Do you like fun stuff?

Do you like fun stuff? I know I like fun here is a link you should click( ) ...go visit Spinners_World and buy fun stuff!

I found this lovely lady on Plurk (which btw is waaaay better than Twitter, so if you aren't already a member you should join!) and have been enjoying all of her witty commentary and knit/spin/craft posts.

In other news I have been busy busy busy with lots of crochet projects...but I feel my crochet kick is coming to an end. I think I will be reverting back to Knitting here pretty soon... I'm going to buy sock yarn and make a few more pairs of socks. Maybe even a sweater...*gasp*

I will be back to posting and blogging and participating in social stuff again fairly stay tuned!

Just wanted to tell everyone about the Knit/Crochet Charity that we have started...

The idea for The Common Thread started when my friend and I were researching Knit/Crochet charities that we could suggest to members of our message board to take part in as a group.

When we couldn’t find one that provided comfort to AIDS hospice organizations and HIV/AIDS patients specifically…we decided to start one of our own!

The Common Thread will be knitting and crocheting items to send to HIV/AIDS support centers and AIDS hospice patients in our members area. Each “cycle” we will take turns having our members choose the location we will send our package to.

We welcome ALL who want to be a part of this group, any skill level is welcome!

If you are interested in participating or donating yarn or materials visit The Common Thread Facebook or Ravelry pages for more information or email
