Time flies when you are working outside the studio. I'm back this weekend, in the studio, with so many things to make I can't quite keep them all straight. So, right now I keep moving from project, to sticky note, to another project, to knitting notes, to the computer, and then to another knitting project. The question is, will anything get finished? That remains to be seen.
I had a request from "across the pond". A1 needs some indoor shoes to keep her toes cozy in the evenings when she's working about the house. My first thought was, "Make her some felted slippers! I could get some great colors and put suede bottoms on them so she doesn't slip, then embroider them with flowers and decorative stitching!" My second thought was, "You have no time, buy her some online." Well, dear readers, I am one slipper in and the other one is on the needles. Are you surprised? I did manage to resist buying new yarn. I am bound and determined to do most of my Holiday knitting and gift making from supplies I already have. (More on Handmade Holidays later!) So I chose charcoal and black, out of my stash, with the idea I would put on some colorful stitching after they are felted.
That being said, I do have a big pile of new yarn.
In my defense, this is for, what we hope to be, a fun video for work. I'm excited, but there is a ton of prep work to be done!
I am also holding out the hope that I can get to this project.
I've been wanting to weave a rug for the bathroom, old jeans and hemp!
Wish me luck! Have a happy, project filled Saturday!
