I Still Knit January 19, 2012

Seriously. I'm not just tossing back malted milk balls over here. I'm WORKING.

I swear to God, I still knit. I’ve been up to my ample ass in special orders, though at this point it seems there’s a bit of a light at the end of the tunnel.

Today, I’m officially stalking the mail carrier because she should be bringing me a package of yarn any day now. With that fabulous fiber, I can make the last three orders on my list. I have one more order in negotiations, and then, God willing, I might be able to make some new stuff to list in my shop.

It’s cold as shit here as of late.  We had a mild winter so far, then all of a sudden…WHAM.  On the plus side, people are ordering woolens from me like there’s an anticipated sheep shortage in the works, but it hasn’t left a lot of time for me to make the projects that are scratching around in my brain.  On the down side, this kind of cold is insidious when you have an old house like mine, and even with the pellet stove going constantly, the space heater on in the living room, and the furnace up, my feet are still freezing most of the time.

First up on my list of Fun Things to Make:  felted wool slippers for myself.  Damn, I’m cold!

You know I’d rather see your knitting than anyone else’s (except maybe God, but I hear He’s more into latch hooking these days..finds the regularity rather soothing), so you just keep on knittin’ and pooh to those who complain. Just stay warm and don’t kill nobody.

I love that penguin!
Man, when do I get some of that “winter” I’ve heard so much about?
