Back in the swing of things

Back in December, my community (led by my aunt Colleen) had a sort of a Christmas Bazaar at the old railroad depot in my hometown. It was a ton of fun, and I definitely hope we do it again this year.

I sold quite a few pairs of socks.

After the furious knitting that I did in preparation for the Bazaar, compounded with a couple of special orders for Christmas presents, along with my OWN knitting for Christmas presents, I was pretty wiped out with knitting for a while.

I tried to pick it up here and there a few times after the holiday season, but couldn’t manage much enthusiasm and soon laid it down again.

Well, I finally rediscovered my gusto!

I’ve been knitting more socks (to sell), which I know isn’t exactly the most lucrative business, and I know I’ll never make enough to cover the labor involved. But as I enjoy knitting, and as I need a little spare income (as I am recently engaged and trying to plan a wedding), I figured my time could be spent worse.

Here are my latest sockies in their natural habitat (not).
