So lots of things that I promised you haven't happened yet. Number one amongst those is getting stuff up for sale on Etsy. I had the best intentions, I set up a make shift photo studio, I took a bunch of shots of everything...and they were all terrible! I've been embarrassed to put them up! I'm working on getting a little photography light box set up to try to correct that. I may go ahead and put up the items with the sub-par pictures anyway just to get the ball rolling and keep my shop from sitting empty. If anyone out there is a photographer who wants to trade photos for crocheted goods, you just let me know!
The craft shows were fun, but the sales weren't quite what we were hoping, and that's ok. I now have tons of stock, which is a good feeling! I also managed to drum up some commissioned pieces. Top of that list are these great slippers!
And one more thing...here's a little hounds-tooth scarf I've been working on as a gift to myself (the picture might be a little too close up to show the pattern):
