A little news...

No, I'm not pregnant again.  lol  After thinking about how much I love knitting and how much I really want to make a little money to ease things for this coming Christmas, I plan on opening my Etsy shop again!  I'm actually really excited about it!  It's been such a long time but I think I'm ready.  I may be changing directions with it but hopefully I'll keep all of my hearts on my shop and appeal to some new people.  I've been a little down about how Etsy seems to be full of professional Etsy sellers anymore but I guess if they fall under the category, then what can you do.  They've stopped featuring smaller shops and plaster the front page with things you'd find in Sears.  Well, if you could buy handmade things at Sears.  lol  I'm not bitter. 

Anyway, I don't know when I'm going to open it back up but keep an eye out for me.  I need to build up my yarn stash (hahahahhahahaha, sorry, Hubs!) and practice just a little more.  lol  I may be a newbie knitter but I will not sell junk.  :D

So,  I am waiting on a couple of knitting needles in the mail before I can finish my latest set of woolies for the baby.  I'm doing my winter knitting.  I'm kind of really super thrilled that I can say that.  I've seen a lot of other woolie knitters say they were doing their winter knitting and I was always jealous.  HA! 

These are going to be wool longies made with this pattern and 100 Pure Wool in 'forest of pines'.  I'm not sure if they still have this colorway but it's darn pretty if you ask me!

The butt

So that's what I have so far.  I'm trying very hard to get the gusset right but I'm having a little trouble with these to be honest.  I'll get it, though.  Don't worry.  :D

Ooh exciting! Are you going to sell soakers? I've been feeling the call back to etsy too (maybe because I am finally finishing all the things I wanted to knit for myself and girls lol). I have to do it differently this time we'll see

Yeah, definitely soakers and you REALLY need to open your shop back up! I loved seeing what you were making and you sold like crazy! Let me know when you open yours back up!!! XOXO
