Things are starting to settle in at the new apartment, and I had a wild burst of activity earlier in the week that allowed me to both 1) knit stuff and 2) make stuff for Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe. Hooray!
My sockhead hat is progressing slowly but surely. Just about the start the stockinette portion now.
Hot Pink Galicia:
As you can see, I abandoned my mitten plan for this lovely yarn and cast on a gratifyingly-quick hat instead. I realized that I might be a bit short on yardage for the mittens, and I was definitely short on brain power for them. I wanted something to knit for which I wouldn’t have to stress about sizing, and for some reason mittens always stress me out, so hat it was. I’ll post a review of this yarn after I finish and block the hat (still searching for darning needles…).
Sweet Sheep Updates!
I’ve been hard at work trying to get a few last-minute holiday scents up in the shop. Our ever-popular sheep-shaped goat milk soap is now available in sweet-and-decadent Peppermint Cocoa, elegant-minty-floral Winter Gardenia, and bright-and-herbal Orange Rosemary.
A few other favorite scents have just been added to the lotion bar inventory, including Gingersnap, Sweet Almond, Fresh Snow, and Jingleberry. I’ve also added a READY-TO-SHIP custom gift set option, where you can choose three sample sized lotion bars from the list of available fragrances to be packaged in a cotton-muslin bag, perfect for gift-giving. Order this week to ship in time for Christmas! (Last day to order will be Friday 12/18.)
And as for reading this week, I’m back into the second of the Lord John Grey sub-series of Outlander. Not as good as the main series, but entertaining nonetheless.
Wishing you a merry and un-hectic last week before the holidays! Linking up with Yarnalong and Stitch Along Wednesday.
Hats! All the hats will be yours.
To answer your question as to why this knitter has only one hat, well, that would be because this knitter has 30 pairs of socks… and didn’t notice that she had only one hat. The good news is that I found my hat at the bottom of my backpack. But knitting hats is now on my list 🙂
I just love that yarn in your Sockhead hat! STR is my favorite sock yarn.
Yay!! I love the yarn for both hats! And the sheep soaps are too cute 🙂 Just keep knitting….
The sheep soap…so cute! Great hat pattern too.
Hats are definitely less stressful than mittens. The thumb always worries me — and you have to do that last.
Peppermint chocolate — you are a genius!
Welcome to some respite! Well done you for getting through.
So amazing that even with the big move you managed to get all those new scents into shop! You are amazing!
Love that colorway you are using for the socks. And the little soaps are so cute 😉
