...colorwork

Okay. Work is maybe a bit over the top ;P but but, I did use a little time playing around with embroidering thread and color combos. FYI macro is my friend^^

Colors make me happy and I need that today. So I'm gonna share it with you :)

... new years reoslutions

Yes. I have four or so I think. I'm not much into resolutions at all. But I think I have a few that actually is possible for me to keep.

1. Using materials from my stash or rather: make some of the projects I have planned and have materials for. I already started^^ The second I started a giant scarf/throw that I have had yarn for, for ages. Not that I'm gonna use it but I really want to try out the pattern. This yarn works wonders for it. It's gonna be 150 cm long and I'm soon to be half way^^
Also I have a couple of pieces of jersey I need to make into a couple of summer dresses for myself. Oh and I have fabric for an adorable spring/summer jacket! I need to make that as well. I'd also like to make Oliver a couple of things. I have fabric for some compfy pants he needs. They'll probably be part of his birthday present or something. Also I have some really wonderful 100% yarn to make into a cowl for him.

2. I want to start blogging about what I do of crafty stuff. I've come to see that I actually get a ton done even though I never feel like it. So hopefully it will help me see it.

3. Knit a sweater/blouse for my self. I've only ever done that once and I've been knitting for 17 years precisely on Wednesday. I already have

4. Learn new technique. I'm already on my way to completing resolution 3 and 4. I have found an adorable sweater pattern that involves colorknit. It's rather amazing that I haven't gotten around to learn colorknit before now, but it has scared me quite a bit as I tried when I was twelve and failed miserably. I have of course started practicing before the test of the sweater with a pair of Totoro Mitts^^

Etsy?

Yes, as the title says..or should I say asks.. I'm pondering making an etsy shop. Though I can't seem to make up my mind. I don't know if I should or not.
I feel soo much like a rooky at this. It feels so strange actually thinking about selling things I make. My biggest problems is pricing and such. Selling my self n stuff. Oh God! My heart starts racing just from the thought of it.

Should, should not?

Christmas fair...

So this year I actually participated in my schools Christmas fair. Which to me is actually a really big thing. Despite the time it takes to get all of your stuff done the most difficult thing was more the daunting thought of having to sit and sell your stuff.

I sold knitted scarfs, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and nisser. Here a couple of pictures of my stand and goods:


Necklace scarfs. Hand knitted string of ca. 10 meters put together into one warm beautiful necklace


The three-in-one scarf. Three piece scarf with multiple possibilities. Two pieces of 50 cm and one of 90 cm. Together making a long regular scarf.

...the worlds first ever popcorns!


Yup! I'm telling you I made my first (successful) batch of popcorn ever!

I can do a lot of strange and silly things but there is a few things I just can't do if my life depended on it. Popcorn being one of them.

BUT! I made my first and almost perfect batch ^^ I had to look at them the hole time but there was only two un-popped corns in the entire bowl :D I liek! Oh and the tast of the fruits was soo tasty.
