I cannot believe it's been so long since I posted here.... weeks have passed...I have had a rather busy but productive month.
Firstly projects, I've knitted many things recently and I'm trying to knit quick baby items in between my own projects. I have a friend in England who's baby is due in 6 weeks and another friend who has 4 1/2 months to go. I've also been dyeing whenever I can squeeze it in and working full time hours at the day job.
Here are a few recent finished projects:
Ishbel knitted for Clasheen in the recent Color Swap 7. She loved it. I dyed the yarn in her favorite colours.
I have started a new Ishbel in Sublime Sock Yarn (merino/silk) which I dyed in Oriental Red. I am thinking that I may end up sending it to my Mother In Law because I know she would really love it.
I dyed up some bulky weight skeins as an experiment in my shop, to see if they sell. I have had many conversations about this with my friends that also dye/sell and we all seem to think that DK, worsted, bulky etc doesn't/won't sell. I had a few skeins of DK weight and worsted in my shop, lovely colours but I only ever sold one of them. I didn't mind because I have knitted them up myself now. So I have 3 skeins to list, we shall see what happens.
On the baking front I made these:
Choux buns filled with chantilly cream and fudgy chocolate topping. Very naughty but nice, I made 16 of them. I ate one then made my Husband take the rest to work!
