Look What I Made: Breast Cancer Awareness Stitch Markers & Knitting Cards

I’ve been spending a lot of time making stitch markers lately. In addition to the Tea Time and Pumpkin Patch Stitch Marker sets that I posted about previously, I also made another set of the Wine Lover’s Stitch Marker Stitch Marker set. This set sold out rather fast the last time I offered it so I wanted to make sure I got another set up on the store.

Knit for a Cure: Breast Cancer Awareness Stitch Marker Set for Knitters

I also made a new set of stitch markers in honor of the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s much later in the month than I would have prefered but I didn’t want the month to pass completely without acknowledging it.  These no-snag stitch markers, made of silver-plated awareness ribbons and pale pink crystal, are perfect markers for knitting chemo hats, prayer shawls and other charity knits.

Warm & Cozy – Knitted Teacup Greeting Card – Available individually or in packs of 5

I am really excited about the addition of my first greeting card. I found this beautiful yarn and knit up a swatch. After taking a macro photo of the stitches, I used the photo to create a graphic of a knitted teacup.

What I love about this card is that the photo shows all the character and uniqueness of handknit stitches, which I think says something about the value of handmade crafts. I also love the combination of tea and knitting – both are so warm and cozy. This is especially appealing now that the weather is starting to get colder.  All in all, this is a great card for knitters and from knitters. The inside is blank with lots of room for a personal message or care instructions for a handknit gift.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
