A Little More Freedom

Well I now have two more days off a week because I quit one of my jobs today. It was really a relief to quit because lately it has gotten so unpleasant to work there and there is just too much tension that is not being addressed that could easily be fixed. So now I am down to working three days a week in a job that I really like going to.

Spencer's Socks

These are socks that I made for my boss' baby who is a preemie and just came home yesterday for the first time and he was born 6 months ago. He has finally reached the size of a newborn. These socks actually go up to his knees since he is so small still.

Black Yarn Swap Package Arrived

I actually got my package from Erin last Wednesday but I have not been able to post my pictures until now.
Erin also made me some wonderful stitch markers with a Harry Potter theme to them as well as a tote bag with a Buffy quote that actually happens to be one of my favorites and she didn't know that when she made it. The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in the colorway Ravenscroft. I absolutely love the yarn and I was able to get my first Monkey sock done this past weekend.

I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted. Things have been insanely busy for me lately. I have to make 100 of my small drawstring bags by July 9 for a store grand opening, so that the first 100 people get a free bag which will be filled with other goodies. These sure are going to be expensive gifts for a store grand opening. I have less than three weeks to get all of these bags done and I only have 40 done so far. I know that I will get them done, but now I am getting tired of making those bags. I am going to have to come up with a new design to focus on for my Etsy page. I really hope that I will be able to come up with something that will be a good substitute.
