Apparently 12 hour work days AT LEAST 6 days a week (and I try to enforce one day off a week because I've been through Grad School, I know how easy it is to burn out) and the only knitting time you take is in sacrifice of things like "laundry" and "making a real meal". And when you find time to knit? It'll probably be consumed by sample/commission/repair work - forget about your own projects.
|Short Notice baby sweater by Taiga Hillard Designs, knit using Diamond Luxury Simpatico yarn. LOVE how this turned out - the yarn was pretty and the sweater knits up in no-time flat. Seriously, if you need a baby gift on short notice, this is a good choice in pattern!|
|Aspyn Hat by Melissa Schaschwary, knit out of ...well you can see. Fun knit, though those massive cables looked like garbage for the first few repeats. The yarn is SO SOFT AND SO TWEEDY, I'm in love. Honkin' big pompom (the photo doesn't do it justice) was added to help pull down the hat so it's more slouch and less cone-head. Those big cables be stiff! Also, make sure you use MUCH smaller needles for the brim, because I made a mistake and used 4.5 mm instead of 4.0 mm, and it wasn't enough - WASN'T ENOUGH.|
I also wanna go for a run, but between a few ginormous orders at the shop and evening events every day this week, that's totally not happening.
Just please don't open another one in Whitehorse - I think we have all the yarn shops we can handle with the two of us. :)
