Last year I made ghost pops which are just fabric covered Tootsie Pops decorated with scary faces. I couldn't keep enough of them out and sold every single one. This year I added a little colored nylon mess to them and made two bags worth, thinking they'd be a hit again. Boy was I wrong! I think I only sold around 5 of them. Anyone want to buy around 30 cutely, spookily decorated Toostie Pops? Email me (address to the right) and we can discuss a price.
I did pick up a couple of must-haves from other vendors.
This gorgeous hank of hand dyed/hand spun yarn is from an amazing local woman. Her etsy shop is Moose in Socks. This yarn is a soybean/alpaca blend and soooo soft. It's a fingering weight, which I've never used but those beautiful colors make me want to try. What to make? (That's O's little hand there. He's a quick one, snatched it up only seconds after I snapped this picture.)
(I know, I'm breaking my own rule here.) I also bought C a new hat. I know I can knit her one myself (and I will), but it won't be nearly as amazing as this one. Isn't she a sweet pea?
I also started an etsy shop, you can find it here. I've got a few pens that my Dad turned on there as well as one of my Halloween table runners. I plan on putting some homemade dresses on as well as some of my hubby handiwork (Oh yeah hubby, did I forget to tell you?) I'll preview items here first.
Well off to the design board (I really don't have a design board, but I can dream). My next project is to design a blanket for their car seats to keep them warm during Alaska's cold winter, something that they can't kick off. They've gotten too big for those elastic thingys that go over the top of the car seat. I'll keep you updated!
