I had a really productive weekend knitting. I suppose that’s what a stormy three days spent mostly indoors will do. I’ve been knitting softies for my kids for many years now. We have quite a collection of dogs and bunnies. But I’ve always wanted to create my own pattern in the hopes of selling them in my Etsy store or if I really get my act together, writing up the patterns for selling. So I’ve been busy knitting up various body parts, perfecting how many increases I need, and finding the perfect placement for ears. Overall it’s been an enjoyable experience and pretty rewarding when you see a sweet face staring at you when finished. The ultimate compliment is that both kids are in line, waiting patiently for me to create one for each of them.
I’ve also made a bunch on progress on D’s sweater. I have the body knit up to the underarm and maybe a quarter of a sleeve finished. I have to say knitting in worsted and for a kid makes for a speedy, satisfying project.
What are you crafting this week? I’ve linked up with Nicole’s Keep Calm Craft On.
