The pupil in a goat's eye is rectangular

Yesterday another one of my items made the front page of papernstitch!  And I made another Etsy sale!  Annnnnnnnnnd I got my first wholesale order!!  It was a pretty good day for Holly Knitlightly!  haha.  My hats are going to be for sale at Nathalie-Roze & Co in Toronto!  This Saturday Nathalie-Roze is hosting an amazing event called Crafternoon Tea:
Crafternoon Tea is a much-loved indie craft & fashion market, a DIY den and a charity tea-party all rolled into one. Crafternoon Tea (CT) showcases over 30 indie craftista-designers and their lovely wares ~ with most items priced well under $50, lots of merch under $30 & nothing over $75. Proceeds from the tea service, bake sale & raffle will benefit Woodgreen Community Centre and Red Door Shelter (Leslieville).
Crafternoon Tea has raised over $10K for various East-End charities, since kicking off in 2004.
Doesn't that sound awesome?  I'm going to try & get Keith to take me to Toronto to check it out!  I know that some of you live in Toronto, you should definitely stop by and show your support!  (And take photos for those of us that can't make it!)
Tonight I'm knitting up some hats for Nathalie-Roze & Co, and trying to fight off this cold I'm starting to get!  I've been taking lots of echinacea, vitamins & coldFX, but I'm not sure if it's going to do the trick.  I hope none of you are sick or getting sick right now!  When you are sick what do you like to do?  Any tips or tricks to try and get rid of a cold?


  1. Congratulations, love! I'm totally not surprised, by the way. Your stuff is unbelievable. (: I want to go to Crafternoon Tea! That's the most adorable name in the world.

    I have no tips for fighting off a cold, but best of luck. xo

  2. Congratulations...that's super exciting! I would totally go to Crafternoon..if only I wasn't working that day:(

    As for the water + lemon + honey (+ ginger, if you like the taste) works. Oh, and sleep...sleep works wonders when you're sick!

  3. aw fight the cold, girl! but yes what a good day for you - woohoo!! congrats, friend!!!!

  4. Congratulations sweetheart!!!!!!!
    I am so proud of you!!!!!!
    {If you were here I would give you a great big *hug*}
    I am so sorry to hear that you are still sick!!!!
    I drink an obscene amount of tea, and take benadryl. I whole heartily believe that benadryl solves all lifes' problems! I take the children's benadryl - 2 tsp at night and I feel fit as a fiddle in the AM. {+ it makes me sleep all night long! I have problems sleeping and when I take this I sleep like the dead- in a good way!!! :) }
