WooHoo - made the top 20 list

Check out this webpage - seems Knitting Lagniappe is listed at #19 in the top 20 knitting sites on the web. Not sure how that happened but love it.  If you get a chance, visit the site and vote for us. Who knows maybe one day we will break into the top 10.

Our Knitting Lagnaippe site is . Here is a picture of some of the products we carry there:

These are some of the yarn carousels and yarn bowls. We also have patterns, buttons, cups, scented stones, and more.                                 It's been fun setting up the website and we've been really lucky to have several national magazines pick up some of our products for review. Knitting Today featured one of our carousels in the Aug/Sept issue and in the Jan/Feb issue of another magazine (can't say yet til it comes out) but you will see another one of products featured.
Misty is working on getting her jewelry for knitters and crocheters on the site along with her beautiful shawl pins. They have been very popular at the Fiber Fests and at Yarntopia here in Katy.

Well....... Oct surprise

Yep, October ended with a big surprise. Instead of heading off to Boerne, Tx for the big Kid-n-Ewe Fiber Fest, I was in the emergency room having a 5 hour surgery for a ruptured colon. So life has taken a dramatic change. I'll be heading back to surgery in a couple of months to put me all back together. Thank goodness for modern medicine. So, no more shows for awhile, no more pottery for awhile, no more running around like a crazy woman (well, the crazy part  and the woman part will never leave) but not together for awhile.
Instead, I'll be in my easy chair knitting, designing , writing and plotting. I'll be playing with the new ceramic spindles I made. I kinda like them.... Will have to put in a picture later.

Also, I'll be busy catching up on paperwork (YUCK), organizing (bleah!) and things like that. Learning to let go has been hard, a few tears, a few down moments, but I remember that the Good Lord saved me for something, so I will be stronger in the long run.

So now, my mind gets to wander, dream new dreams, plan new projects and look forward to the day when I get back into my mud and fire in the studio.

My body and mind will never be the same - but guess that's what life is all about. I have an awesome family and group of friends that  have surrounded me with love and support - what greater October gift could I have :)
