I originally blamed gaming and computer access, but, alas, I was always this way. From one craft to another, about 1/2 dozen projects going at the same time. In this month, I've spun, knit, felted, wire worked, and sewn. At times I wonder at the amount I could achieve if I focused on only one...
Knitting:I am happy with this! It took about 2 oz of merino/tencel top, and it was FUN to knit them, and since I LOVE earrings, I'm tickled to do them as a set for my Sockdiva shop. I've gone CRAZY buying fiber. I have a Gems and Mineral colorway Merino to make into another fingerless glove/earring set. I'm knitting socks for Socks for Japan
and want to write up the pattern, all proceeds of which will go to Japan relief.I've purchased a lovely merino/bamboo fiber to spin and knit into a baby jacket and booties for my cousin Karen, who's expecting soon.
...and I'm getting enamored of needle/wet felting!!
Phattie state of mind...
I'm doing these for the April Phat box.
I'm certainly doing my part! Besides making ~25 of these to add to boxes, I'm also buying YUMMY fibers from other Phatties.
I love knitting socks, but I also love fingerless gloves! So I decided to knit some with matching earrings to offer in my shop.
This gorgeous stuff is fiber from FunHouse
and she's awesome! She really is fun and goofy, and makes creates amazing colorways. Dust bunnies actually ruled my spinning wheel and took residence, but after I banished them, the Joy was still friendly to me, and I sat all evening and just spun yarn. I need to do it more often....oh, that's right! I ordered even more fiber, so I guess I will.
