What are y’all up to this week? Last week I did not have a good or productive week at all… this week things are looking better!
In ceramics, I’m getting ready to start painting the March mug, the unicorn… I’m handbuilding some test pieces for the next HaldeCrate… Working on some things for a show I’m doing the first weekend of March (that will also be a new line in the shop after that)…
In soap, I think I’ve gotten everything restocked, now, except for the sample sets. I need to make some more of those…
In yarn, I really need to carve out time to fix the clustercuss that is my spinning fiber section. I have some undyed fiber, but unfortunately the company I buy from stopped making the pencil roving, so it’s a bit different than half of what’s up on the website right now. I keep waffling between “dye everything all over again in the new” vs “dye restocks and replace as necessary” vs “evaluate how well it all sells and decide if it’s something I just want to restock once a year in September for Fiber-In”.
In knitting, I’m working on a pair of socks in the “Whooooooo’s Ready for the End of Winter” colorway, I’m working on a poncho (back burner because I bought a woolen poncho at the Medieval fair the other weekend and it’s meeting all my poncho needs), and I just dyed some testers of the next Crate colorway (TBA soon) and I’m thinking of working up a quick pair of socks or fingerless gloves in that.
In Patreon, things are going well! Chapter Six went up a couple of weeks ago, and regular Patron blog posts are all on track. I’m going over Chapter Seven now, and it’ll go up the first Sunday of March.
That’s about it for me this week. As always, I’m sure there are other things that I just forgot to mention (I’ve been doing this blog post for so long you would THINK that I’d take notes throughout the week for things to mention… yes, you would think that, wouldn’t you?!). How about y’all? What are you working on? How’s your week going?
