r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Teams on Tuesday - EtsyKnitters

The first team I joined after opening my Etsy shop, ennadoolf, was the EtsyKnitters team. The team members are welcoming and freely share knitting advice, Etsy shop tips, and lots more.

Members of the EtsyKnitters are from around the globe including the US, Canada, Italy, UK, Australia and more. Our team leaders are Marie from KnittedGems, Mette from knittingmette and Sherri from SherriCrochets.

As a team, we've held challenges to help members creatively try new knitting colours, yarns, techniques, patterns, stitches and textures. This helps everyone increase their skills at their own pace and comfort level.

We are the first virtual team to take part in World Wide Knit in Public Day! (WWKiPD) It takes place annually on or about June 14.
In 2008, as a virtual team, all team members were encouraged to knit in public on that date and then take a photo to document our public knitting. Hm, come to think of it, I'm not sure I ever did show anyone that photo! oops.

It's a great team with some wonderful members - and gives the online experience of having a shop on Etsy a more humane touch.

quoting the phrase Mette uses to end her emails...
Have a Knitty day!
