Show us what you are working on at the moment, it can be something for sale, a present or something for yourself.  (I would suggest trying to keep your pictures about 900 pixels on the longest side so they don't take up too much room)

My work in progress is a BAMCAL on Ravelry and these are a couple of my favourite blocks so far, some are ten inch, some five inch and the big one is 22 inch so not sure yet how I am going to weave them all together, probably add a few more rounds to the big one.

I don't seem to have chosen an actual colour scheme yet either so may end up making multiple blankets 😃

What are you making?

I’m between any “selling” projects at the moment, so taking the opportunity to try out a new knitting stitch pattern I’ve been eyeing for a while. I’m liking it, and think it will be useful as a textured dish cloth.

Thanks Rachael, I had to go and look at your shop to see what chicken sweaters are and they are what they say.  In all the years I kept chickens I had not come across them, would have been useful as an egg catcher for a couple of hens that insisted on eating their eggs.  Your brooches look cute, I can imagine them on hats and all sorts of things.

That is an interesting stitch Rozelynn, I do not knit but it looks somewhat complicated, I have enough trouble controlling one hook, let alone two needles .  I can imagine it for a haloween'y type garment as well.

Hi Rozelyn.
I do knit and sold lots of sweaters but this stitch is very nice. I've never done it but it looks like a type of cable. It shows a lot of depth and texture.

Hi, Martique
What’s amazing about this stitch is that it is done by rows. No cabling involved. It really caught my eye to want to try out and I’m anxious to try it in different colors, especially a solid background with a variegated colored lattice front.

Christine: Gorgeous crocheted blocks!

Looks like the "yarners" are all busy here 😃

Other WIP

I am also working on a summer top for sale, but it is a somewhat repetitive stitch pattern and I am only one and a third way though the four sides, let alone the straps and edging, so I keep leaving it to pursue more interesting projects.

Has anyone ever bought sight unseen from ebay?  I did one of those 10Kg 100 balls offers but turned out to be 74 balls, much of which is usable but also included four balls of t-shirt yarn.  Yesterday I tried making a bag with it but it is much too heavy to take shopping so am going to have to frog it and rethink what I will use it for.  I have some ideas just to work out how to implement them now.

I came across a beautiful shawl pattern last night, will be going though my yarn stash later to see if I have enough of the Sirdar Hush yarn to make it with and once it is finished will then have to decide whether to keep or sell it.  I keep making things to sell and having to make a second one as I keep the first.

Plus of course, the housework, work and garden are a constant WIP

I haven't been able to take photos for a month due to a twisted ankle but plan to spend the weekend catching up. I have a lot of new yarn to list, alpaca, mohair, Plymouth Encore and some others, too. I also need to clean out my pattern notebooks.

Hi Christine.
I understand you feeling of falling in love with the work you do. Me, I fall in love with the stones I used to make the jewelry. Each is a unique part of the earth, never to come twice. But I bet that is what makes your knitted goods so special, because they are created and sent out to their new homes with affection.

Hi Lesley, hope your ankle recovers soon. 

It probably would not work for your knitted items but I have been using my laptop recently to light small items such as a crochet square I have been designing.  I put a sheet of white paper on the keyboard, tilt the screen forward and if necessary use more white paper to reflect the light and then use phone to take the photo.   The white is coming out a neutral grey but that is often okay.

~~

Hi Martique

Do you end up keeping many or keep them just for a while ?

~~

I think I should do some more painting again but this cold weather it is so much nicer to sit with what ever I am making draped over my lap

I am so so overloaded with beads!! So I am making lots of new earrings, affordable ones.
And plan on getting them listed here soon.

Christine, those squares are amazing!! That first one is so Bohemian (the colors and design)...which is a favorite style of mine.

The tooth soap sounds very interesting. Is there anything like that on the market?

ArtsyCrafteryStudio, unfortunately, we are not first to market, but we LOVE the alternative to traditional toothpaste - totally NATURAL!

I am still working on my BAMCAL quilt, as well as two different shawls - depends how tired I am which one I work on.  Plus started painting again digitally this time, which sounds easy but takes just as long, if not longer than physical paints but does not need all the clearing up afterwards.  This is my most recent painting, using digital pastels .  This is a low resolution image, much smaller than the printable version size.jumping horse72.jpg
