An update:

TO DO List No. 1 of 2011

  • Finish wash cloths (buy new green yarn to do so), photograph, and list (DONE & SOLD!!!)
  • Photograph and list candy colored wash cloths (DONE)
  • Finish knitting FPK Slipper...  FOR ME!!! and assemble, felt, and wear!!!! (DONE)
  • Finish Cabled Blanket...  probably will still be on To Do List No. 1 of 2012!!!  (HAHAHAHA)
  • Leashes... I've got to assemble 6 new ones, felt them, photograph them, and list them...  I need to photograph them  better than these first ones... the picture doesn't do them any justice that I posted already... any suggestions?  Maya would not cooperate so I couldn't even get one in use!!!  (DONE)

TO DO List No. 2 of 2011

  • Finish Cabled Blanket...  probably will still be on To Do List No. 1 of 2012!!!
  • FPK Slippers for Deva, Kristin and MaryEllen
  • Leash for customer
  • Socks for Kristin

Hmmmm I did a lot more than I thought I had--- this is actually really motivating!

It has been so long

I really can't believe it has taken me so long to write!  I'm getting to the point where I have some orders for knitted things and can't seem to catch up!  And what's even worse is I keep buying new books and yarns-  I JUST CAN'T STOP!!! 

I finished Michael's socks.  He loves them and now I am even more addicted... I am almost finished with one sock I am knitting for my sister!

I also have 3 pairs of slippers to make for some friends who saw mine and LOVED them!  I already made a pair for my mother and she LOVES them!  I also bought about 20 buttons on a shopping spree at JoAnns...  A dangerous aisle, that button aisle...
My slippers came out okay-  I was paranoid about the back and my heel, so I think I sewed too much together.  I have made and felted 3 more pairs already; I think I am going to put the slipper "business" on hold for now... I'm getting stressed by all these unfinished works.

On another note, I've got a custom leash order which is exciting too!  I guess I kind of have to decide if I am knitting for myself or knitting as a saleswoman...  with a full time job teaching, it's really difficult and I certainly don't want to start dreading knitting...

Well- Happy Knitting...
