Who knew a crochet/yarn career would be this busy? I haven't been updating my blog that often (my apologies for that) because of the insurmountable work I have been faced with lately. I'm not complaining at all - it's just that I wish I have more time to do more things. But I love what I'm doing and I promise exciting projects and events for those who love crochet and yarn :)
So what have I been up to lately?
For one, I have been organizing my yarn stocks. Not stash, take note, but stocks. A year ago, if you told me I'd have this much yarn, I wouldn't believe you. I started with these yarn bins
in an effort to make sense out of the boxes that are sprawling in my room.
While the organizing is happening, I have also been preparing for the launch of my latest offerings in my store. There's Hamanaka, which will be available in our store beginning October 27.
And the latest yarn from Red Heart! Soft, Celebration, and Creme de la Creme! These will be available in our store beginning November 4.
I have also been crocheting a shawl made up of 100+ pieces of african flower motifs! I'm halfway there already. More of this on a future blog post.
If crocheting that is not enough, I found time to make this combination of a beanie and scarf from one of the latest pattern books of Hamanaka. I just did this yesterday (fresh off the hook!). I couldn't resist making it. My hands were itching to make something else so I did it. I used Hamanaka's Yasai-Batake yarn, made of 100% soft wool. I will be offering this as a made-to-order item beginning November. More of this on a future blog post.
Oh, yeah, and there's the bedspread
. I'm on it as well, but that's another story :) There are so much motifs involved!
Yeah, I have been pretty busy. It's the great kind of busy though. So now, back to work, b*&%*h! [This song does wonders. It makes me really productive.]
Wow, your stocks look like a real yarn store's would! Is it possible to take a look? :D I sent you a message on Ravelry about this, too.ReplyDelete
