Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

New Toy!

Posted by Amber on July 6, 2007

Hippy the Hippo!

The other day I came across “Fergie the Frog” – part of a new line of notions cases from Clover. I got online to see what other animals they had.

I found them for sale here, and my reciept came from Rae’s Yarn Boutique … I don’t usually buy from totally random sites on the web (I usually go with big names like Webs, Amazon, Jimmy Bean’s, and the like; but no one else had them!)

Hippy is pretty awesome – long enough for stitch holders or a set of DPNs, wide enough for my sheep tape measure, a row counter, my scissors, sitch markers:

And just because I was having fun, Hippy in his natural habitat:

    Thanks so much, from those of us trying to avoid spending money. Maybe if I look away now, I will forget what I saw.
