My crafting, baking and photography time have taken a big hit as I've recently gone back to work on a temporary contract. I'm trying to balance my new responsibilities with those that remain at home, plus still work in some fun things here and there.
I did manage to finish my donation for Craft Hope's Red Scarf project and got it in the mail this week ahead of the deadline. I was really pleased with how it turned out, given the simplicity of the knit. I used two skeins of Berroco Peruvia Quick for the scarf, casting on 20 stitches and just using a simple moss stitch. It caught my dad's eye this weekend when they were here for a visit, and now I plan to make one in blue for him.
My other recent endeavor was creating Valentine postcards using a couple of images I shot last year. The card you see on the scarf is one of them. Thanks to my friend, Jan, who asked if I'd print Valentine cards for her, I actually got my act together and made it happen this year! Maybe next year I'll plan ahead enough to consider selling some online as well. Starting an online shop is an idea I keep toying with, but haven't been sure about implementing. Perhaps that's a goal for the second half of 2010...what do you think?
