I've been up to a LOT. Here are a few snapshots of the new things I've been doing.
First up, I've been dying up mini-skeins for "Mood Sock Kits." The basic premise of these kits is that you knit a basic sock pattern and change skeins depending on your mood at the time of knitting. I made them geeky, of course, and I've been putting them up on my Etsy store in themed "editions." I have done Doctor Who, Firefly, and the Avengers so far, and all have been very successful.
I've also begun spinning my own yarn! This is super exciting for me because I (of course) need another hobby like I need a hole in the head XD. These 2 skeins were spun using a drop spindle, but I recently acquired an electric spinning wheel as well, and I'm super excited about the results I'm getting with that (it's also about 10 times faster!). Every skein I spin gets better, so I'm sure I'll be a pro in no time :)
I've also begun dyeing roving. Some of it I plan to put in my Etsy store to sell, and some of it I plan to spin up myself. This was my first ever attempt.
I plan to keep this blog updated more regularly as I get into different things and as my business grows! ^_^
