Hey, everybodies! I was looking at Tiffany's Tumblr, and she totally tumbld me! Yey! Now if only I could figure out how to make my Tumblr NewUsedClothing pretty. Stay tuned for the great migration, Teabeans fans. At the rate I have been crafting, you should see something around September...

Hello! Katiebeans is back on the blog. Updates to report:

- Iron Martin and I are settled in our new, cozy, breezy, sunshiney, lofty loft! All I can say is we are in love with our crooked nook! Every morning, I walk through a tunnel of blossoming trees, and it makes my day. These fleurs are inspring for some crochet accessories!

- I have been learning about how to make a bathing suit, and how to "kill" fabrics so that they are immutable. The last thing you need is a bathing suit stretching sagging around in weird places! Unless that's your thing. Thing rhymes with Spring.

- I am now 20 blocks from my old crochet shop, KnitNewYork. (Although, as I post this, I just saw they are moving locations?) The good news is, there is another shop right around the corner! GottaKnit is definitely less hip & trendy, but I never "hung out" at KnitNY anyways. Plus GottaKnit had size B, C, and D hooks, which is all I needed!

- I noticed some crochet necklaces at Urban Outfitters the other day. I think Katiebeans can bang one of these guys out, what do you think?

Happy Spring! Let's crochet our faces off and spend the summer on the beach!
