Let me start by inserting a crummy apology for my absence here. =P Truth is, life just got in the way again! April was an absolutely INSANE month for me – 6 birthdays, 2 weddings! On top of that, my other half and I were trying to get his things packed up for a big move, AND I’ve been stuck in bed for the past week with a doozy of a cold. I’m thinking the huge number of chaotic activities finally took their toll!
The good thing about being stuck in bed, is that it doesn’t prevent you from creating pretty things with yarn.
After I finished this cross stitch sampler for my friend’s wedding present,
I started focussing on stocking up some of the items in the shop, along with some new items I have yet to add. I’ve also been slowly adding to my Christmas items, hoping to stock up for potential seasonal craft shows at the end of the year. When it all comes down to it, I never feel like I have enough of ANYTHING, and always wish my fingers would knit/crochet faster than they already do. I’m only human. I suppose I need to just be content with the progress I do make! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and all that.
My obsession lately has been these slipper flats –
I liked the first pair so much, that I kept them for myself. I think I must wear them everyday! Now I’ve been adding to the inventory with different colour combinations, and sizes. As much as I want to add these in the shop (and will eventually), I’ve become determined to have a bunch of pairs for craft shows, so photographing them has been put on the back-burner for now.
Today, I made a pair of Mary Jane socks to add to the shop:
I had these listed last year, but never got around to restocking them once they were sold out. FINALLY getting around to changing that! In fact, they will be back in the shop tomorrow, so stay tuned!
Lastly, amongst this bit of a ramble, I just wanted to say thank you again. Thank you for reading this; for shopping at my little online store; for having patience with me as I try to balance a fairly unpredictable life with a small business. Now that life has quieted down a bit, I’m planning on putting a lot more energy into Knitting by Kali.
