Etsy shop update coming soon

Wow, I can hardly believe how many people have entered my contest already! I guess everyone likes gifts, especially when they're cute and cuddly, right?

Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes! It was a quiet and relaxing day, as the weather was terrible and we had to put off our original plans. Even though I had to make my own birthday cake, it was delicious and well worth the effort. I made orange-almond cheesecake, and there is still more than half left :) I even had my sister and brother-in-law there to sing me a very silly birthday song, and my niece to make funny noises and faces (7 months is a very cute age).

Taking a look at my completed poll about the Fuzzy Knits kits, I now have a much better idea of what people would like me to offer. I think I will take the votes as an indication of the relative amounts of each type of kit I will make, rather than just offer the most popular kind. I will also be making a few tote bags to sell on their own, for those people that already have my pattern book. Looks like I still have some work to do!

As for my Etsy shop update, I'm waiting for the contest to be over, and my orders of yarn and books to arrive. I hope it doesn't take too long, but the wait also gives me time to make more tote bags and finish off a few toys I have sitting around in pieces. I'll be sure to let you know when I have a more firm date in mind.

Happy be-lated birthday too. I was wondering if you could give a brief list of the yarns you like to use for your toys (please).

Barbara, I can't seem to send any outgoing mail, I am not sure what's going on with that. I would love to still have the patterns I ordered, if I don't I am going to have some disappointed or mad kids on my hands. What do I need to do to complete my order (KnittingKnutty)? I am new to online shopping and Etsy. I need some guidance. Thank you.
