After many consecutive days of busy, busy, busy-ness, my divider supply inventory is depleted. With all of the more than competent and amazing graphic designers on Etsy, I'd like to say to all of my customers that I am so grateful that they chose Hisglory.etsy.com!
I have gone from sending out one to two packages every couple of days to actually using the bin from the Post Office.
Due to the inability to make dividers, I have closed my shop for a few days. I awakened yesterday morning asking myself what, oh, what should I do? Answers to dilemmas such as this should not be given too hastily. Should I clean, should I read, should I slumber the day away, hmmmm?
After much deliberating (not really) I cast on a pair of fun child size socks. I purchased this yarn probably 4 years ago with the intention to make socks for myself. What was I thinking? As much as I love color, these are a little too playful for me.
I am using Online Supersocke 100 Fun Color. I cast on 44 stitches, which should work for a 3-4 year old. The entire sock is knit in a 3 X 1 rib, with the addition of 3 rows of loops. I found instructions for the loops here: http://www.crazyauntpurl.com/archives/2005/12/loopy_is_the_ne.php. I have purchased a couple of pair of Regia's clear boots and the socks will be sold as a nice accessory for them. I will see how they move in my Etsy shop as well as my physical store over at The Market in OKC.
Well, I have only a couple of carefree knitting days left, I will reopen my shop Thursday morning or afternoon. More socks to come! BTW I have been making baby booties and hats...just haven't shown them yet.
Have a terrific Tuesday!!
