My absolute favorite thing this year was designing the Mother’s Day Surprise Box and putting together our 2022 Advent Box.
These were true surprises that I got to give to YOU. Things that I knew you hadn’t seen before. And presents that you didn’t have to pick out for yourselves. I would hope that everyone who received one could say, “Oh! I hadn’t seen that before!”
I have had a lot of people ask if we are doing surprise boxes again next year and I’m happy to announce that YES WE ARE!
We’re doing a whole Surprise Box Club in fact!
And I’m giving you up to $80 off!

Thank you all SO MUCH for making my 2022 so incredibly special and I can’t wait to spoil you rotten in 2023 as well. 🥰
Let’s face it, not all stitch markers are created equal. Some markers LOOK pretty on a website, but once you get them on your needles, they leave you less than delighted.
Maybe they’re a little too heavy.
Maybe the loop has a nasty habit of catching on finer yarns.
Maybe the pretty charm that you loved so much likes to tangle with your working yarn every time you purl.
Maybe the ring is so big on your tiny needles that you feel like you’re swimming (or you can never find one BIG enough for those chunky knits you love).
Believe me, I’ve been there. That’s why I set out to create the PERFECT set of stitch markers for you
Infinity Ring are hands down my absolute favorite stitch markers on the planet. Due to their unique shape, these little beauties are the perfect stitch markers for everyday knitting. The unique teardrop shape gives just a little bit more wiggle room than traditional round loops and lets each marker glide from needle to needle like butter (seriously, you won’t believe how lovely that is).
All ends are safely tucked into the decorative bead so there is absolutely nothing to snag on even your most delicate fine yarns. The little bead hugs close to your needles, making them just substantial enough to feel easily as you knit (so you don’t just blow past it) but unobtrusive enough that there is nothing to tangle in your yarn or your stitches.
Mystery bags are fun! You never know what you’re going to get. I have a metric ton of awesome and random charms, so I thought, “Hey Bonnie, why don’t you make mystery sets of Progress Keepers and combine them with coordinating set of Classic Round Stitch Markers?”
And then I thought, “Hey Other Bonnie, that sounds like a fun idea!”
In each Black as Night Mystery Envelope, there will be a totally random progress keeper featuring a Magical Mystery Charm, along with ten of my Classic Round Stitch Markers. You can even request what size of Classic Round Stitch Markers you’d like:
SMALL MARKERS SET contains stitch markers that will fit needles from size US3/3mm through US5/3.75mm.
MEDIUM MARKERS SET contains stitch markers that will fit needles from size US6/4mm through US10/6mm.
LARGE MARKERS SET contains stitch markers that will fit needles from size US11/8mm through US15/10mm.
If you’re concerned that you’ll receive a double set if you order more than one, Bonnie and Other Bonnie do their best to track each set to make sure that doesn’t happen! These Mysterious Sets make great gifts and are fun for stitch marker exchanges.

Knitting and crochet are SUPPOSED to be tension-relieving hobbies. Unfortunately, we all know that sometimes our favorite hobbies make us a little …. well, TENSE. One of the main issues with working with yarn is how to maintain tension of your yarn to make even stitches. Now you may have seen people “throw” their yarn, or perhaps “pick” their yarn. Portuguese knitting — or maybe you’ve heard it called Andean, Peruvian or Bosnian — is a style that involves movements that are totally different from the usual Continental and English styles we’re so accustomed to seeing.
What makes Portuguese knitting so unique is the tension of the yarn. The yarn tension is created by running the yarn through a pin, and also, the yarn could also be wrapped behind the knitter’s neck. Using a knitting pin, or wrapping the yarn around your neck can help your hands from getting tired or sore. You can also use a knitting pin to help keep tension with your opposite hand while doing stranded colorwork. Pins, however, can damage your clothing. So what’s better? Using a MAGNETIC pin!
These magnetic pins feature a very strong badge-holding-style magnet, and a hanging hook that is securely attached to the badge. Each badge is handmade and features a fun motif that shows off your style and snark. Each pin is between 2 to 3 inches long. Each hook coordinates with the badge in either silver color or gold color.
Let the holiday shopping begin! Amy’s Trinket Shop is having a grand reopening/holiday sale to kick off the holiday season. Enjoy 10-20% off orders with a $50 minimum purchase through Friday, December 2.
