Emerald’s post reminded me that it’s time to get back into my knitting/crocheting projects (thanks, Em!). You see, I have a serious addiction. An addiction to buying yarn. Yeah. It’s bad. Real bad. I cannot pass up a funky/colorful/fun skein of yarn. Ever. This addiction results in baskets and boxes full of yarn:
And I just can’t knit/crochet fast enough to use it all. After all, how many scarves can you give one person as gifts? And I tried the crocheted throw/afghan route…I managed to make one for my sister, one for my gram and one for my mother and then I was burned out. The throws/afghans are just too time consuming and I get bored crocheting the same pattern over and over for umpteen rows.
I got on a roll last year and hammered out several scarves that I was able to sell at my cafe. Now that I don’t have the cafe any longer I don’t have an outlet for sales other than Etsy.com and I’m thinking EVERYONE and their mother is selling scarves on that site. I’ll give it a whirl and see how it goes, it can’t hurt to try.
And, honestly, I pretty much have an addiction to crafting as a whole. Once I get an idea in my head there is NO stopping me. There is always the issue of me wanting to have just ONE day where I don’t have my hands into some crafty venture. But, oh no. It just doesn’t happen. This week I’m furiously grinding out coasters and magnets to sell on my website and at a local gallery. Every inch of flat space in and outside my house is covered with coasters and they must remain so to dry…for at least 5 days:
See 2LD craft. See 2LD lose her mind. Run 2LD, run!
