What’s on my needles? Not a lot lately, lol. On second thought, let me rephrase. I have several projects started; one sock with no mate, 1 summer top, 2 winter tops (one of which will probably be frogged), a hitchhiker, another scarf, a temperature blanket, a Find Your Fade (which may just fade completely away). All these projects are sitting in a recently reorganized knitting niche.
But not all my needles are sitting idol,..
Recently I talked about these cute floppy bunnies I have been making. Yes, this is where my needles have been clicking away this whole summer. I have been very busy knitting these floppy bunnies. Not sure how many I have made, but it is a lot.
So after many late nights, early mornings and totally sleepless nights, I am close to the finish line. I have written and rewritten the pattern at least a dozen times,
and this is the final result!
Even before my final version, I managed to sell a few. That has been very encouraging! The owner of my LYS has agreed to sell some of the bunnies on consignment and will work with me to sell the pattern. Wow!
Okay, speaking of pattern, I had no idea how much work is involved in creating a pattern that is easy to read, makes sense to others and hopefully spark the interest of the public. I think I am very close to a printable version! My BKB (best knitting buddy) is helping me proof the pattern. Not only is she helping proof, but she has these fabulous ideas for design and layout that will create a knockout pattern.
Once ERIN’s BUNNY is launched, I hope to create a series of floppies called ERIN’s FLOPPIES. In fact, there is a new one coming soon. I named the series after my daughter, Erin. Erin has special needs and I spoke about her in a previous blog called, ERIN’s FLOPPIES.
Making these bunnies have made me think about launching a small shop. I could sell some of my stitch markers, . .
Did I mention that I used to make homemade lotions and lip balms? !
Huh! What should I call a shop of this nature? I do like greyhounds. How can I fit my love of greyhounds into a small craft shop.
STAY TUNED, and happy blogging, knitting and just enjoying what is left of summer.
