I’ve been brainstorming lately. A lot. Since I’m out of work and have some time on my hands I’ve been trying to think of creative items I could make to possibly earn some coins while I look for a day job…
Here’s what I have so far:
Looks pretty good doesn’t it. Should rack in TONS of dough. >sigh<
My brain just isn’t spitting anything good out. A dear friend wants to go into business together. She see’s that awesome hand dyed sock yarn pie…and wants us to cut a piece for ourselves. I am willing to give this a shot. I love to dye, I love sock yarn… What could go wrong, other than it doesn’t sell at all and she ends up with a TON of sock yarn dyed by me (she’s fronting the money, so it’d go to her if it didn’t pan out.) >wink<
But other than that… I’m running dry.
I tried knitting wire…thought I could make knitted earrings. That was about as much fun as cramps. I tried the crocheted jewlery thing…and this might work, I just gotta fine that “one thing” that really does “it”… (oh, shut up, you know what I mean.) >grin< I have other ideas that I’m running around with…but nothing concrete.
The February Lady sweater is coming along well, if mind-numbingly. I HATE GARTER STITCH. It rots my brain. I *KNEW* I should have done the garter stitch top section in seed stitch, but NOOOOO, I wanted to knit the pattern as is. AS IS?!?!?!?! I’m a dumb-ass. I know I hate garter stitch… I should have went with my guts. It looks okay…but I would have liked seed stitch better, but there is NO WAY I am ripping it out. I’m almost (like 2”) away from starting the lace section.
I have 874 yards of candy apple red fingering weight… Any ideas of what I could do with it??? Please don’t say socks. : ) I want something creative and intricate. Give me your best shot!!!
