Winters Over!!!!

So it has been a few weeks since we had class and I have been busy still. The snow storm last week was the reason class was cancelled. So what did I do? I sent an email homework assignment to my students. No snow can interpret my development of new talent. I did a quick video tutorial on making a pillow so they could practice some basic skills. This is in order for us to hit the ground running next week with their official project.

As for my personal projects, I have been arm knitting scarves like crazy. Here are some of them. Feel free to order one or 3. We filled our first orders and shipped it today. So exciting! Sourcing did present a challenge. Still waiting on yarn to come in but we found so many yarn shops in Charlotte. It’s to the point that we are thinking of hanging out there on Saturdays. My dear husband is so into this too. Even baby girl is busy arm knitting and trying to sell her items. Don't worry we aren't running a sweat shop, but if you know Kindal you know it's impossible to stop her. She was even teaching her "Grammie" this weekend

Well I am finishing up my spring dress. Here is a picture of the original pattern that I completely reworked to my liking. If I wasn't reworking it I would use the fitting guidelines to make it perfect as is, but I can't just leave it alone. The line on the B one is similar to how my dress will be,

 

I added a custom yolk and a zipper so I can dress up and still give Malachi what he's after. I refuse to comprise fashionableness for functionality. I can have it all. Here's what it looks like so far. Being trapped home for.3 days seemed like I would have completed it but with 3 kids and a husband who work 12 hr. shifts all those days, it wasn't happening. Hopeful tonight I can complete this one and have an update by the weekend so I can start on the next one.
