      No Comments on Expelli-d’oh

No, it’s not my magic wand, though I guess if I DID have one, it would be a knitting needle. No, this is a tacit reminder of why I almost never use straight needles anymore — one can get lost. One HAS gotten lost, and while I have another pair in this size, I’m super annoyed to have one of… Read more »

Making Progress

      No Comments on Making Progress

I have made some minor progress on getting earrings listed and organised. Which is to say, the easy ones are mainly done. The main problem now is trying to figure out how I am going to do the listings. With the shell bead ones, there are three different styles, and lots of different potential colours, so it’s trying to figure… Read more »

Photograph-ary

I am grudgingly starting to get the earrings I’ve made listed. This has requires me to attempt to find ways to get the earrings  positioned for best photographing, hence the little yellow triangles. It seems to be helping a bit, though I had to make a little one a bit flatter to get… well. Angles. Things. Fancy, ha ha. I… Read more »

Such a Heel

      No Comments on Such a Heel

I turned the heel on the sock yesterday and started down the body of the foot. It generally goes pretty quickly from this point, so yay for that. I’m mildly annoyed because I don’t know what my project is going to be. Well. I’m going to do a cat hat or two to donate for our charity event in September,… Read more »

The weather was cooler today, which was lovely. I had a trip to the post office in mind already, so I made it a slightly longer one so I could hit up the Gym down the road. While out, it finally struck me that yes, we haven’t had rain in over a month now. I don’t think I’ve ever seen… Read more »

List-a-rama

I have done a good job of not moving today — A++ not moving, ha ha. I did eventually get to starting the photography for to list the things I made for the fete on the Etsy shop. I’ve gotten through the handful of extra adult bracelets, and have gotten a start on the kid bracelets. I got Smalls to… Read more »

Filling Boxes

      No Comments on Filling Boxes

I got the earring stock moved to a new box this morning, and then finished making the amount of stock that I wanted to have to hand. So like, there’s over 80 pairs of earrings? I sincerely doubt I’ll get through all of them at the fete, but I’m kind of proud of myself for getting goodies made and stashed…. Read more »

Grinding Levels

One of my favourite Ctrl+Alt+Del strips of Ye Olden Days was one about Ethan buying  bunch of food with the intention of grinding his cooking skill. That is sort of how I am feeling today, but in earring making. I’ve made over 20 pairs today, and currently plan to continue making more. Z and I talked about it, and we agreed… Read more »

The Flip Side

      No Comments on The Flip Side

I decided I was going to try to focus my efforts on getting the blanket finished. It takes up a lot of space in my crafting area, so getting it done and moved off would be a Good Thing™®. It’s pleasant to look upon and I was starting to get a good pace before we hit dinnertime. Hopefully I can… Read more »

Hard at Work

I have been putting my hands to crafting today. The missing order finally showed up, so I was able to make a few of the rainbow bracelets for my shop. One sold pretty quickly as I sort of expected, but it still makes me grin. Everything else today has been dedicated towards getting more things into the crochet marker quarter… Read more »
