Time to Start Thinking About...(dare I say it???) the Holidays!


I mentioned in my previous post that I had 
spent the summer knitting mittens.
Yesterday I listed them in my Etsy Shop.
On the one hand,
it seems incredibly early to start thinking
about the upcoming holiday season.
But, as a "shopkeeper," now is the
time for me to start increasing stock
and thinking about gift items..
This is particularly true
since handmade items have a limited number available.
There are only so many hours in the day
in which to make and knit things.
So, for me,
the holiday season has begun!


My mittens are a wool/mohair blend. 
You will not find a cozier mitten to keep
your hands toasty this winter!
They are available in ten colors.
The intricate Celtic cable on the mitten
matches the cable on my
White Cloche, making a lovely set.


So, think about getting a jump on the season.
Wouldn't it be nice to have all your
gift giving shopping done by
Thanksgiving?

Hard to believe, isn't it...time to begin making and selling for Christmas. I've begun my charity knitting of hats for all the children in the valley. It's a good feeling.

OMGosh girlfriend! I went to your Etsy shop... I knew I shouldn't look because, well, no money and I knew I was going to look at beautiousness! :D Well, I saw that unstructured sweater vest and I repeat OMGosh! I've been looking for a pattern for that exact look (I hate to admit that since the fibromyalgia pounds have magnetically stuck to my thighs and everywhere else for that matter) so I can bare to look in the mirror once in a while! Please tell me that is a pattern I can purchase, as the one in your shop would most certainly not fit my current pudge?!
It is beautiful either way!
Hugs my sweet blogging sister,
Beth P
P.S. those cable mittens are to die for! You were indeed a busy bee this summer :D
