Scarves and Yarn Stashes
No pictures of my work, I’m afraid.
I did a lot better at my 2nd craft sale. While I only soldÂ items to one customer, I was in the same boat as other vendors, and traded a lot ofÂ items. I now have beautifulÂ shades of purple and magenta mixing bowls from Tupperware, plus other goodies, mwahaha!
Two of my infinity scarves sold, so that was nice as well. Â ::smiles:: I am still swamped under scarves and need… well, more. Sort of :P They are excellent samplers, and a nice way to learn new techniques. For example, I got tired of waiting for my cabling needles to arrive from China, and I’m attempting cables for the first time… without any extra special tools! Go me!
::struts:: I’m ridiculously proud of myself, andÂ you know what? It even looks good, if I do say so myself (and I do).
I haven’t figured out how to go about listing them for sale… but I’m sure it’s going to be stiff competition, whether it’s on Facebook or Etsy. Of course, the girls lose scarves almost as quickly as they lose their mittens, so I may not have extras to spare. ::laughs:: Their school will also accept donations, so I have options, one way or another.
As forÂ zee stash, it is filled with practical, and not-so-practical stuff to knit with. I boughtÂ yarn that wasÂ pretty, with no ideaÂ what I’d knit, so I have lots and lots ofÂ pairs of skeins, meaning I only have enough of one colour to, well, make a scarf. Heh.
WhileÂ sorting today, I took this picture (for shopping purposes. Don’t you ever do that?).
IÂ am one of those people who can never leave things well enough alone; I’ve found a sweater pattern I want to tackle andÂ I’m thinking this yarn may be an acceptable substitute. Probably shouldn’t mess with changing the fiber type when size matters, but it will be a learning experience no matter how it turns out.
I am behind on some orders for ornaments for friends (none sold, but family and friends like ’em!). Extra appointments on top of shuttling children to extra-curricular activities. This candle is pretty much burnt out. Blah.
Oh oh oh! Don’t recall if I saidÂ some of my jewelry is being sold at Strange Things Emporium? Apparently some of it has already sold ::preens:: I will have to go down in person and see what’s gone and whether I should supply similar items.
That’s all for now,
