Yes, I AM still alive.
Yes, I AM still knitting.
No, I DON'T have much time for anything else.
Alive for me these days means soldiering on and knitting means... well I'm more about doing that for money these days, mostly. I need income and what better way to get it than through something I love doing?
Here's who I've been working for these past few months....
Never heard of this label? Well neither had I until I replied to Stephanie's ad online for wanted knitters. Her label may be small now, but I have a feeling she's goin' places quickly (and hopefully VERY quickly because after all, if she sells - I pay my bills!)
If you have recently bought, or planning to buy a cable beanie (minus the pom-pom) from the range, there's a good chance that I made it with my own raw, bare hands.
Let me tell you though ; a bit of cursing, teeth grinding and a touch of tiredness will seep through the item and into your skin and body, unknowingly. I'm not saying that it's difficult work. It's actually quite easy BUT my hands aren't as strong as they used to be and I have to really be careful not to over strain them. Especially when I'm working on the cable stitch and / or ribbing - OUCH, OUCH and OUCH!
We are about to start a 'big wool' range consisting of more beanies, sweaters and cardigans. Thankfully the wool is very chunky and the items are knit with very large needles so they will cccc-hhhh-urn out quickly. That will be fun! :)
I'll keep you posted with the progress - promise.
