Hey everyone! Things have been crazy— I even missed the previous week’s round-up, so I’ll do both now!
The week of Thanksgiving, I got through Cubone (with bone prop), Poochyena (new design), Eevee, and a custom German Shepherd (new design) from my queue.
I finished up this Chicken purse for my sister’s birthday, which was on Dec 1. Ultimately the project failed as the purse stretched like crazy and isn’t really useable anymore! So disappointed!
On Thanksgiving Day, I worked on this Broomstick Scarf during cooking downtimes. (P.S. I made a really rockin’ Thanksgiving spread if I may say so myself). I just need to weave in the ends on it. I originally made this for myself, but decided I don’t love the colors as much as I thought I would (this seems to be a trend in my personal projects). It’ll probably go up for sale in my shop eventually; feel free to let me know if you’re interested.
AND, this week, I got through an impressive 9.5 items in my queue, including 3 new designs*: Stitch* (from Lilo and Stitch), Vaporeon, Umbreon, Flareon, Ivysaur*, Venusaur*, Bulbasaur, Diglett*, and Sylveon. (I’m more than halfway through Luxray as well).
I taught my crochet class on Wednesday of this week, demonstrating front post and back post double crochet. Not much to report on that front!
And over the weekend I put a little bit of work into my Rhino (personal project) in an extended Disney movie marathon. I’m really enjoying how the color-changes play out in this yarn! Again, the pattern is available for purchase from HeidiBears on Ravelry.
Perhaps needless to say, I am in the Christmas crunch. I’m doing my best to get as much of the summer backlog finished before I leave for vacation Dec 20-Dec 29, but realistically there will still be a small amount left when I return. I appreciate everyone’s patience with me; I truly am working as much and as quickly as my hands allow.
My Etsy shop will close while I am out of town— so if you are needing patterns or some of the limited stock of in-hand items, please make your purchases before Dec 19. You can also purchase patterns through my Ravelry shop, which will remain open.
I do have slots for custom/made-to-order items open; just send me a note via Etsy if you are interested. Production time is 8-12 weeks (and probably will remain that high indefinitely), so please take that into account when ordering.
Back to the salt mines! Take care everyone!
