I now have 9 sweaters in my queu at ravelry. I am also working on wisteria by Kate Gilbert. I am about 45% along on this sweater. I have made the decision that I will complete at least 6 of these sweaters by this time next year. I tried to add a few things that I have never done and also vary the plain knit with the cables and lace and color work instead of doing it all together. I also tried to choose different styles. I will also have to get a few other projects done in additon to these. Daughter 2 wants a skirt, Daughter 1 wants a cape, and son wants a fur hat. I know that with all I have to do, this seems a little ambitious, but I really am in need of sweaters. I only have a couple and either they are too old, don't fit, or I just don't like them anymore.

Diamond lace scarf

This scarf took me FOREVER!!! First I spun lace weight singles and then I knit right from the bobbin. I love it, though. It is for sale in my etsy shop.


I just added items to my new Etsy shop. Some of them are on the side bar.

I was procrastinating about it, but a lady from town asked me to bring some of my hand spun to her home last weekend because she was participating in the town wide craft / boutique fair. Well, I had to get everything labeled and in a hurry. Procrastination, over. I will add new items in a few days, but I am testing the waters right now.

Etsy has pretty fair listing policies. You pay $0.20 for each item listed and when it sells you pay a percentage of the sale to them. If it does not sell, you owe them nothing. Let me know what you think.
