FO!! Holy moly!

10 Sep

Okay I hope you are ready for a good one here folks. I hope you’re sitting down for this… I completely finished two baby sweaters (that were really done in feb or march)!!. My coworker, who is letting me sell my “Hknits” knitted items under her vendor company at my office at the hospital, asked to see some of work via pics and I said I could bring in the purple striped baby sweater for her to see and feel. ::I’m really jazzed here at this point – insert big re-donk-ulous smile here::

So. I sewed on buttons in both, after a trip to Walmart at 9pm because I realized after I sewed one purple button on with white thread that it just wouldn’t work out after all. Ha!! So, after shopping like a poor college student, buying on one spool of thread, 2 ramen noodles and three packets of salmon, I finished the buttons. I was also able to weave in the ends on both sweaters and sewed in my “iow to wash label” on the nice purple striped sweater. (Pics below including my work table at the time ::sigh::)

Before all if this finishing that was going on, I had to go through every months photo album that was on my lap top so I could take my iPad in to work tomorrow to show Karen my previous work in knitting. (Pic below)

And after that, i had to FIND those two bay sweaters (omg lol). So I cleaned out my knitting bag aka, catch-all-things-that-have-to-do-with-knitting bag. (See pic for the hot mess).

Quick cliff notes: I decided to take my yarn I really won’t be using again and donate it to the ladies at the hospital who would want to knit or Crochet the babies hats and such. So that’s the pic with the bags of yarn. Also, I added to the purple striped sweater a little CARE KIT (I know, I know) with extra yarn that was used on in the sweater and two extra purple buttons and nearly tucked it in a little Baggie. I hope to add those little touches to my knitted Garments for sale at the office. I have also included a pic of the photo stream album I created of my knitted work over the last two years (some things I can’t find pics of unfortunately). I also wet blocked the two sweaters to get a better shape in them. :). I’m so good tonight.

Take care











Sweaters! Sweaters everywhere!

9 Sep

I am getting my baby sweaters into the hospital! This is such a big opportunity for me and growing my future business! Cra-zy. I guess this means i need to be knitting more…😝 I have one sweater done that I could sell but I think the demand of the knitting a sweater business is going to be hard to keep up with at first. Then I’m sure ill get a inkling of what the demand will be and I’ll adjust. Happy times

And the boyfriend sweater is, well…. Still going. It’s stockinette in the round so not much is really going on.

And the baby sweater is still a wip. Still need to cast in for the arms, yes both.

Very excited to see our knitting group article in the paper this Wednesday!!

Life has not been easy lately. This are getting thrown at me left and right, I don’t know what up or down is anymore. Knitting is keeping it together for me now. I just sit and docs in this one thing, one row, one stitch at a time. The sweater will keep growing as will my life 🙂 it all comes together at the end.
