Yarn feast

I tell you, it's either feast or famine as far as yarn related sales go. For so long I've been sitting around doing other things instead of crocheting and out of the blue my husband says he got me a sale. A woman ordered a 'Fisherman sweater in pink'....alrighty then. After looking at many different patterns I decided on this one for a size 4 girl. The woman (who bought it for her grand daughter) loved it so much she wants one of her own. Phew, ok. (The sweater for the little girl is pictured)
Then he comes home and says he has an order for 3 penis pillows (he just thinks they're the funniest thing I've ever made) from another woman at work. Wow, ok. Then I get an order from my Etsy store. Then....catch my breath....I get a recurring order for beanies. I'm up to my neck in yarn activities right now......and I like it.
My daughter has been telling me for a while that I need to get back into crocheting because I loved it and because I could make money at it. I guess I should have listened to her.

Trying to get it back

It's been so long since I've sat down and crocheted something for the fun of it. The only thing I've done lately is the few orders I get from Etsy. You know how life is, it takes over sometimes and leaves you in the dust unless you keep up. So many things have changed in my life the last time I posted.
Last night my husband came home with 2 orders for me from people he works with. One was for 2 penis pillows and one was for a Fisherman's sweater for a child. He said "you have such a talent and you've been wasting it. You have to get back into it". That really surprised me. That he thought of things that way.... So, he's right. Time to get my blog going again and back into the crochet world....where I belong!
