OK, invades might be overstating it a little. But La Femme Monkita goods have ENTERED Asia -- or will be any day now.
Thanks to my first overseas order, a teal and terra cotta hand dyed skein of yarn and a light blue coffee cozy with a small royal blue vintage button are on a plane or a boat (or in a carrier pigeon's pack? I don't know how mail gets there) headed for someplace called Kanagawa, Japan.
No, I've never heard of it either. And it was a small order -- $15 + shipping -- but it was still pretty exciting. My dad thinks this woman (Miki O.) bought the yarn and cozy to "steal your idea and make it a sensation in Japan," but that's OK with me too.
