There is so much going on, most of it positive, thank the gods! 3xcept the coffee thing….coffee (I absolutely love coffee) has been giving me horrendous heartburn lately, so for the last few weeks I’ve been drinking to tea. I so miss my coffee, but I dont miss the heartburn, so a win i guess.
I’ve been knitting, still on the v-neck boxy, love it, but ordered another skein of yarn to make absolutely sure I don’t run out. I’ve decided to modify by making it long sleeve, and a little longer in the body than the pattern calls for.
I have also been slowly writing up several sock patterns. I now have a basic pattern written up for both fingering and dk, my patterns charted. Just a little more work and I should have them ready for publication. Of course, I’m kind of scared to take that step, so it may be a little while yet.
Returning to work was stressful. I was very worried business would be slow, that I couldn’t meet my financial obligations. I do believe I will be okay, given how busy we were this past week. My boss also gave me a 2$ an hour raise, and has already asked that I work more hours. I think I’ll be alright.
My yarn dyeing is slow right now, I had to wait for my last 4 weeks of unemployment; since my year was up in the beginning of April I had to recertify. Thay finally came through, paid all the bills and ordered more yarn. This time around I’ll be dyeing some ultra sparkly sock, and some non superwash merino fingering. I’m excited to try out some different bases. I want to do some sock blanks with this batch, also. I’m thinking gradients. I also had to replace a few dye colors.
I have big plans for the future of my shop, with different items I’d like to add to my inventory, but that will take some time.
Oh, and I decided to trade my phone in! I always wait until my phone has absolutely gasped it’s last and settle for whatever the insurance sends me. Not this time! I have ordered the galaxy s21 ultra, and gotten a fabulous trade in for my s9. Eric talked me into treating myself, mostly because the average on the s21 is drool worthy, and thays what I wanted. It will be here tomorrow! I do believe Eric has ulterior motives. For the past 8 months he has been buying boas and ball pythons to begin a breeding project. Snakes are not my favorite, but he loves them, so I deal. And don’t worry, we won’t be discussing them very often in here! We just have alot of future plans that are shaping up well, and I am excited!
No pics today, I am currently trying to get all the pics and videos backed up from my phone , and its taking forever!
