Well hello there fellow crafters, sorry its taken me awhile to write another blog post the reason will become clear later on in this post lol.
I finally finshed the crochet blanket for my nephew ( just waiting for him to put in a appearence now), due date the 22nd so not long now, here is the said blanket, let me know what you think!
I have also been trying out cabling for the first time and have now finshed a scarf, photos will be put up soon as the sun comes back out.
The reason for me trying cabling other then trying out new things is i want to knit a handbag and matching purse for my sisters birthday and i wanted it to have cables so i had to teach myself to cable knit!.
Also on folksy they have a promotion going where sellers can join in by listing one item a day everyday of the month and for some sellers it seems to be working quite well, i've been checking out the listings and they look good.
I want to be able to join in one month but it seems to take me soo long to knit items i'm trying to do some now so at least i have enough for 2 weeks which would then give me enough time to make items for the last 2 weeks, so far i have enough for 5 days!! ( see i told you i was slow!).
Well this months sellers are called july jesters and here are a few that are taking part please check out thier shops
lizdyson aka The Little Bead Shop
and that is just a few , well i thought if nothing else i would have a full shop by the end of the month, mind you fingers crossed for a sale as i have'nt had one on folksy since march.
Luckliy i have had custom orders to keep me going!.
heres one of my custom orders for toddler slippers! sweet huh.
well i'd best get back to the knitting or i wont make september or august lol.
