This has been a productive month as far as crafting goes! I got my first sale from my Etsy Shop, Well Tempered Designs, and I’ve been building up my inventory of basket liners and children’s accessories getting ready for the approaching craft fair season. This will be my first go at craft fairs and I couldn’t be more excited! In addition to Etsy projects, I’ve done some pretty cool personal projects as well.
Aleksa’s shortage of diaper covers, as well as her ability to rapidly unhook velcro, has led me to make her some more wool covers. This one is just in time for fourth of July and is ready to go! Next up, I’ll make a few for the twins. Today, I finally finished a cowl that has been in the works for almost 2 years! Cameron bought me some beautiful cream colored frog tree merino wool for Christmas in 2011. After looking at cowl patterns for months, I decided to knit the Casu Cowl by Galia Lael. The pattern is written beautifully! I finally got around to making the cowl in December 2012 and had to put it on hold for a while because I ran out of yarn (I wanted it to be super long)…also I got kinda bored knitting it so I needed a break. After finding another ball of the merino at Alamitos Bay Yarn Company, I finally finished it! Here’s a link to the project in ravelry.
This month, I got to make a few bears for twins as well! They were way overdue for a knit a stuffed animal from me and I was so excited to knit the Laura Long Three Hungry Bears pattern again from Knitted Toy Tales.
