OK. I give in. I'm Etsyfied!

I've spent the entire day trying to wade through the myriad changes at Etsy (www.etsy.com). If you're not familiar with the site, it's a great place to buy and sell handmade things, and a perfect place to do your Holiday shopping.

The site became so popular that the administration decided to update it. The update is called V2 and it looks just great. The problem is: it doesn't work great - at least not today which is the first day. There are lots of kinks to be worked out which is understandable. The only problem is, these kinks are making it hard to sell things.

On the other hand, I did sell a set of crocheted coasters today. I have more sets to post as soon as posting becomes possible again!


I also have an amazing Mandala Table Mat for your casseroles at Thanksgiving or Christmas or just for gazing at:


Or... maybe you'd be interested in a totally outlandish Pink & Black Flowered Tea Cozy:


There's more like these at www.KnittingGuru.etsy.com as well as awesome hats, scarves, and so on. If there's something special you'd like to have, contact me at Etsy or send me a comment here and I'll see what I can do!

In fact, one of the major reasons there are so many more complicated rolex replica uk watches in the last 20 years compared to the 20 years before, is less about the quartz crisis and more about the fact that the replica watches uk technology did not exist to mass produce the tiny parts needed to go in the movements. Technology such as CNC cutting and laser erosion have allowed manufactures such as Audemars Piguet to produce in larger quantities items that would rolex replica sale take sometimes years to produce. Not that a grand complication watch can be mass produced, but the parts needed to rolex replica uk make the movements no longer need to be made one at a time by hand. Having said that, there is still a huge amount of manual labor involved in making a watch that combines functions such as a perpetual calendar, minute repeater, and rolex replica uk chronograph in one movement.
