While cruising Ravelry tonight (my new hangout) I found a couple of interesting blogs. The first one I found is Velma’s World, the home of a woman crafting in the wilds of Humboldt County. I went to HSU about a million years ago and have great memories of the north coast. I did a fair amount of crafting myself up there. I used to sew clothes and sell them in a little boutique on the Arcata Square. I knit sample sweaters for a yarn shop in town in exchange for store credit. Ah, the days of being a poor student willing to do nearly anything for happy hour money! Vera will keep me up to date on those local happenings like earthquakes and bears lurking nearby.
La Fuji Mama is another American transplanted to another country. I think living in Japan must be like living on Mars. I would love to one day visit Japan but am too afraid to be completely baffled and lost in such a foreign place. Not to mention the cost. One day though. It’s on my list of things to do before I die. La Fuji Mama not only writes about crafty things, but also life in view of Mt. Fuji, which sounds sacred to me.
I’ll continue to explore Ravelry and bring you the interesting links I find. Ravelry is kind of a closed club (unless you sign up and wait in the queue) so you can’t see all it’s linking goodness until you are granted entrance. I feel so special! 🙂
