Monday Update: February 18, 2013

It's Family Day here in Ontario, and a few other provinces, so that means I get paid to stay home and knit! That's how I like to look at it anyway. I've been a busy little bee the past few days, knitting quite a bit. Unfortunately, I haven't been finishing many skeins, but I'm not about to be a downer!
The first thing I knit was this pretty blue scarf. It's made of an entire skein of vintage yarn that I got from the older woman last year. I didn't weave in the ends yet, but that will only take a few minutes to do. I like to wait until I have a bunch of items to do it, and do them all at once. This makes one less skein in my stash, and my total thus far is +15. Yes, still kind of backwards, but I'm making progress.
I'm trying to make a few looser, light weight scarves for the spring. I have two shows coming up that I doubt I'll sell much knitwear at, but I want to have options. I still need to make more earrings for these shows. I have my area all set up, it's just a matter of putting a podcast on and get to getting.
Next up is a set I finished knitting in the past couple days. It's my usual neck warmer pattern with the eyelets, paired with a ribbed head band/ear warmer. I actually really like the way these look together. I think I still have enough yarn to make one more head band, so I might do that today. I'm trying to expand my repertoire of knitted items, and this is one of the things I'm considering adding to my line. What do you think? It's fairly simple, but I think it looks really nice with the neck warmer.

I really can't complain about how life is right now. There have been some down days, and the bank account is a little thin, but overall I'm happy. I think I'm going to finish watching this episode of The Knit Girllls, and then go work out.
Happy Monday everyone!
