Let’s face it, we all love to enable.

I love to bring to the attention of my favorite knitters and spinners product I know they will love.  Weather it be yarn, fiber, needles, or any other tool that would be needed to knit or spin.  There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not sending links to friends or they to me.   Lately, it’s been all the gorgeous patterns by our fabulous designers.

So it was no surprise to me that I enabled a coworker today to purchase yarn for a hat and neck warmer that she’s been wanting to knit from a pattern that I showed her on Ravelry.  She liked the yarn that I’ve been using for my daughter’s cowl and the price was right.  The hat will be her first project in the round so I’m hoping that it arrives before I go out on leave so that I can help her get cast on.

What have you enabled lately?
