I suppose that if you want to get technical, NickiChicki is really not competing with me. She makes trendy and fashionable knits, while I crochet anime geekery. (Don’t let her good looks and ability to dress herself like a real person fool you, I met her on a Sailormoon fansite.) While she doesn’t have anything in her shop at the moment (she seems to be enjoying her summer too much to think about the winter she’s going to have there in MN) you should really mark her as a favorite. Her stuff goes really fast ones it hits the shop and it’s all amazing.
