On the end of one of the aisles there was a small notions section where I discovered bamboo knitting needles and crochet hooks for only $1.49! These needles seem to be the same quality as the ChiaoGoo needles I already own. The needle size is color embossed into the side using Japanese measurements. You can read more about size conversions here.

I came across this incredibly cute water bottle carrier tutorial today over at Pink Chalk Studio. It was created as a part of a Whiplash challenge put on by whip up. These were for sale all over Thailand a couple of years ago. I purchased a bunch, but the strap was so narrow it cut into my shoulder. I love the fact that this on is insulated.

Well, my knit cup cozie project was basicly a failure. In a last ditch effort, I created this one out of a commercial wool blend felt. I cut the fabric with pinking shears and attached the layers together by needle felting in the center purple dot.

Ever since I was a child I have been a big fan of Sesame Street. I particularly like this 70's animated number count. I am so glad to have found it on YouTube. I was reminded of it when I saw a post on how to make the clock pictured in the animation over at the Instructables website.

I was planning on making my own pattern, but did a little research first and came across a few nice free patterns:

funny: Greek Takeout Cup Cozy
cute: Java a Go Go
Also, Whiplash is having a cozy competition right now. I think there is still time to enter.
