It was beautiful and snowy out this New Year’s Day so I took everyone outside and the kids went sledding and sliding on the icy toboggan hill near our home while I had my husband took hat photos for my Etsy listings. I’ve been meaning to get a bunch of hats listed since my holiday markets were over several weeks ago, but we just hadn’t gotten around to it yet. I even managed to get a few shots of a male model in my hats! Here’s a wee sampling:
I also got a couple more custom orders finished, including these his and hers (below). Tell me, do you recognize the symbol on his toque? You’ll surely be showing your age if you do!
And this bucket hat has been delivered to a very happy customer, who rang me to tell me that she loved it, but it didn’t go with her scarf, and she was looking for some extra yarn. Unfortunately, a couple of years ago I bought a big lot of Louet Riverstone when they discontinued the line so I could not supply her with it since I used the very last of it on her hat. To the last stitch. It was close, I tell you!
On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I took a day off from knitting for others and managed to knit myself a new pair of knitting mittens with some lovely alpaca:
In other exciting news, I’m signed up for this month’s Leslieville Flea which takes place on January 19 (10am-5pm) in the historic Distillery District! It’s in the Fermenting Cellar at 28 Distillery Lane. For more information, please see http://leslievilleflea.com
All the best to you and yours in 2014!
