Roundup of Week 28: What We Crafted From July 11-17
- Jessica finished the last side of her dice bag — stay tuned for whether it ends up getting redone in a new yarn! ;) She also finished most of the fluffy Natalie scarf, cast on a sweater for her dad, did a ridiculous number of gauge swatches that inspired her to alter the pattern, made a chicken and noodle casserole, and posted a story about Bastille Day on her blog.
Check-in for Week 29: What Have You Done Lately? (July 18-24)
As for me, I wrote every day, even when I felt like a sucky writer, and spent almost all of my Tour de Fleece spinning time finishing the endless bobbin of Rubies and Sapphires Merino. Sunday, I took some photos of Phat Fiber batts, wrote descs, and listed them in the Etsy shop and spun the endless Merino. Monday, I created a sales tax tracker/calculator spreadsheet, paid my sales tax literally 30 seconds before the online-submission deadline (so piratical it almost deserves to be called creative? ;)) and spun some more of the Merino. Tuesday, I reorganized my Amazon.com wish lists so that now I have eleven or so (ha, ha!), spent time pondering yarn choice and then ordering yarn for a test knit, edited a bunch of tags on my Etsy items, updated my Etsy profile, and (guess!) spun some more Merino. Wednesday, I wrote a writing critique for the Critters group, but did not spin any of the endless Merino because it was a TDF rest day. Thursday, I wrote a blog post draft but didn't post it because it severely needs editing, spun yet more of the endless Merino, and e-mailed a friend about a costume collaboration idea for Dragon*Con ... cackle. Friday, the test knit yarn got here, and I tidied up the shipping materials area (which required some creative box-stacking ;)) and FINALLY finished spinning the endless Merino! At least, the singles ... Saturday, I started spinning the second purple Gypsy batt and made brownie cookies.
