I have started four blogs over the past week, and none of them got published because I just keep thinking of more things to add, and then I drift away to something, and never get back to finishing. So here’s what I’m gonna do to quit that. Short to the point with one or two pics and Bam! That’s what I’ve got for the day. Lets see if I can get back in the groove of blogging things, because I just looked through last years appointment book, and really, that’s all the memories I have of last year is 52 weeks of 5-12 appointments a week. Pretty sad eh? I need knitting and crafting memories. So here we go (she says again. blah)
What I’m working on right this minute! Like right now, today! I’ve started a third Six Day Kid Blanket! I cannot show the first two yet, because they are baby shower presents, but here is the twin size one (11 points) that I am currently working on, and the four colors I am using.
And I am also spinning up a lot of my white fibers, because Easter is coming!!!! And Easter means fiber dying, but this year I want to dye some natural yarns I got from Knit Picks about five years ago or more, and I figured I do at least a couple of my own skeins as well and see how it goes. And then yeah, I think I’ll dye the rest of my white fiber in vivid colors also!
At the beginning of this week I worked on boodles and boodles of woven stuffed hearts. Now I am just working on red, pink, bright pink, purple, and white hearts. Gotta have those solid colors for people who don’t think blue, yellow, or orange hearts are acceptable for selling. Chatted with a guy waiting in the dr’s office the other day that didn’t understand why I was making a grey and dark red heart. He didn’t think that was very acceptable, but I told him, to my friend that went to Ohio State that those were extremely acceptable colors! You bring fooooozeball colors into it, and suddenly his eyes were opened! lol So now I have a total of 78 hearts ready, and if I can get that up to around 150 in the next couple of weeks, I will feel more ready for craft fairs. Little things like these hearts, and hair clips, and dishcloths sell out so quickly. I’m gonna try to keep ahead of the curve this year.
Charity knitting: I’m working on three more pairs of slippers for the Pink Slipper Project. My second set of three this year. And I have a couple dozen baby hats going out to a hospital in Detroit that was all out of baby boy hats and preemie items. So this is my first round of goodness to them, and I’m working on another package that will hopefully go out in May or June.
