I have managed to get a couple of new items made for my Etsy shop. My inventory, that wasn't that large to start with, got much smaller since the Holidays as I sold quite a bit and gave away a lot for Christmas. That's good, though, right?
I finished this chunky creamy white neckwarmer a couple of nights ago and finally got it up on Etsy about 1/2 an hour ago. It's knit from 100% Sherpa wool. It's really warm and comfortable, but for someone that's bothered by wool I would suggest wearing it over a turtleneck. I wore it myself around the house for a while and hated to take it off.
Last week I finished another mini tea cup pincushion. These little mini ones are just so darn cute. I almost hate parting with them.
I maybe showed this half apron before, I can't remember. I was going to save it for myself, but instead decided to give it to my sister-in-law. She's been taking care of her mother (my mother-in-law) who's very ill with cancer and she also just got married and re-modeled her darling kitchen. I thought this apron would go so well with her kitchen and thought she might appreciate it. These are old fashioned hats on the fabric.
I need to make more aprons. I have several ideas in my head as soon as I get a little more time.
The knitting project I'm working on now is a lace patterned scarf with a pastel mini mochi yarn. It's very light and airy and feminine. I've learned not to work on this pattern while tired late at night. I keep making mistakes and have to rip out stitches. Two steps forward, one step back. Takes a long time to finish at this rate.
