  1. I stopped by your Etsy shop. So many cute tiems but I really like the Pink Ribbon needles, A LOT!

    I make a lot of chemo caps and this cause is very der to me. Keep up the good work!

    Best wishes for your shop success.

  2. Hello Andrea! I would like to participate, because bamboo knitting needles are almost impossible to get from Finland.

    My favorite color is black, though I prefer turquoise too. And I really like the banner of your etsy shop. The wool looks almost like cotton candy. And I love cotton candy!

  3. my fave color is green and i actually really like the design in the first pic:) and then in your etsy shop i like your amigurumi characters, they are sooooo cute!!:) i'm starting to get into amigurumi and love finding new cute ones that i might wanna do:D

  4. Your etsy shop is very cute. And I like green. ;)

  5. I visited your cute Etsy shop and just love the Extra-Long Soy Wool Scarf. It is so pretty. I also think painting knitting needles is very clever. Love the aqua topped ones best.

  6. I visited your etsy shop and it has given me ideas for my shop-to-be! Your amigurumi are cute!!!

    My favorite colors are burgundy and navy.

  7. The striped ones in green and blue would look nice, I think. It's neat how you got the tentacles on your little octopi to curl like that. :)


  8. I like the green polka dot needles! And in your shop I like that you sell both crochet patterns and crocheted items. Sometimes I see really cool patterns but I'm not sure that I have the skill to make it myself and I'd like to buy it instead. : )

  9. i like the first design in red and yellow

  10. o yea almost forgot thanks for the listing on etsy

  11. I like the breast cancer one. it is way awesome

  12. The maracas are creative! If DD wasnt a "big girl" now I'd be tempted. But I'm always a sucker for octopi!

  13. Hi there
    It was great to meet you the other day in Candy's stall. Sorry to look so blankly at you but I didn't know who you were until candy introduced me and explained.

    I love your little creatures they are wonderful. I've thought about knitting them but decided against it plus there are no longer any small people in the house who would appreciate one.

    Good luck with your shop. I love your painted knitting needles how creative - I've never thought of doing that... its one way to identify a pair immediately.

    Take care Bizzi Lizzi

  14. Hi! I love the color green and my favorite of the designs is the polka dot. Your etsy shop has some cute amigurami! I have to say, though, I really loved the maracas. I have a 3 year old who loves music and maracas but tends to throw things - those would be perfect. Wherever did you find the pattern?

  15. Andrea:
    I love the pink needles! Really pretty...
    I wish you the best of lucks with your shop...I definitely love the painted needles there!

  16. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I would love a green pair :D
    OK. I have been doing Etsy for over 3 years so I should be able to give you a good feedback on your Etsy shop!
    I do like the banner. It is nice and clear with shop name :D
    I know some people special background on photo shooting. I used to use white paper cardboard. I have recently encountered propylene sheet. It's great on photo background (comes in white and other colors). This will make your item photo look clearer and stand out (e.g if you use different background color).
    I like the way you have taken the item photos because they are clear :D
    Well done for such a hard work!! If there are anything I can do, don't hesitate to contact me :D

  17. Hello! It's so nice of you to have a giveaway. My favorite color is pink, yet I am in love with the green polkadots!

    Your etsy shop is so cute! I like both your banner and items. I am in love with amigurumi and "bloop" the monster is adorable.

    I will mention your giveaway on my blog:

  18. Came across your blog from RAvelry... I just wanted to stop and say hey! :) Also, my favorite out of the three is the one on the left ;) You're etsy shop is so cute! I love all your amigurumi!! That has become my favorite to crochet!! :)
    Have a great day!!

  19. My favorite color is green. I like the spotted needles best, but I also like the purple ones. I ike the maracas on your shop.

  20. What a very cute Etsy shop!! I like the friendship bracelet very much.

    As for the knitting needles, the pink ones are my favourite :)

    Thanks for having a give-a-way, very nice idea!

  21. I love the first design, polka dots always win me over!

    Really cute etsy shop - my favorite item is the amigurumi green octopus - totally adorable!!!

  22. I like the center ones just the way they are. Polka dots in similar colors would be cute as well.

    I've been thinking of learning to spin. Your shop was a great find for me. Thank you!


I'd love to hear what you think. :)
