WIP Wednesday 3/23
I have some swap things in the works. No pictures to show for it, though. One project can't get started until I get the pattern and the other just hasn't gotten the attention it deserves.
What have I been working on you ask? Cases. And cases and cases. For whatever reason, my Etsy shop is on fire with requests. (That's not a bad thing, but I'm a one-woman-show who only moves so quickly!) I took down the custom case listing for the time being so I could catch up on orders.
I finished a case last week but the customer isn't home so it won't be mailed until I hear from her that she's back. I'll finish another tonight.
Needless to say, it keeps me busy. So for the time being, the extra time on my lunch hour, and any time before little man goes to sleep can be allocated to knitting. Then, once Squishy is in bed, I move down to my "sewing corner" until it's time to wrap-up for the night.
Awhile back someone asked if I'd be willing to sell my pattern for the needle cases. And every time I think of it, I have to smile because I don't work from patterns for these cases. Yes, I have measurements and sketches, but at this point, I've done it so many times I hardly even think about it anymore. And to write it out in a pattern is just too much work. If it's something I've come up with myself, I really prefer to work without the constraints of a pattern. :) That way any mistakes are really just turned into creative solutions!
So, what's on your needles, hook or sewing table this week?
