Our coral reef window display has gone away. [sad] It is being picked up this evening by the Smithsonian. If you have pieces that you want sent along, please bring them in today. If you made a critter for the window, please stop by the shop to pick him up. They are only taking coral and some of these critters are rather amazing, so they should really go back to their owners!
Our new window is creepy…that’s all there is to it. I came in this morning and I should have grabbed coffee. If you thought that the mannequin was creepy before, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
And the window needs BATS! Since I simply can not knit enough bats for the window, I am sending out a call for bats. I can’t promise that these will be on display at the Smithsonian but I can entice you with a contest. Make a bat that has a 4 inch or wider wingspan and be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate. Bats must be submitted before Thursday, September 16th at 9 pm. (that is little over a week!) Bats may be knitted, crocheted or felted and you may enter more than once. Make ten bats and be entered ten times. Bats will be returned to their owners the first week of November. Here are some bats to inspire you:
Boo the Bat pattern available for download from Mochimochi Land (be sure to check out the other amazing things on her site or stop by to see her new book, which is available at the shop!)
Vladimir, the Bat from Deliciouscrochet and available as a download from her Etsy shop.
Felted Halloween Bat by Lion Brand yarn – free download from their site, although you will need to register to use their site.
The bag contest for summer travel has ended and I have on more post of photos to put on the site before voting begins. We will open another travel contest starting now that will end after the New Year, to include all of your holiday travels. So take your fibre space tote on your travels and send us your photos!
