Life happens

Hedgehog Fibres Sock in Artifact

Once again I've been super quiet on the blog and a bit mum across social media. I wish I had exciting reasons for my silence, like secret projects and whatnot, but sadly, no, I don't. I can't even say that I've been knitting up a storm either as I really haven't been able to knit that much. I did manage to whip up a couple of small custom orders but otherwise, my knitting time has been a little sporadic. It's a good thing I'm not really gift-knitting this year! 

I have been sewing though! I've been filling custom requests for bags in fabrics that I've used in the past (and have limited quantities of), which is exciting as this will make room (literally) for some new fabrics and possibly new shop items! But all this is not what has been keeping me quiet, so what gives?

Life.

Yes, life happened. I won't go into the details but the gist: a career change (happy face!) and health related stuff (sad face). Exciting AND frustrating times! So many changes all at once and they just keep coming, it most likely won't calm down until after the holidays. Eep! But we're rolling with the punches and we're keeping on keeping on. I might be able to catch a break after the weekend (which I'm hoping will be filled with some much needed knitting time!!) and I'm excited at the idea of being able to do some more sewing. I'm so giddy at the thought! 

For now though, while my energy is currently at a so-called "normal" level, I'm trying to sneak in as many rows as I possibly can on my shawl WIP. A few weeks ago I cast on a Free Your Fade with a gorgeous gradient set by Zen Yarn Garden and I'm happy to report that I'm on my last colour! I'm also hoping to cast on a baby knit that will be gifted at Christmas, but first, I need to decide which pattern to knit up! Do you have any recommendations? Are you knitting gifts?

Ok, speaking of knitting, I have some free time before I have to go pick up the Kiddo. I better try to get some knitting in!


♥ Happy Wednesday!! ♥
