All my items are currently sold out over at thatsinkingship.com. But don’t worry, I have projects in the works to replenish everything.
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!
Since my kid decided to leave her gloves somewhere right when it began to snow, I whipped these up for her in about a day. It’s the most basic of basics, I cast on 30 or so stitches and knit a rectangle, then whip stitched the sides with a thumb hole. It used almost the entire skein of Whatever Yarn This Was Because The Label Went Bye-bye.
My hands only hurt a little after making these and that may have had something to do with having to stop and go shovel. Since it was stupid easy to make these, I may start stocking my shop over at That Sinking Ship with these in various colors and sizes.
Did she like them? Yeah, I hadda practically steal them to wash them.
Since I haven’t made that much of a dent in my stash, I invested in one of these Wirk Desk Bikes:
This way if I sit and knit or crochet all day, I can still burn calories. So far, I’ve lost 8 pounds this year and I intend to keep it up!
Happy New Year!! And with the decorations down and house clean; it’s time to start thinking about what I’d like to accomplish this year:
I think 5 is more than enough for one year considering all the stuff I’d like to accomplish. And I think they’re pretty reasonable.
What things do you think I should try? And what are you planning to make of this year?
As I clean up and clean out, I still have a bunch of yarn floating around. Luckily, people are still asking me to make things for them, despite it taking me fucking forever to make these, I am still going along with my plan to pay all of what I have termed “yarn debts” to people who’ve made requests of me.
Here is the progress I’ve made so far an another baby blanket:
It’s slow going but I’m happy with the results. I have some washcloths I want to make to match these colors before I mail them out.
After this, more of the stuff I make will either go up into my shop or eBay if you’re in the market for such things. I love making these but there’s only so many things I can use for myself. No matter how much I may wanna keep them.
I’ve been diligent about my stash busting so it’s time to start posting what I’ve finished! 😀
This pink cammo scarf is 55in long and 8in wide. It’s crocheted with acrylic yarn. I’m enjoying using up all the yarn I bought. It’s such a shame that it’s so easy to see pretty yarn and buy it without even a project in mind. So, expect to see a lot of scarves and washcloths being posted here in the future. Since those work up really fast and are easy for me to do, it’s my sure fire way to bust my yarn stash for good. 🙂
Too long ago, my cousin had a baby and seeing as how I crochet very slowly (and used to have people actively hindering me from doing needlework but thankfully, they go hinder someone else now) I still hope the little one can use it now that it’s done. It’s a very simple blanket with a black border; both acrylic yarn so you can wash the dickens out of it. This took a giant skein of pink yarn so this is a pretty decent dent in my stash!
This one is a gift but eventually I’ll be selling these as well. 🙂
