Blogger Spotlight - Keep On Knitting In The Free World

I first found Star's blog through her Fiber Friday posts on Craftster. When she posted her Tiffany handspun with pearls, I knew I had to get in contact with her! She also had some amazing yarn with sea shells spun into it! I knew they'd sell fast, (and they did!) so I wanted to see if she'd be interested in a personal trade with me. And she was! We're actually working on items for each other right now, but I knew I wanted to feature her blog her on mine! Her handspun is gorgeous, and she also has an awesome Etsy store. I'm in awe every Friday, and each Friday she has something new!

Consistency has been a real focus of mine over the last couple of months, and I really admire how consistent Star is with her craft. It's hard to do anything over and over again, consistently I think. You go girl! LOL I also really love how much she plays around with different things.
Colors, textures, bits & bobs to add in, there's always something new on her blog! I love how much fun her yarns are, and I'm so glad we decided to swap with each other. I can only hope she likes what I'm making as much!

I've really enjoyed featuring different blogs every week, but I'm not sure if I've accomplished what I set out to, in that I wanted to share my favorite blogs, in the hope that you might too! But, I haven't gotten that many links to new blogs (or ones I already read,) so I'm not sure how long I will continue with it. Got an opinion? I'd LOVE to hear it! I wish I had more time to look for new blogs and bloggers, but starting a new store is very time consuming, and I just don't have the same amount of time to surf around that I used to. Pretty please leave a link to your favorite blog, or yours! Pretty, pretty please with a cherry on top???


  1. Thank you thank you thank you! So kind :)

  2. I really like Star's yarn as well - especially the two you profiled!

    One of my favorite blogs is f.pea (http://fpea.blogspot.com/). She offers beautiful free patterns that she's designed.

  3. I've been enjoying the Panopticon by Franklin.

    Hey Kari,

    I was reading Star's blog and she referred me here! I think it's great that you feature different blogs every week. My favourites can be found on my blog. I like Xtreme-Knitting, Print & Pattern and Midnight Knitter (the links are all in my side bar. My blog is www.eternalsunshineknits.blogspot.com.

    Take Care,

  5. What gorgeous yarns! Sorry to hear about your lack of new blogs. You could visit mine. One I really like is Kate O'Leary's blog(cute illustrations, notes about living in Japan). And for a dash of southern charm, I go here. Hope that helps alleviate your boredom a bit.
