I'll be casting on the lovely hyacinth yarn to make a soaker for a customer.
I have too many knitting projects, lol! This is a good thing, though it feels like I'll never catch up with my own stuff since opening Bozu Bottoms. I am now working on my 6th sale, although since the beginning of 2010, this is my 14th project. Plus I have a skirt for Lilia (about 50% complete) on another set of needles, and another cocoon (65% complete) on a second set of needles. On top of that, I really want to make a hat and hair kerchief for myself, as well as make a few hair kerchiefs and hair accessories. These I want to sell so I can donate something towards Japan. And we won't talk about my desire to make a few overall/coveralls as well (and more soakers and shorties for Liam...)
My knitting has been consuming me a little, and it's not really a bad thing. As crappy as the weather has been, it definitely combats boredom and cabin fever. Not perfectly, mind you, but at least I'm not feeling as restless as I usually am this time of year. It might be a bit more difficult when the weather is nice, although I can totally picture myself bring the needles and yarn and just sitting outdoors while I knit.
The best part, in my opinion, of doing so much knitting is that I'm learning so much. I think each piece I do gets a little bit better, and I feel better with every piece that's purchased and given a good review. And I've been getting enough sales that I don't feel like I'm wasting money and time, which is a really good feeling. (And to be honest, after so many years as a stay-at-home mom, it feels good to contribute to the finances, even if it's just a tiny contribution.)
