I did it!! I finished my 12 sweaters and hats. I was asked by Born Yesterday a baby boutique in Philadelphia to make them sweaters! Here the are! Whew!
So thrilled to be done and able to work on some fall inventory for my store.

Broken Toe = knitting time

So that title isn’t totally true. The weekend after I had time to knit. But when your in pain you don’t really want to do anything. So I did get some knitting time. But then my hubby went on a 3 day business trip leaving me to hobble after the children. No knitting possible while hobbling.

So how did this happen you wonder. Or at least the X-Ray tech did. Well, my almost 2 yr old was next to me standing on one of the tall kitchen stools and decided to start dancing around. I had my arm around him just incase so when the stool tipped my grip tightened and not paying attention to the stool didn’t notice it falling for my feet. Yup, collective cringe and you know what happened next. My almost 2er heard a lot of words he had never heard before. And then we both cried together.

And now off to knit something for my friend down the road who’s baby came … Yup! Early! Sometimes I wish I hand a couple sets of hands.

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
