kit for Him or Her.  The kits include enough lush Jade Sapphire cashmere and seven patterns to inspire you to make a two color scarf. The kit is $99, which is less than many cashmere items sold at retail prices. You may find it for less, or on sale so do a little surfing on the net - kawabunga!

Looking toward 2011?  Try Franklin Habits Stash of Knitting Cartoons 2011 Calendar.  It's a super cool gift for yourself or give to a friend.  Prices vary, so do shop around your favorite yarn and book stores for this item.

Looking for special sales, discounts, coupons and the latest scoop from your fav yarn stores?  Subscribe to the newsletter and special customer event emails.  Don't want the emails to come to your regular email account?  Set up a separate email account that's dedicated to your fav yarn shops. Many retailers will have a box to check off which types of notifications you would like to receive. I've found that many shops really value their regular customers and offer them special sale links, coupons, and discounts on a regular basis. Just sayin'.  Give it a try, you can always unsubscribe to the notifications.

Keep your wish list.  I see knitting, felting and cartoons in your future.
