Yep, it all happened in that order. I was going to blog about my vacation, but it’s severely lacking in excitement compared to opening up my Etsy Shop! Holy crapola batman! I finally did it! Please let me know what you think ya’ll. Seriously. Because I love you, if you decide to purchase a skein, please let me know in your purchase that you saw me mention the shop on my blog and I’ll give you 10% off.
Special thank you to our Opal for designing my banner. She did such a good job, and I love her for it. I seriously hope you guys like my creations. If you have any special requests, let me know!
I also finished my Haruni! Yay! This was an awesome knit, and I will definitely make one again! I will say that it was a definite nail biter at the end though.. Apparently you are supposed to use up nearly half of your yarn on the final chart. Which is very true. And I had 9 grams remaining. I was scared. I had combed through the stash to find an acceptable yarn to bind off with, or, worst case scenario, re-knit Chart B with. Thank god, I did not have to use any additional yarn.
I will say though, that this would be a great shawl to use two colors on, as the lace patterns are so dramatically different. Daniele is using two colors, and I can’t wait to see her end result!
Check out my army of pins! It’s a shame they can’t march -or- stand up straight. Very little discipline around here, as you can see.
Yeah, I had to dip into the sewing pins in order to block this beautiful lady out.
Oh and I spun some over the weekend, too.
(I don’t know what’s going on! I’m loosing my mind, sure enough..)
These pretties are part of an Enchanted Knoll Happy Hooves Club shipment – 3 oz of falkland roving, 3 oz of a matchy-matchy batt. Here’s the roving!
They look so similar when they are all arranged in their little puffs, don’t they? I love spinning like this every once in a while. I just turn the music up and let the fiber do what it wants! Normally I am ridiculously methodical in my planning and execution, which is good, but some times we just need to let go and let things take their course. I can’t even begin to tell you how free I felt after I did this. I’m completely surprised you guys didn’t see me running naked through the streets of Fayetteville.
God, I even scare myself.
Happy Monday people! Don’t forget to buy some yarn!
