New Wine Charms in the Shop! Great Christmas Gift for Knitters!

I felt crafty yesterday so I made up some knitting wine charms to list in my etsy shop!  I love these wine charms so much!  I don't make them very often, so it's a treat for my customers when they go up in the shop and they usually sell fast.  Look how cute:



I use memory wire to make these, which is slightly more expensive than earring hoop wires, which is what a lot of people use.  However, I love the memory wire because you don't have to fiddle with claps at the back, it just pops right on and off the wine glass.

I also made two other sets.  Here is a set of wine markers for quilters:


Look how cute this tiny sewing machine charm is!!



And I made this set of tool wine charms for DIYers or carpenters or anyone else who would love to adorn their wine glasses with tools.


I'm out of the charms to make the tool markers and the quilting markers, so once they're gone, they're gone until I restock.  I only made one set of the knitting wine markers, but I have the supplies to make more, so if they sell out, feel free to shoot me an email and I can make more for you.  I can make crochet wine charms as well.

Must. Resist. Urge. To. Shop.

Knit Picks just released new colors in my favorite yarn!  Stroll Tonal is my go-to sock yarn and I am so excited about the new colors, especially this cool black one called Train Station:


I'm not going to order it for now because every time I place an order at Knit Picks I end up spending at least $50 to get the free shipping and that's not in the budget right now....  so, I will wait.  It's called self control.  I can do it!  Right?

Maybe Monday: Apple Cosies

I have discovered a new kind of cozy, thanks to the miracle of Pinterest...  apple cosies!  How cute are these?  Which do you think I should make?  A koala or an owl?
