Needlework Progress

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.

2019 Goals!

Happy new year, everyone! And, like everyone else, I have a bunch of shit I’d like to get done this year:

  1. Complete my stash busting. I’ve done good so far and sold things in my shop so, I’ll keep that up.
  2. Finally run that 10k.
  3. Become debt free.
  4. Publish unfinished stories.
  5. 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!

Writing Update? Other Priorities.

Not gonna lie, not much writing got done this week. After selling out my shop TWICE, I had to shift gears and put my effort where the sure money is coming in. And that’s my shop.

Can you blame me? I got a mortgage to pay and right now my needlework is selling much faster than my books. Perhaps that will change and I’ll have to switch focus again but for now, that’s how it is.

Now, this does not mean I’ve stopped writing. Muse does as muse do and I make sure to get my words in before I forget them. I haven’t given up on Emma’s story or any of my other projects.

As the shop fills back up again, more writing will happen. I have so much yarn to use up, filling it won’t take long. So, don’t despair! More stories will happen.

Sold Out! Again…

My newest creation is gone but I am hard at work on more items! Not sure if anything will be ready in time for the holidays but I shall try!

All this is doing wonders for my stash-busting, let me tell you… I’ve always had too much yarn so don’t worry; plenty more items will be coming. And not just scarves, either.

I’m not selling the box as a lot. I’ll be posting these as individual listings on That Sinking Ship over the next few days.

Cold Winter On The Way

Old Farmers Almanac says this winter is going to suck. And I have no guilt whatsoever about using that news story to shill my online shop.

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!
