I bought a copy of 'Simply Knitting' magazine yesterday so I could see Ritaw's toy 'Blossoms'.

Aren't they gorgeous?!
Then when I was reading the magazine I came across this

Limey's new Valentine stitch holders :inlove:
Two of my friends in Simply knitting I thought I was seeing things! I'm lucky enough to have a 'Blossom' and she really is lovely and soft and I love the beads Limey used for my stitch markers.

I'm just surrounded by talent! Shame none of it has rubbed of yet!

Oh Wow!

And I haven't even got a copy of the magazine yet! I'll go and get one tomorrow.

Hmm it was a bit weird making those Valentine holders back in November before I'd wrapped the first Xmas present.

The people at the magazine wanted samples of all my knitting accessories - needles, stitch markers as well as the holders and they'll be printing pictures of them throughout the year, so I'm pretty glad my website is now up and running. It still says offline on Google but it isn't. Should be back to its normal title on Tuesday.


Well done, Rita! It's great - two of us in the same magazine at the same time! and I :heart: loved that picture Nobones has posted of the blossoms..

Thanks very much, Ellie

Oh my, the stitch holder is a great idea! I have a few of those hat pins that I've never figured out what to do with, I bought them on a whim......I absolutely love that idea~

Part of the problem of course, is that I don't know how to make the beads stay in place.....Glue? probably just never thought about it til I saw some one else do it.....i'm such a follower sometimes!

Thank you so much Ellie for your kind words and for posting this.
Well done Limey for getting your lovely website and stitch holders in the mag too. They do look great. :)
I have had a good look at your site today and i have to say everything is beautiful. The stitch markers and stitch holders are to die for and would make excellent gifts . The needles i can vouch for first hand and i have to say that they are a pleasure to knit with.
Thank you to both Ellie's .:muah:
Nobones do you now want our autographs lol :roflhard:
Have a look aat Limey's site . lots of nice colourful things to see.

Rita are you gonna start selling Blossums?A little money for yarn never hurt:teehee:

What a brilliant idea, Julie - Rita's knitting is wonderful and so damn fast. I'd hate to be in a speed knitting contest with you two - you'd leave me standing!

Be careful with those metal needles - you both knit so quick, you're likely to start a fire! :knitting::knitting:

Thank you Julie for your very kind comments.

Rita, you should seriously think about that idea of Julie's! :thumbsup:

Lol No i am not going to sell them i am afraid to say. I think i have overdosed on making them for a while.
I think i have made in total for the party and for friends about 25 blossoms, so you can imagine how sick i am of them lol
But to be fair it is such a wonderful pattern that looks great when done :hug:

Thanks Limey but i think i would not be able to deal with all the demand hehehehehe

Congratulations to both of you. Limey, your stitch holders are really cute. I can't wait to get my Lucky Dip stitch markers.
Rita's Blossoms are adorable but I can understand not wanting to make any more for a while. I can't even get my one and only finished!!

Hiya Holly

I was very chuffed to see your post, as you were one of my original 'Guinea Pigs' when I first asked people on KH to check out my hook markers - well over 18 months ago now :knitting:

Really glad to know you're still going strong with them!!! :thumbsup:


All the Best

I read through the entire first page thinking "Stitch markers" and wondering how in the WORLD they would work!:??

Finally re-read and it suddenly makes sense! :rofl:

Congrats to both of you! How exciting!

Just cast on my shawl project, I'm using Limey's metal circular needles and for the first time ever my tension has come out the same as the pattern. Normally my I knit very tightly but have found the tips of these needles transfer the stitches really nicely.

It's my birthday soon so I'm going to get hubby to get me some sizes. Can you believe I didn't get ANY knitted related items for Christmas?! I dropped HUGE hints for some more needles, a book and knitting bag, nothing not so much as a tape measure!

Is the issue of Simply Knitting that you famous ladies are in the one with the chunky wool coat on the cover?
I don't know about over there, but the magazine here is covered in plastic and so you can't look through it.

Hi Tarrentella

Many thanks for the link - I'd love to go and see the shop and to think I used to live not far from there in Darlington for a few years.

I clicked on the newsletter and scrolled down to the photo - that globe bead is absolutely amazing - really unusual.

Be careful in the world of beads, very careful - it's as addictive as knitting!:knitting:

All the Best

Hiya Jeanie

Thanks so much for your kind comments, I'm very glad you like my knitting 'gear'.

Shipping prices obviously depend on weight but if you wanted to order say, two or three needles, the cost for airmail would be roughly just over $3. (1.58) per 100 gms or three & half oz.

The strange thing with delivery times is that people on the West Coast always seem to get their packages first - it takes approx 3 to 4 days from UK to CA. The rest of US takes 5 to 6 days.

If you see anything you might want on my website
http://www.countonknit.com (there's a close-up of the metal cable - just click on circular needles on nav. bar)

just give me a PM and I'll be happy to give quotes on postage charges.

All the Best
Ellie

Wow! Is that really you, swinging about on that beam!!?? Do you still do gymnastics?

Good grief - that's one set of strong, flexible wrists you've got there - you'll be able to make mincemeat of a Continental Purl.

All the Best
