Slowing Down

08Jun10

I’ve been dealing with some health issues lately that have been slowing me down quite a bit.  Nothing serious or life threatening.  Just enough of an issue to slow me down a bit.  I fatigue easily and have been dealing with a lot of nausea, a side effect of the medicine I need to take.

I’m sharing this information because I’ve fallen behind in email and correspondence and I thought I owed an explanation as to why this is the case.  I didn’t want to leave anyone in the dark.

With Summer approaching, I will be slowing down production as I take mini vacations.  I’ll be stocking my shop as I can.  I’ll also be completing custom orders that I have already received.  I can slowly take on more custom orders, but I won’t be able to commit to any deadlines and the wait time could be longer than usual.  If you’re OK with those parameters, I would be happy to work on making more items.

Thank you to everyone for all your support.

Catching Up

11Jan10

Since I started my Facebook Page I’ve been really busy.  I wanted to say Thank You to everyone for all the support and kind words.

I’ve received a lot of requests for orders in the past week and I’m trying to answer all of my emails in a timely manner.  I have found myself trying to balance time between answering emails and actually making the pieces that are being requested.  If you have sent me email with a request for a product, I will be in touch soon.


Making Time

Ready to Send

Chemo Cap modeled by my daughter, Emily.

One of my goals for this year is to make and donate items to people in need.  Newborn caps to hospitals, blankets to babies/children in need, Chemo caps for children and adults.

Just when I was thinking that maybe I don’t have enough time for such a venture, I received this message from someone I recently sent a Chemo cap to…

“Jennifer! I got the Chemo Hat in the mail today! I Love it! I was going to take a picture of it on me but I am not looking at my best these days! My Daughter said, see (name withheld) there are still good people in the world, and she is so right Jennifer you are one in a million! Thank you! May God Bless You and Yours!…”

This message made me so very happy and I feel it was an even bigger message for me to hear.  I need to make the time for those in need.  I know that my contributions will not be on a grand scale, but doesn’t every little bit help?

If you know of anyone in need, feel free to contact me.  I’ll do my best to help out.


Been Busy

27Oct09

I’ve been busy with lots of projects on needles.

I’ve never made anything for my husband before.  We’ll be spending Thanksgiving in Tahoe and he asked me if I could make him a cap for our trip.  Anxious to make something that I know he’ll wear I’ve just about completed this cap for him…

I recently received a new shipment of yarn with all sorts of great colors.  I also made this little cap that is available in my shop right now…

Elfin Cap - Chocolate Sprinkles

I have a few more things on needles I need to take pictures of.

I’ve also been busy with family.  This weekend we went on a geocaching adventure and found a spot in our city that I didn’t even know existed…

And lastly, we picked out all our pumpkins in anticipation of Halloween Night.  I even found a two headed pumpkin that right now looks like a big pumpkin butt!  LOL

Pumpkins!

 


Another Color

22Oct09

The past two days have been a little more hectic than usual.  My husband has been out of town for the past two days, my youngest has had a whopper of a head cold and my oldest has been having a hard time at school (missing mama).  I still have had time to work on another Baby As Art wrap in one of my favorite colors, Bark…

Baby As Art Wrap - Bark

We all picked up my husband from the airport tonight.  We celebrated our reunion with In-N-Out for dinner.  It was a good night.


Testing

22Oct09

Recently, Raye Law posted some beautiful twin shots on Flickr.  I was admiring the beauty of her work and then my eyes zoned in on the blanket wrapped around the babes.  I can’t help always seeing different patterns in knitting.  I love change and working on different projects.  I decided to see if I could knit the same pattern.

I started out with this pattern….

Unfortunately, I had put my work down for a second and my youngest decided to “help” me by pulling out the needles and making her own adjustments.  This is one of the reasons that I work at night.  It’s hard to get anything done during the day with my two youngest tag teaming me 😛

After that mishap I decided to try a different pattern.  I think I like this one more than the first…

Next project, another Baby As Art wrap in a different color….


It’s a Wrap!

I’ve been working on a custom order this past week.  An extra long Angel Wrap to use on twins….

Also on needles right now are some more hats and Baby As Art wraps.  I need to take more pictures…
