The collective did not get me. I finished off the ten pairs of mittens and they are in the possession of the US Postal Service. They don’t have very far to travel – they are staying in the state.
The good news again is those last six mittens came off of one skein of yarn. Which means, I have a nice sized skein of dark gray yarn that I can do something with.
I also got a photo from Nic wearing her hat. I would show it to you but that girl does not have a way with selfies. I told her she had two balls of yarn left and she said: You can just have it. This is a girl who knows how to keep her name in the will.
I decided I wasn’t going to do any order knitting today. The next order is not due out until the 26th and I wanted to take a pressure breather from the orders. I will resume again tomorrow – or the day after. Don’t worry, I am not going to let it go. I want to have a boat load of orders by the end of the month so I need to get back into a rhythm – I want to feel pressed not pressured. I will start on them so I don’t get myself behind and that can happen in a hurry.
In other news, I now know how many face scrubbies I can make with one skein of the skein: 14. So a super pack would be 14 scrubbies for $12. That is good to know and I can price a 6 pack accordingly. I know you were anxious to know as well.
I have also given up on the bulky drop stitch poncho. It just isn’t sizing the right way for me. So the ones that I’ve done will be frogged and I will make something else from the bulky yarn. I am thinking drop stitch cowls which can be one size for all.
I did it again. I thought I posted this only to come back and find it still here. I must be losing my mind. Which might be scary for me but really scary for the person that finds it.
