WISH ME LUCK!

The flowers are 1 1/4" in diameter.
They come in pairs on my Burry Babies cards. I package them in plastic zip-lock jewelry bags to keep them clean and neat. They're only $6 a pair + $1 s&h, so people can sample them for a very modest investment. They make a teriffic gift, too, and I always provide free gift-wrapping when asked.
These are available by writing directly to me through a comment on this blog or by going to www.BurryBabies.etsy.com. The photos show the pink and red ones, but I can make these to order in almost any color you can think of, so please do write to me.
They sold within minutes of my posting them, so I guess people can tell just how cute they look on babies!
Not a baby but you really like these? They look great on BIG GIRLS too and I can make them in sophisticated colors if you wish.

See yesterday's entry for the address of the wonderful shop in Montreal. They don't have a website, but might respond to letters asking for samples. I can't guarantee this, however.
Montreal was such an inspiration. Not only are the shops filled with beautiful and unusual clothing, but the huge outdoor fruit and vegetable markets were a color and texture sensation! These markets made the large farmer's market at Union Square in NYC look toy-sized. I WISH I could shop every day at the Atwater or Jean Toulon markets.
Now I have to continue unpacking, doing washes, and eventually updating KnittingGuru.com. My readers must be wondering what happened -- No Knitting Tip of the Week for more than a week. What a naughty KnittingGuru!!!

or AKA La Bobineuse de Laine.
The store is at 2279 Mont-Royal Est and it has tons of industrial yarns on cones. The ones I picked up are worsted weight all cotton yarns in luscious color combinations of about 6 or 7 fine yarns mixed together. I have tried to upload the photo, but keep coming up with disc error, whatever that means. I will try again later, because I know you want to see this yarn - it's just great.
Did I mention that the price was CHEAP?
If you live in or near Montreal or are going there for a vacation (which I recommend) don't miss this store.
Did I mention that the Jazz Festival was going on and I spent DAYS listening to FREE JAZZ?
Sorry for all the capital letters, but I am very enthusiastic about this trip.
Now I must run and wash a weeks worth of clothing and put away all my yarn and other goodies. Be back soon....
