It can be difficult for me to really document everything I make on this blog. I craft faster than I blog, as it were. I'm a planner; while I'm working on a project, I usually have a little monologue going in my head (um, yes, I am crazy) and sometimes I come up with clever little blogposts sure to spark my memory if I read it years letter, and of course delight and amuse every reader who comes to my site. Problem is, when it comes to the nitty-gritty of actually stopping, photographing my projects, uploading the photos, and actually remembering my clever little blogpost and writing it down... well, the nice way of putting it is: it doesn't always work out. I may have 15 minutes to post, but I feel like I should put more time into it and give a proper, all-encompassing entry, so therefore, I post nothing at all, and whole projects- many of them- go un-blogged! The biggest problem there is that one of the reasons I started blogging was to keep a record of what I make, since most of it is sold or given as gifts.
M-H, cut it out with your procrastination/perfectionism issues and just post. Post a dumb little photo with the simplest of captions and call it a day. And also, improve your posture and be an all-around better person, 'kay? Start now! Show 'em what your workin' with!
pincushions, of course...
with matching tape measures. That black on the bottom is lambskin... so luxe, but also morally questionable. I bought some remnants at my friendly local fabric store, Gypsy's Palace...
which now carries pincushions, handmade by me!
Of course they come with little pins. These have been such a great way to use up some of my button stash!
I'm truly trying to spread the shrinky-dink love everywhere I go. My friend Hope (where is your blog, Hope? It would be the Best Blog of All the Bestest Blogs!) and I had a shrinky-dink playdate. Good times. I love her little castle design, which you can see in the picture above.
I'm very excited about my future t-shirt: supersoft Munki-Munki cowboy jersey, cut and ready to go. Gosh, I love that print.
There was a book signing for Greetings from Knit Cafe! Hooray! That's the sleeve of the Chanel-ish Cardigan I designed hanging in the corner. It was so neat to see all the beautiful projects from the book hung around the store. I bought yarn for the tipping of the polo shirt from the book (I already had the main color in my stash). Suzan is wearing the polo in the picture above; my version will be cream with butter yellow tipping. Mmmm.
This sweater got Jacob's approval. I must agree, it is a nice sweater. You can always count on Mr. Rogers for that.
Funky ribbing (OK, funky for Mr. Rogers) on the arms means the sleeves are more fun to knit, right? I think so!
