I had to spend money on the Black Panther themed yarn from Jimmy Beans wool. I got a bunch of skeins so I decided to make a shawl for a friend of mine and here’s how far I’ve gotten.
My mental process for this was a roller coaster. Going from “Oh yeah, I can totally build this one stitch at a time” to “Fuck my life, I have to build this one stitch at a time.” But hey, I am loving these colors! And it’s fun and easy to knit this despite some of the stitches I’ve slipped that I feel just add character.
Happy new year, everyone! And, like everyone else, I have a bunch of shit I’d like to get done this year:
Complete my stash busting. I’ve done good so far and sold things in my shop so, I’ll keep that up.
Finally run that 10k.
Become debt free.
Publish unfinished stories.
Actually wear the make up I have.
Doing all of these seem feasible. If I publish more and use up my yarn, I can make more side money to pay off my debts. Also, more frequent updates may help me get more patrons over at Patreon. This year will be all about ensuring a more positive financial future!
Over at That Sinking Ship, I have scarves up and soon there will be hand warmers and hats. I have a ton of yarn to use up and blankets (which will be posted eventually) take way too long. Be on the lookout for new products!
