To say hello and catch up. I did have such a nice Thanksgiving break and was quite lazy on Friday and Sunday.
Got lots of knitting and spinning done, and some photographs of things I have finished recently. I really had to do that because I wanted to get some of them listed for sale on the Etsy shop.
I took these hats to work and some sold, but some have made it over to the shop.
So slowly I am restocking the shop, and of course, as always my timing could be way off. Need to get the ornaments on there so that they have time to sell this season!
I did finish spinning my October Challenge yarn, and will share it with you when I can, again, in January. It turned out to be more of a challenge than I thought, and did not come out as I expected it to, but it came out as yarn and I will use it, so that is good! All I can show you is how it started. Which is pretty!
For knitting, I worked out the pattern on some custom ornaments that a friend ordered, and got started on knitting them. She ordered two, and I am halfway through the second one. She also ordered a hat, and I will pick up the yarn for that this weekend, and see if I can’t knock that out.
It is also time to think about making the Christmas cards! Especially as some are going overseas. I have a vague idea what they will be, but need to settle into that project. I was hoping to do some of that this past week, but it just didn’t happen.
A is really busy with her new venture. She has a deadline to hit, and it is turning out to be a longer process than she originally thought, so she is working hard each and every day. She works in the living room on Sundays so that we can spend time together, but it isn’t; the same as being able to do things together. Still she is getting paid by the piece, so the harder and faster she goes, the more she earns. And this project will be done in a month or so. Then I am sure she will find another one to launch into. At least, I hope so, since she is now self employed. But I hope that she can figure out a schedule and pricing that let her have a day off each week!
That’s about it from here – hope you are having a good week!
