It’s been a little while since I last blogged, but now it’s feeling like autumn I’m definitely in more of a knitting mood!
I’ve been having problems with sticking to just one project just lately, does anyone else get that? I just want to knit all the things! I’m currently surrounded by 8 different projects. I’m making a chunky jacket/cardigan, a lovely fair isle yoked sweater, two pairs of socks, some fair isle mittens, a scarf, and two shawls. Goodness me, I’m never going to finish anything 😆
I can’t even say that much of it is for presents like they would usually be by this time of year – everything is for me except one shawl. I would like to make more presents, I’m just not sure what to go for. I made all my knit worthy friends fingerless mitts last year, so can’t really do gloves. Scarves take too long, only one friend would appreciate a shawl (already cast on and going reasonably well!) and I’m just a bit stumped really. I’m sure I’ll work something out, and in the meantime at least I have plenty to work on!
In other news, my Etsy shop is still ticking over quite nicely – I’ve been working on my advent calendar over the summer and I’m really excited to be putting it all together! I’ve had an amazing time picking out all the extra gifts that are going into it, I really hope the people who receive one love them as much as I do!
I’m also pleased to say I’ll be starting up my own website soon which will link into the shop but also let me be more creative and put more of myself into what I do. I’ll also be creating a mailing list so I can send out news and coupon codes directly to those who are interested rather than just relying on Instagram to get the word out there!
Next up on my dyeing list will be Christmas themed yarn. I’ll be doing some sock sets on merino and nylon 4ply and on a pretty sparkle base, and I’ll be dyeing up some festive mini skeins along with some winter themed ones! Lots of new goodies to look forward to. I’m hoping to be able to get in some more mohair and silk yarn too, but my supplier is out of stock again, so that will have to wait!
I hope you’re all feeling lovely and creative, and that you’re all making things that make you happy.
Talk again soon,
