It is so pretty out there! Of course, I say that from safe and warm on my couch, fire between me and the outdoors. 🙂
I did go out around 10, and will again in a few minutes – we have to make sure to keep the vent for the hot water clear or we have no heat. That would be bad.
Going out there this morning made me wish I had finished my warm mittens, so I am working on them today. I hope to get them done this afternoon.
I also worked on some valentines, which I put up for sale over at Etsy.
As recommended by you lovely readers, I explored the forums and got feedback on my listings. Titles are longer now, tags more closely match, and things come up in a search, if you know what to search for! Now, to make them come up when you DON’T know what to search for. That is my next challenge. The last link I posted didn’t work well, apparently, so please, try this one, and feel free to look and comment if you like. Or shop! 🙂 http://www.etsy.com/shop/SalpalCrafts
Here’s my favorite card from this batch:
I made a similar one to give to A. That is one trouble I can foresee – making things to sell and still making fresh things for family…Do I just make tons, put them up for sale, give what doesn’t sell? Or make duplicates? Or make completely different ones? I suspect I will do all of these at some point. But for now, it is immaterial as nothing has sold. 🙂 I’ll use them for family if they are still here in a week or so.
Now, out to shovel, then back to knit mittens.
(By the way, I finished the body of the blue sweater, it is up drying out, neatly blocked. Sleeves are cast on and slowly but surely growing. I hope to wear it this winter. 🙂 )
