All these crochet washcloths will be up in the shop very soon!
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.
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.
