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.
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.
