Wow, this is novel.

After tomorrow, I will be unemployed.  I should perhaps be afraid, but I’m actually relieved.

I will have time to:

clean my house, THOROUGHLY, and

warp up my loom with projects that have been clinking around in my head for well over a year and no time to actually DO, and

spin up all the fleece and roving that has been collecting moths for the last more-than-year,

and put together kits of patterns/hand spun hand dyed yarn to sell, and

get my garden started with seeds inside and the cold frame outside, and

get a few more chickens to sell eggs or for meat,

and maybe I’ll get a job tending bar.

Much less stressful than what I have been doing, for sure.

Like I said, I should be terrified, but I’m feeling pretty good.

Shameless self promotion

This is for sale.  It is hand spun from 80% merino wool and 20% silk.  As soon as I saw the roving I knew it wanted to become this scarf.  It is approximately 53″ long by 7″ wide.  Price is $70 plus $6 shipping, you can go to my Etsy shop,  Sedona Earth Knits if you would like to purchase this scarf.  The inspiration for this scarf comes from my favorite camping spot; the colors in the scarf echo the colors of the creek bottom, in the sycamore and juniper forest on a beautiful spring day:

Thank you for looking, back to your regularly scheduled programming 🙂

I’ll be posting items for sale occasionally; I am working on developing a business of my hand crafted items.  Like the chickens, I don’t expect to get rich from it, but I expect that my hobby will eventually pay for itself, and I will have the satisfaction of knowing my creations are out in the world with people who will appreciate them.
