Crickets Have Stopped

So I have had crickets for activity for my store for a while. Just nothing going on… I’m promoting my little brains out and FINALLY!!! Got some action!!

I had a customer request a yellow purse with a blue strap and a button closure…so here it is. And now off to make a baby jacket and bear for another. KEEP IT COMING!!!!

Wear your art like your heart on your sleeve…

This just resonated with me in such a huge way!!! I wanted to share.

“Wear your art like your heart on your sleeve and keep it alive by making people feel a little better. Feel a little lighter. Create art in order for yourself to become yourself and let your very existence be your song, your poem, your story. Let your very identity be your book.” ― Charlotte Eriksson

Holy Blog Batman

Yup It’s been AGES! With sick kids and crazy snow and snow days galore, it’s been a little crazy and I’ve been off the Blog circuit. So hopping back on the horse. Christmas was busy crazy with knitting for family and friends. Yup just family and friends. But still immensely rewarding. Here are some of the things I knit for them.

I made this for my Niece and let me tell you , I want one too! I got the pattern from https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnaidDesigns She’s got some great patterns!

Poncho skullponcho

I made the skull poncho for my Nephew’s daughter and the Poncho for a friends daughter. I wanted to make one more for another friend but ran out of time.

What I didn’t take pictures of Arm warmers, 3 scarves and a Capelet …

But I did this in Grey and a Variegated turquoise blue yarn. And I had started in October! Clearly not early enough and because I was so ahead I thought “OH I have SO much time” and then it was 2 days before Christmas and I was knitting till midnight every night. Sigh. Note to self, start earlier and don’t think you have all the time in the world!

So that is my catch up. Hopefully I will stay on time of it a bit better!

I started it thinking “what is this all about?” But pretty much instantly enjoyed taking photos and trying new shots. I’ve become a bit of a instagram addict.  Do you love it? Are you on it? Or do you avoid it (like my hubby)? Now I’m always on the lookout for a cool shot. I thought I’d share some with you. If you’re on Instagram take a look at my scenery and knit projects. My username is bylala2. Please feel free to share your instagram page with me, I love to follow others and see the beautiful sites from all over the world!

My First Custom Order on Etsy

So exciting, and thrilling and terrifying. Can I actually make two sweaters and two hats in 2-3 days. Well the answer is Yes I Can! I ran after my kids all day with needles and yarn in hand. It was crazy but I did it. So thrilling to ship it off Saturday Morning in a blizzard! But I love being my own boss!

I didn’t get a picture of the two sweaters together but here’s one complete one.Image
