I Have a Confession

I have been working all week trying to get as many items finished as possible for the craft show next weekend.  I have done ok, but I still have projects that I wish I would be able to add.  I really should have spent some time on fingerless gloves and headband/earwarmers.  Instead I made hats, lots and lots of hats. 

My confession that I have is  - I make hats and then I don't finish them.  For example:  I have a total of 16 hats that still need me to cut the extra yarn.  This also means I need to hide the yarn from the cast on row.  I wish that I would just finish them before putting them away.  I have got to get better at this.  

The good news is that I have a total of 50 items that I will be able to sell at the craft show!  I had no idea how many hats and other random knitted items I actually had.  I am crossing my fingers that people are in the buying mood and will want to purchase items that I have made.  

After the craft show I will need to get on top of things and get my items listed on etsy.  I also plan to offer a coupon code for the fall.   Be looking for it and pass the code on to friends.  :)  I started a facebook page for my blog and hope that could be another way of getting word out about my items for sale.  There is nothing added to the page just yet, but I am working on getting more info and pictures added this week.   Feel free to "Like" my page and suggest it to your friends.

  1. I make jewelry for craft shows around the central valley of California and I do the same dumb thing! Make a bracelet or necklace and don't do the finish work at that time. What happens? I end up working like a FIEND the night before the event to clean everything up. UG!! Let's promise ourselves we will NOT DO THIS during 2013 :o)
