How were the holidays for you and your family?
They were good for my son and I, but, boy, am I glad they are over!
I had a pretty uneventful week, which is good! I have done a lot of crocheting, carding and spinning. I did design and make a great hat, pictured to the left here. I call it my "Oohlala Hat". I absolutely love it and now I need one in every color for myself! I made it as a customer request and have already had several more ordered. Which is great, because I love making pretty things! It can be made in any size/color/ribbon color or even without the ribbon. If you want one (or two) you can order through my etsy shop- http://www.etsy.com/shop/YarntasticCreation ,
or contact me on my Facebook page-
On the spinning front, I've been processing and spinning an alpaca/wool blend all week. One more week of this one and I should be finished with that particular contract, then it's back to making my
'Packer yarn. I am glad to be getting back into the swing of things after the holidays!
I'm going to try my hand at writing patterns this year. I have several in mind, starting with The OohLaLa Hat! There are a couple more I have in my head from making the items, it's just getting them down on paper that is going to be the hard part. I always change up items that I create a little bit as I go, trying to make improvements.
Here's hoping that the coming week holds good things in store, for me and you both!
