Even though it’s still September, it’s getting festive here, and this week’s crafts have mainly revolved around Christmas (or sparkles!)
I’m in the middle of completing orders for snowmen baubles, there are only a couple more to make now. They do look like a jolly little crew; it’ll almost be sad to separate them when they go off in pairs to their new homes. The bonus of making so many is that I have memorised the patterns!
I’ve also had orders for slippers-5 pairs of them! I’ve completed one pair, and have the yarn (and sparkly buttons) for the next pair. I need to put in a Wool Warehouse order for the yarn for the next three pairs, but I have enough to keep me busy for a while. I’ve shut my business order books temporarily so that I can complete these orders and make stock for a craft fair. (Not to mention the fact that I’m currently working a lot so crochet is mainly reserved for evenings now.)
My wrist is better after a bit of a rest so now I can at least crochet for a while. Injuring myself has made me more mindful of the need to take rest breaks and do stretching exercises to avoid doing any more damage. I also managed to make an existing shoulder injury worse by sitting in the same position for too long. Fortunately that has eased too, I just need to remember to go steady!
What have you been working on this week? Anything exciting? How are your festive makes coming on?
