More March Madness

Just finished a summer poncho. But the neck is not as good as it could be. I started it with a vision of how I wanted it to look, and it turned out really well! I am excited about the overall structure of it. But I had to "do" one first to get the kinks out. So my prototype is for sale here, I am not going to put it on Etsy. I will put its sisters on there for $45.00 but the im-perfect one I will price at $20. The neck is the only thing that didn't turn out great. It can easily be hidden by a flower brooch, or pin, or bow. I just don't want to add that complexity to the site. It is made from a Merino/acrylic blend yarn that has great sheen, and drape. This one is a pretty sherbet colored one, that will flatter any skin tone. It is to be draped over the shoulders to help protect from the sun, and also ward off some summer evening chills. Asymetrical hem gives you versatility of looks, and the length can be converted to a hoodie. One size fits most. ♥

March, march, march!

"March, march, march! My feet are killing me!" -Winnifred the Elephant from Disney's Jungle Book
That is the theme for March, keep pluggin on. Online sales have screeched to a halt on Etsy. But that doesn't stop me. I ask colleagues what they think of when I say "spring" and "knitted" and I get blank looks.
Well I am knitting triangle shoulder sarongs? Still formulating the name.. It is another item I just cooked up. Super easy, using my favorite style needle and stitch. It is getting good reviews from the guinea people (ie: friends a work). Speaking of friends at work, I am getting personal network orders. six baby headbands w flowers for one person, and I just finished a very pretty soft harvest colored scarf for a friend at work too. The picture is at my site, here:

Plus this lul provides me time to knit stuff FOR ME!!

My hubby has reminded me to get the Monkey Hat Beanie on the site too.... but I just can't get it to the priority spot in my brain. I have the yarn... ugh, guess I have to stay true to my March Mantra.. march, march, march.

Doesn't Betty look great?? I put her in my un-used size 6 jeans (boo) and a shirt I accidentally bought 3 of on line!!! Im gonna get in those jeans, tho.
Alright, lunch time is almost over. Still no blog subscribers yet. Gotta get the word out!
