Little Fun Things

I'm going crazy right now waiting for Bonnaroo to announce this summer's lineup.  Not that I have the money to go, but a girl can dream right?  They're announcing the lineup one at a time over twitter.  That's about 200 artists (maybe more?) one at a time...slowly... over who knows how many hours.  Ugh torture!

Here's just some fun things before I head off to get some homework done....

Pretty Pretty Buttons

These are from Applieque Source's etsy shop.  I love the black ans white.  The print is just the right size for such a small product.  I just wish I had something to use them for.  Instead, I'll just stare at them until someone buy's them I guess.

Found this through LionBrand's Twitter yesterday...

How freakin awesome?!?!  I love amigurumi and even more when they sing to me (even if I don't understand what they're saying).  And well ukulele's are just fun.

The other day, a local blog listed what it takes to be a street vendor in the city.  Apparently, anything covered under the first amendment (free speach, political hooha, etc) can be sold without a permit.  One hat maker gets around that by sewing Obama patches/tags to the inside of her hats. Interesting.  I don't think I want to do that so luckily they also linked some info to actually apply for permits/licenses.  So yea I'm thinking about doing that too.  Thinking about that made me think about etsy, so I worked on created policies and such for the shop.  Haven't decided exactly what to work on for it yet though.  I know knits aren't going to be a big seller on there but I do want to start making stitch markers.  I'm slowly gathering the supplies necessary for making them.  Hopefully soon I'll get to that (you know, after the commissioned hats, a birthday present for The Boy's sister this week, the NLC, the Royal Copenhagen Shawl which I've barely started...)

I'm thinking about making some with pearls.  I have a pearl choker-ish necklace that an ex gave me.  I don't like pearls.  They're not my style.  But would it be too wasteful to use them in making stitch markers?  Hmm...

One last fun little thing found on the Ravelry Lost Group Forums:
