Currently

I have a few projects on the needles/hook. Unfortunately, they aren't of the interesting variety.

In the finished file...


In case you don't recognize it, it holds my ereader...


And the only reason I made it is because I want to update my pattern photos. Because they suck, and have sucked for a long time. Now I just need to figure out a good background and hopefully get some good shots of it.

The next thing on the needles is just a swatch at the moment...


The pattern is called Mermaid Mesh. It's for something for my in person selling booth, and when I have that finished, I'll show you. Hopefully, it'll turn out as I envision it.

And finally...


This is just a simple crocheted lattice thing. Which was made to do the same job as the Mermaid Mesh thing. I've changed my mind, and this might no longer be needed. We'll see.

I suppose I should pull out Halloween patterns. (I want to make myself an orange mask.) Now would be a good time to start Christmas knitting. But I'm just not feeling it.

So when I start panicking about not having enough time to finish something, you all can point me back to this post. Because that will be all my own doing.

  4. You do nice work. As for procrastinating, artists can only do what feels right. ~nods~ Be well!

  10. I'm not feeling anything remotely to do with Halloween or Christmas, so I can't blame you. It'll all come together in time!

    1. Every time I'm in the yarn store I look at the orange thread, and I resist buying it. Maybe eventually...

  12. Taking pictures of crafts is hard. The colors never come out good in pictures for me. I got this light box thing to use that was supposed to help, but I couldn't figure out how to place the lights and everything turned out dull and gray. ><

    1. I've seen how to make light boxes on Pinterest. Lighting is one of my huge issues. Stop by on Monday to help me pick out the best photos (or tell me to start over) :)
