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!
Yes, yes, I know. I don’t update my shop often but I have been working on it!
This (sort of) self-striping yarn is 23 inches long and acrylic yarn. It will be up at my shop within the next couple days if you are interested in purchasing it or any other of my handmade items! 😀
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:
- Get healthy enough to run a marathon
- Knit or Crochet all my stash yarn
- Learn to knit in the round
- Draw my own book covers
- Defeat all the clutter
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?
