Having fun for a bit

With the holidays just around the corner, the orders for knitted items have been flooding my email. I have pumpkin hats and mouse hats and boob hats(aka knitty titty)galore to make. I love making these things and really enjoy the little bit of spending money that these orders being in but I also have started feeling like its work and I don’t love that. I want to knit for fun and because I love the craft not because I am on a deadline. I don’t want this to become a job. So I took a break from all my orders, put them away for a minute and started knitting something that I wanted to not something I had to. And it was great!!!

I have been dying to try my hand at entrelac. I love the way it looks but have always been intimidated by it. Seemed very difficult and I am not one to so really complicated patterns. To my surprise it was so simple! Here is a pic of the scarf I started

It will have to be blocked but I think it’s turning out great. I am hoping to finish it today. Feeling very renewed to be knitting for fun for a bit.

I also took some time off to hang with this cutie yesterday.

And to fold up my diapers that have been waiting to be put away

All in all it was a nice relaxing day that has me amped back up and ready to start back on my orders.
