On the left is the sweater I just knitted and on the right are the crocheted socks I finished recently. The socks are a gift I haven’t sent out, yet. I’m keeping the sweater. I’m really selfish like that.
I’m thinking very hard about doing some things that I might want to sell, or give more regularly. I have several ideas, but I haven’t really given myself over to any of them. I feel like I need a schtick if I’m going to open a storefront.
That’s kind of the same thing for my little code-ideas and my writing. I feel I need more of a schtick. I don’t want to re-invent the wheel all the time. Of course that’s a good way to learn.
I really like the sweater.
I’m less thrilled about the socks. It’s my first time with that yarn and that pattern, and they’re a little bulkier than I had hoped, but they make good boot socks or house socks, especially if one put some of the puffy paint on the soles. Most of my crocheted socks come out a little chunky. Crochet’s just a thicker material, although the lace it makes can be gorgeous. I’m still in love with the dress I made last year. I think I’ll make another.
Wonder Woman and Illyria are still in the production stage… I might work harder soon with Halloween coming up. I’ve got a dress I want to make, too, from the pretty brocade I got on sale. If I stopped doing anything else, I could make some awesome things for the house that is falling apart around me and that I can’t let anyone in while appointments go unmade and various things pass and go undone. I need a schedule coach. Absolutely.
