Hidy ho friends!
Indeed, I do wear bright pink socks. You can see them in this video:

Aren’t the colors just marvelous. And just to restate how I made the scarf in the video, you need one skein of At the Bahamas Recycled Silk Ribbon, CO 6 sts on size 15′s and then just work up in knit! Woo hoo!

Buy any 5 balls or skeins of yarn on the entire site (mix, match and coordinate!) and you’ll get a free ball of yarn. The free ball will be equivalent to the least expensive ball of yarn. If you would like to specify the free ball of yarn you’d like, just message us when you check out! You don’t need to add it to your cart! That’s important because you’ll get charged for it!
When you check out, after you submit your payment info (like credit card info) you will see a link that says “message seller” click that and just write a note to me like “hey Nicole I want my free ball of yarn to be the premium recycled silk yarn”.
Also, for any bulk packages of yarn (the 1kg or 2kg bulk discounts) this offer is excluded because the yarns in the bulk discount are so heavily reduced.
If you have any questions, just let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org

Erin rocks! She is a public school art teacher for her “day job” and designs, explores and creates for her store erinmapes.etsy.com by night.
As Erin so beautifully described herself: I hand-knit scarves, hats, and other items, and upcycle old clothing into bags. I try to live my life in a simple, peaceful, and environmentally conscious way, and my craft reflects that way of life. I call my work “environmentally conscious” because I try to keep the environment in mind when making my work. Sometimes that means using all-natural materials or buying materials from local sellers. Other times it means saving materials from becoming trash by reusing, recycling, or upcycling, whichever you prefer to call it. Like I say on my site, I believe that with a little creativity, you can find a use for almost anything.
I personally find that refreshing and on the cutting edge. It’s motivation to where we should all strive to be on our crafting adventures.

Ok, so I know I am a little bit late, but I have been ever so busy. I wanted to let you all know about my New Years Resolution, I know, your thinking “good grief, what is she on about now?”
Not really a run of the mill resolution. I decided I wanted to make my business, The Art of Zen…….Crochet, a lot more hmmmm….Eco friendly? I know that seems a catch 22 phrase nowadays. Anyways, I want to put some serious effort into recycling, upcycling, repurposing! So here is just the beginning of this. I used some of the premium Recycled Sari Silk and some recycled T shirt Yarn to make this cap!
Enjoy and Happy New Years Crafting!
