Ravelry has been going on for a while. I started the Singapore Knitters group not too long after I joined. As of today, there's 91 members from either on this island or outside of it. Least too say, I have met more knitters than I ever could. Then again, there's some knitters that's worth mentioning.
Here's my list in no particular order:
- turniptopia - blog
her 1 year old toddler is so like her mom.
- munyee - blog
hope to see her very soon when she returns. I love her pottery items.
- sqpixels - blog
She knits, crochets, bakes and sews.

I had been conducting yarn sprees, the day I knew that Knitpicks doesn't ship international and still doesn't till this day. To buy in bulk with other like minded knitters was great to share cost and shipping. Also, to see people beaming when they receive their yarns, made me continued as the Enabler.
So here's the recent purchase from Nordic.com, which specialises in Garnstudio yarns. I am truely surprised by the quality, as most of the time we could only depend on the reviews in Ravelry. This very first spree justified itself and for future purchases.
A soon to be used up yarn, Kidsilk Night in Moonlight. I got 6 balls for Lily Chin's Reversible Ribbed stole. I must be knitting too much and too fast with this yarn, that I ended up with a wounded index finger. Compared to KSH, there's glitter spun within, so I guess it the glitter that caused the abrasion. Anyways, I order another 6 balls in Port, cuz the price was too hard to resist.
Next up is some cashmere cobweb/lace goodies all the way from UK. I guess those who have bought from the same seller will know who I'm talking about. Each color would be enough for a stole/shawl. All for less than US$60.
