We've Got Buttons!
A while ago, Pam asked if I had a Woolly Boully button for her blog. I also got a special request from Julia for a Woolly Boully Sock Club button for her blog. Buttons? Hmmm....I hadn't even thought about buttons. So I thought about buttons; it made sense for me to have buttons. I know nothing, however, about making buttons. (Well, I did try to once, a long time ago, and that turned out very badly.)
I then remembered a very talented blogger and photographer and designer who had designed a beautiful button for her Fiberlicious group. I also remembered that the Knitting Philistine had taken a very lovely photo of my yarn. I then remembered that she is very open to doing swaps. She usually swaps her soap. I asked her if she would consider doing a button/yarn swap. She said yes, and I was absolutely thrilled.
The two buttons above are the Knitting Philistine's creations. The first one is a Woolly Boully Yarns button and the second one is the Sock Club button.
You may post them on your blog. I would very much appreciate if you did the following:
- please have the buttons link back to my blog;
- and please remember to save the buttons and then upload them to your blog;
- if you prefer, you may download the buttons from my flickr site, but the same rules apply--save to your drive and then upload.
Pam has also started a Woolly Boully Woolies group on Ravelry. I know that not all of you are on Ravelry yet, but if you are, you can click here to join.
I am so excited about the Sock Yarn Club. You know, I really didn't think anyone would sign up. I really thought I would go about my day, come home, check my email, and see that no one had signed up. As of this writing, we have 19 members in the club. Goodness! I feel really honored that anyone signed up at all, and it really means so much to me to think that so many of you have such faith in my abilities to bring you great yarn. Thank you all so much!
