    I am having a hard time finding Bling Your String. I loved the bags and stitch markers. I love your bags and yarn too, but just can not seem to get in on the ordering. I am a newby to podcast, and overwhelmed with all of the great things to be had. But I seem to be to late for all of the good things, and now I find out that the knitting shows and fun things are limited. Bummer!! I am following Mel’s KAL, my first. I hope to start your KAL also, with the new Pipers Journey shawl.
    Thank you,
    Pat L. (Darstpa) on Ravelry

    Oh Pat, I’m sorry your’re feeling discouraged! I did fix the link for Bling Your String and she has items in her shop….It is true that there are some products that are limited because they’re mostly handmade, but for every sold out shop out there, there is another one waiting to be “discovered”. Additionally, there are a lot of great small companies like Beaverslide, Quince and Co, Harrisville, Socks that Rock and Hazel Knits that are able to maintain a more stable inventory. Hang in there with us!
