Work-in-Progress Wednesday (and Top 5 Missed WIP’s)

HI! It’s me. I’m stilllll here. You know, the stay-at-home mama/ etsy-preneur and sometimes-blogger? Yeah, that’s me. Sometimes-blogger. Since I pretty much ran out of my small stock of items in my Etsy shop, and constantly had custom order requests, my fingers were pretty tied up in string, hooks and needles for a few months. Aaand somehow I fit in cooking dinner, grocery shopping, church, two-year-old birthday party planning,

Last Minute Quick Knit! Hudson Bay Mitts – FREE PATTERN!

So…I’m sorry about the lack of posting, but HEY!

I’ve been sooooo busy, I’m sure you can understand….and it’s also hard to type a blog post when your hands are preoccupied with Etsy orders! Blogging takes a lot of time, and as my friend said, “it’s a total time-suck!”. Right. I simply have too many interests, but I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon.

And now, for a peace offering, ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’d like to offer this FREE knitting pattern in case you need a last minute idea! These cozy gloves knit up so quickly!! A determined knitter could knit these in an hour. Seriously.

The colors of the iconic Hudson Bay stripes remind me of Lifesavers candy and Christmas Lights ๐Ÿ™‚

W-I-P Wednesday: Hudson Bay With a Side of Chevrons + Free Pattern?!

I am usually so busy making made-to-order items for my Etsy shop, that I don’t have a lot of time to design new items- which is my favorite thing to do! So, during the busy sales/shopping season, I can get kind of bogged down from making the same item over and over…and…over…again.

Lion Brand’s Thick & Quick Yarn to the rescue! I whipped these babies up in no time, and have a cute new item to list in the Etsy shop today! YAY!

Free Knitting Pattern | Jammin’ Fingerless Mittens

I originally made these for a friend who wanted to show off her Jamberry nails while still keeping her hands warm! Hence, the name. She gave me the cutest musical Jams in exchange! Perfect for a music nerd, like me.

Work-In-Progress Wednesday: Take A Guess!

I would like to start doing little Mini-Posts/ Micro-blogging on Wednesdays ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d like to publish longer posts once a week, but keep you interested with little tidbits in between the big posts, thus, we now have Work-In-Progress Wednesday! I would like to share with you some of the projects or shop orders that I’m working on, and if you’re a creative of some kind, feel free to share what you’re working on, as well!

So, on to my current work-in-progress…well, I should say WORKS-in-progress…but knitters never reveal how many projects they haven’t finished…right?! Well, maybe they do, but I really don’t feel like digging them all out right now, for fear of a huge mess and a small amount of shame! HA!
