Well, probably a little like this:
After nearly a year of hardcore stash busting, I sprung for some new yarn a few weeks back. It arrived early last week and I've been busy winding up skeins and busting out some new headbands for the Etsy shop. Nothing like a whole new batch of beautiful yarn to get your imagination churning. I feel so fortunate that Etsy sales picked up in the last few weeks, meaning that my new yarn was paid for completely with Etsy funds. Bam!
Uh-oh, I have a feeling that Etsy is just going to be fuel to the fire that is my fiber obsession . . . .
Here's what's been on my needles lately:
A bloggy friend requested a "cable-y" scarf knit out of some alpaca yarn she'd been gifted by a friend who raises alpacas. I was more than happy to oblige. This is what we came up with:
drop me a line about what you have in mind and I'm sure we can work something out. Just, for the love of all things holy, if you're thinking of a custom item to give as a holiday present, let's start that process ASAP, eh? That way I don't have to spend Christmas Eve knitting my fingers to the bone while Elf loops endlessly in the background, dontcha know?
It seems only right to be settling in with a new batch of yarn, while the leaves start to turn outside and overnight temperatures dip lower and lower.
How are you settling in for autumn?
