New Projects on My Horizon

The last two days I've been shopping for new craft supplies. I hope I can get some of these things made and sold so I can recoup some of my investments.

Right now I'm working on two snoods. One if worsted weight yarn for every day wear in burgundy. The other is fine crochet cotton in black with red garnet colored square beads for celebrations. These are prototypes I plan to wear myself, but will be listed in my Etsy store of examples for custom orders.

3. I also picked up 'eye's for the bunny I knitted already.

And as soon as I find my small knitting loom I want to start making boot toppers.

And I'm really excited to find a new book on making sock monkeys and other sock animals.

And I have a whole lot of Harry Potter themed Christmas ornaments I want to make. I've steered away because of copyright issues, but now I see that Etsy is full of such things and the only one not making money off of it is me. I bought the stuff to make Golden Snitches yesterday. We'll see how it goes.

Right now what I really need is a giant table so I can work on all these things.

I bought a lot of beads for future jewelry projects as well. I'll keep you all posted.

I also made a gauge square for a wrap around sweater I wanted to knit. I kept waiting for the yarn to go on sale. This week, I thought it was on sale, but the 'over-dyed' yarn wasn't included in the sale, so I switched to a similar yarn which is shown in the photo. I got 5 skeins. I hope that is enough.

Yarn for a sweater.
I can't wait to get started on all these new projects.
