Stitch markers, mugs, pictures and roving

Over the last couple of months I haven’t done half of the things I’ve meant to do.  One outstanding task, I’ve finally worked on is fully updating the Dartmoor Yarn Company website shop. Here’s what I’ve added…

Stitch MarkersKnitting and Crochet Stitch Markers

I absolutely love making stitch markers, but during November haven’t been able to make them quick enough to have any left after fairs to put in the shop. But finally there are some  for sale, both for knitters and for those who crochet…

Hand Embroidered Pictures

I confess I may have been avoiding putting these in the shop, because I don’t really want to part with them…

Mugs

I’m down to my last three…

Roving

This really should have been up before now!

And I’m sure everyone has their supply of Christmas colours for spinning or felting this year – but just in case, and there’s always next year…

Okay, so I’m not going to win an award for business woman of 2017, but sometimes there’s far more important things to do than update your web shop.

 

Photographing Projects

I’ve been waiting ages to photograph the remaining project bags that I didn’t sell at Chagford Show two weeks ago. I like to take project photographs outside to get the better light and I find the plants give a better backdrop. However every time I’ve had a moment to photograph the project bags, it’s either been brilliant sunshine or rain. Being Dartmoor, of course it’s been mostly rain.

Teeny Tiny Sheep Keyring

I can’t believe the last time I showed you a Finished object was ten days ago. Although I’ve got some large knitting projects on the go,  I’ve plenty of small ones I want to knit. But I haven’t been able to get my head into the right space to sit down and work on even my simplest small ideas.

I finally seem to have my mojo back today and have knitted a tiny teeny sheep for a sheep keyring kit!

 

Now he’s hanging out in the shop with the other keyring kits, I’m off to work on some more ideas.

Hope your creativity’s been more in evidence than mine of late.
