What are you working on this week? I’m working on catching up on sleep, and also taking stock for Big Bang Bazaar, going over what I need to make, and what I also need to work on for restocking the online shop.
In ceramics, Monday I took out everything that didn’t sell at GLAM and sorted through it with an eye on what to bring for Big Bang Bazaar. It turns out that even though I sold most of what I brought to GLAM, since I’m only doing a table at BBB and not a booth, I kind of actually have enough and don’t need to make anything new. Oh, I *could* make some new things, just to have them and switch out other things for them, but I don’t *need* to. So instead I’m going to focus my ceramic-making energy this week on restocks for the shops, some new things, and on Christmas presents for my friends and family. I’ve also got some yarn bowl restocks in the shop, that I’ll mention during the week (or you can just go to the shop and look under “gifts for yarn lovers”).
In soap, I have a small soap restock this week, and I might have another one if I can get the soap I made the other week wrapped (remember when I made soap for GLAM?). It was never dry enough to wrap it, but hopefully that’ll happen this week. I’ll pull most of it aside to bring to Big Bang Bazaar with me, but I’ll put the rest in the shop (and will post when I do).
In yarn, I have a small restock of Andre, yarn I wound last week right before GLAM. I’ll have a little Tiptree and a little Yolen as soon as I can finish getting that wound, as well. I also decided not to check in the Andre and the Tepper from GLAM, but to keep it pulled out for Big Bang Bazaar, to save myself a little time next week. If you’re looking for something in those two bases and don’t see it online, shoot me an email. (The Joy and Lynn that did not sell at GLAM has been checked in.). While I will check that Andre and Tepper back in after Big Bang Bazaar, I won’t be dyeing yarn again until the first two weeks of January – as the first week will be all about yarn club, I won’t be updating the shop with more yarn until probably the end of the second week/beginning of the third week of January.
In everything else… is there anything else? I feel like I don’t have much of a life outside of work in December! I’m knitting a couple of things NOT with my yarn, there’s something! I have a pair of socks on the needles with some Lorna’s Laces, and some with End of the Row yarns (and I’m obsessed with the pattern!). This weekend I have two different holiday parties to go to, and it’s almost time for me to start making Chex Mix. Mmmmmmm. Ok, that’s all I can think of for now. What about y’all? What are you working on this week? Anyone in an almost-last–minute frenzy of Making?
