Summertime brings warm days and furious knitting. I know that knitting usually dies down for some knitters in the summer because people don't typically enjoy piles of wool in their laps. However, summer is the time that I knit like mad to have things to sell in the farm store.
Knitting is my pleasure and started as a hobby. But over the years, it has become a source of income and it's nice combo if you ask me. I truly love to knit, teach knitting, surround myself with yarn, squish yarn, learn, explore and immerse myself in the whole knit world.
Yes, it's a lot of work and not nearly enough money per time that I invest. But I'm doing something I love and the customers at the farm seem to love the finished products.
I've been making a bunch of hats, some cowls and I also fit in a sweater for Chase.
A handsome little classic sweater that will fit him all winter (I hope).
I sprinkled in a few other photos....some stash diving and organizing, baby Grant getting big!, and Liz teaching a felted soap class.
I am working on my fall class schedule so hoping that will be posted soon.
On another note, the farm is sponsoring a very informative and important seminar.
Alpaca owners: check it out! Registration has to be done by September 1st!
Off White Hat: Donnie Hat
Chase's Sweater: Wyatt
Fair Isle (personal pattern)
I have a few more knits I just completed but forgot to take a picture. I'll have to do that and post another day.
For now, hope you are enjoying the last days of summer!
