SALE!  Buy one item, get a second of equal or lesser value for free!

Brief bio:  I am a Michigan (USA) native and can't imagine living anywhere else!  No smoking goes on in my house, but I have my little jack russell, Haily.  I try my best to keep Haily hair off things, but I'm usually a carrier, so if one or two slip through, my apologies!  

A2K's Shop

Freebies!  Choose whatever you'd like!


New itemMini Clutch Hamburger Wristlet (2)

This little clutch has two zipper pockets and a front pocket with snap flap.  It would make a great camera bag for a small camera and accessories, a small bag for your phone, keys and wallet or a purse for your favorite niece.  Available as a custom item.

Knitted from my own handspun wool! The fiber came from lapoli in STS (purple rain)!  Just right for keeping arms and wrists warm while leaving your fingers free for knitting (Smiley )!

Handspun neck warmer  (2)

Knitted from my own handspun wool! The fiber came from MLF in STS!  Just right for keeping the wind off your neck and ears -- it's a tad scratchy, but will be just the ticket over a turtleneck!  Stand the collar up for added wind protection!

I am a 25 year-old knitting fiend, who is the proud owner of her own cafe! I live in a non-smoking home with all my yarn, cameras, kitchen gadgets and very patient husband. I have no animals, but everything I own is covered in bits of wool from various spinning/knitting projects.

I can do custom work upon request. Feel free to PM me regarding knitting, spinning, custom craft purchases and painted ceramics.

FINISHED custom items live here:

Teal Polka-Dot Tankini:2ptNEW!!!

A handknit, lined version of the stitch n' bitch tankini pattern. Women's medium (exact measurements available on request). I added a wider waist band to the itsy-bitsy bottom to make it much more substantial. Worn once to take this picture (beware, paleness under the link)

custom items are not available at present

Hi, My name is Elaine, I live in NSW Australia. Im a mum of 2 girls and am lucky enough to be a stay at home mum. I love to craft and have been making things in some shape or form since I was about 4 or 5, but more seriously only in the last 5 or so years. Many people ask me where I find the time. I just tell them I MAKE time! (Apple Valley comes from the fact that I live in the valley next to the largest apple growing region in Australia). We have a no-smoking, pet free home and have no allergies.

I spy bag - a point
I spy bags are excellent amusement for kids in the car, planes and other places where their play is restricted. Each bag contains 10-12 items to 'spy' and are filled with bean bag beans - light for postage and to carry around. They have a 'window' so children can sort through the bag and 'spy' the items. For older children you can expand the play to 'find a red item, something that begins with the letter 'R', tell me a story using 2 of the items in the bag. Items inside bag may vary from those shown. Probably not suitable for under 3's as the bags contain small parts, although all bags are lined and sewn with care so I wouldn't expect leakage! Parents discretion I suppose.

*NEW* items updated!!
REDUCED items!!

~*~TSM in STS~*~

Hi there!  Im Zoe, and this is my shop.  I live in sunny Florida with my partner, Nicky, and 2 lovely kitties that visit my craft room on a regular basis.  We are a smoke free home.  I have been crafting since I was a child, only started honing my skills in the last 3 years on jewelry and sewing.  I make flower head wreaths every year for my local medieval faire, and I have a BLAST!  I am a HUGE fan of owls, celestial, trees, hearts, hippie and gypsy style, patchwork, sea life, and birds.  Jewelry, sewn goodies, and button art are my main crafts so youll be seeing a lot of them in my shop Smiley

If you would like to see me create a particular item, or would like to request a custom piece on something that is not already listed as available for a custom order, shoot me a PM!

Please see the current round of STS for my open shop!

Welcome to the Laughing Lark Shop

Allergen:I live in a non-smoking home with two kitties. The cats are both quite furry, and I keep them out of my supplies as much as possible, but their fur gets on me, and might get onto crafts I make even though I am careful.

Open for business!
There will be woven scarves made with wool, and hand spun yarns coming soon. I will be able to make a lot more new things now that school has started.  Smiley

Yarnage! My newbie art yarns. I have been spinning for just a few months, and I love it! I do not weight down my yarns when setting the twist, and try to keep my yarns as balanced as I can. There will be some thick and thin, though. Check back often for new yarns. Smiley

Coral Cove Corespun Art Yarn  ( 2 pts) 26 yards, plus about a yard or so of plain singles on each end for cast on and bind off. The corespun section has a core of  cotton Mayville rug warp, and is about 5 wraps per inch. Various upcycled sweater yarns. Wool blends, a bit of angora and mohair. There is a bit of  iridescent sparkle from one of the yarns which resembles Angelina. I dyed the yarns after frogging the sweaters. The colors made me think of a beachfront resort, so I gave this yarn a name that such a resort might have. SmileySold to gala_apples! Thank you!

Sakura (2  pts) 84 yards, chain plied. I was just learning chain-ply. This is Sheep Shed Dye Soppers in shades of pink. About 8 Wpi, but may vary a bit. When I visited Brown Sheep Yarn mill in Nebraska this summer, I learned that most of the wool they use is Punta, a South American sheep breed with soft wool. This is likely to be Punta.

Birds in flight sun catchers My free-hand wire birdies. Most of the time, people use a piece of clear thread to hang these up in a window in groups, but you can also make them into mobiles, tree ornaments, etc.

Birds group #1 (.5 pts)

Birds group #2 (.5 pts)

Birds group #3 (.5 pts)

Birds group #4 (.5 pts)

Birds group #5 (.5 pts)

Imperfect hand dyed woven scarf (1)
This is one of my first scarves. I made it from recycled sweater yarn and used kool aid to dye the yarn. The yarn is 50% acrylic/50% wool. There is one small float (weaving error), and a lighter patch where the dye must not have struck as well. I have since switched to Jacquard for dyeing. This scarf is wearable as is, but might be good for cutting up to make a woven bag.

Blue/brown acrylic scarf (1) The warp is Red Heart variegated yarn, and the weft is Lion Brand Homespun. This scarf is a good choice for someone who can't wear wool, or might want to be able to just throw the scarf in the washer.

Maroon Chenille scarf (1) Another acrylic scarf. This one can go in the washer, but should be dried flat, or hung to dry. The weft is chenille, and makes this scarf soft.

Beaded Sun Catcher Set (1) These can go in the window, or on the tree at Christmas.

Claims I have made:
 Send by Oct 5th
 Atsuko to LaughingLark--
drop spindle and star for LaughingLark - 2 points
Send by November 3rd
Ptarmic Wumpus to LaughingLark
2D. Paillette scarf (2)

Claims from me:
 Send by Oct 26

Everything drastically reduced in price.

I live in PA now (USA) and have dogs and cats.  I try to keep them away from my crafts but you never know when a hair will sneak in (...lots of hair will sneak in the Hairy Spoon rests hehe).  No smoking in my house so nothing will smell bad from smoke!

Please claim in full point increments.

Stuffies - Sandy, Bart, Tinkerbell (2 pts each)

Unfinished Knit Felted Purse - The handles need sewed on.  The felted flowers were meant to go on here but I guess I put those other flowers on.  But I'll throw in the felted flowers....you can always use them for something else (2 pts)

Mineral Bath Salts (1 point each) - Cucumber Melon or Apple Spice
