Hi Skye, just to make sure, these Talecraft deck/cards are not tarot cards. The Talecraft cards are story-creation cards and you can find more info on the cards at http://talecraft.komikasi.com and they are available at Powerbooks, National Bookstore and other major bookstores. I bought mine at the Powerbooks in Greenbelt.

As for tarot cards, bookstores and hobby/craft stores might have them (occult/new age/astrology section of the bookstore). I usually buy my tarot cards online either thru http://www.amazon.com or http://www.llewellyn.com. I hope this info helps. Good luck!
It's that time of the year again where laptop-toting people of all ages flock towards coffee shops, bookstores and libraries to crank out 50,000 words or more in 30 days.  Yes, it is another year (month really) of NaNoWriM...

Roll Call - Introduce Yourself!  - 
 
Hi all! I’m MG short for Mary Grace. When it comes to yarn crafts, I first learned how to Knit in April of 2011 then I taught myself how to crochet on 7/21/13 but in order for me to actually learn how to crochet, I had to transition using the beginner bamboo knook set. I then committed 2014 to crochet the whole year (no tunisian crochet just yet). Now that I have learned how to knit and crochet, I picked up the complete knook set (plastic with blue, pink & purple colors), in the hopes to learn how to knook so that in the event that I travel, these set will go with me so I don’t have to bring two sets of tools or so that I don’t have to limit myself with just one type of yarn craft. Also, since they’re plastic, I figured, the TSA wouldn’t be too strict and confiscate them. As I am just perfecting my knit and purl knook stitches (rows - I still have yet to get around to practicing working in the round), I realized, how valuable this tool is because I can knit with it, I can definitely crochet with it and with a cute button at the end of the cord, I can also use this hook for tunisian crochet when I get around to learning that technique. Once I’ve mastered working in rounds on the knook, I believe I will have to destash or sell my 29” Takumi Clover Bamboo Circular Knitting needle set since I’m finding that I’d rather work with hooks than with pointy sticks. ;-)

I have the "Denise Interchangeables" hooks, I'd like to get her knitting needles that are compatible. She has some patterns on her site that you might, you two strands of yarn and never go backwards. When you get to the end of one row you turn your work and start another row from that end. It's really pretty with different colors.

On my last blog post I mentioned that 2015 will be the year of hooks: Knook and Tunisian crochet. I also mentioned a tutorial on two-at-a-time knook socks but I ended up writing a pattern for Knook basic mittens instead. The ...

Awesome! Thanks Cher B for the TSA tip on printing out the web page that says crafting needles, hooks and scissors are approved! Yay! I also can't wait to try tunisian. So far, I'm really enjoying the Knook. If you already have an interchangeable hook set you can use that or you can simply tape a length of ribbon/shoe lace to the end of a regular aluminum crochet hook to try it out before buying an actual knook set. You can also use it to transition into knitting with needles.

2014 Year In Review And 2015 Goals
I didn't publish any new knit pattern and it seems I have completely lost my knitting mojo. Instead, I have been teaching myself how to crochet since 7/21/2013. After finally getting the hang of crochet, I dedicated 2014 to only doing crochet projects. And ...
