The cat butts have been turned into ornaments, been photographed, edited, and finally listed. Whew. I always forget what a process it is to make new items for the shop… it’s definitely more than just making. It’s also totally worth
Today’s shop update is a quickie. I have a few hanks of lovely DK yarn from my Monster Spawn dye sessions. The smaller hanks are single sections of Cheviot, while the larger hank is what happens when you take two of those sections and spin them.
I want to talk briefly about how happy this week’s shop update has made me. It figured out a little issue I’d been having, forces me off of my butt (crocheting gets me on my butt, so a balance is good), and allows this quickie attention span of mine to shut it. I worked with wool and Cheviot fibers this week. I’m feeling really amazing with the little rhythm I’ve fallen into.
It’s Friday again, and for the 3rd week in a row I have brand new items for the shop. I think this is a personal record. Go me for sticking with this new schedule AND being productive with it. I can’t tell you how hard it is for me to not just blow things off. That’s not allowed to happen anymore.
Man, these things sold great at this fall’s past Hudson Valley Hullabaloo. They’re relatively quick to make, and they really are the most useful thing I make. They help you not lose your chapstick, and they are Monster Eyeball Chapstick Holder Keychains… it’s a wonderful thing.
Shop update today! It’s more than last week, so I guess I’m making progress.
I had expected there to be balloons. And confetti. *Looks around* Yeah, nothing. This is theoretically the official “launch” of Roarsome Yarn. I imagined it to be bigger and maybe with a lion dancing around on top of a giant ball somewhere. THAT would be an impressive launch. I’d probably get eaten though, and that would be the beginning and untimely end of Roarsome Yarn.
There is a monster shop update coming today! I have these 4 pieces made and ready to find their new homes. They are creations from my past few crochet patterns. The shop update goes live at 4 pm (EST) today (February 9, 2015). They will be waiting for you over at my Etsy Shop.
Today is the day of the 1st holiday show that Knot By Gran’ma is participating in. There are new monsters and some new ornaments too. Come on down and say hello! The new monsters that were added to the shop over this past week, will be making their debut there too. You can see the monsters in the shop if you’re not local or can’t make the show!
