Well sadly I didn't take photos of the work that has been churned out so far. I have made 12 beanies for Handmade in the Highlands but that has had me busy and then we had a great one come in.
10 am Thursday 3rd June: Email from Country Treasure in Crookwell arrives. Requested items is 6 month old mittens in either Cobalt or Jacaranda. I reply and get the needles cranked into over drive.
9 am Friday 4th June: No sleep in here went to bed at 2am with 2.5 pairs of mittens made. Not sure if a thumb was needed or not so in each shade there is a pair with thumb and with out one. Request this time is get one pair in the post as soon as possible and follow up with another pair. So a response of there will be 4 leaving in the post today.
1pm Friday 4 pairs complete and packaged, invoice written and ready to drive to the post office and send for a weekend trip to Crookwell. Postage is just a 3 day from me to there and weekend movements help to get it there. I even considered the drive there and back to drop them off but chose to post so I could knit more beanies.
So a quick turn around at 32 minutes for each 8 ply mitten. A request filled in a day and well a happy shop owner on the other end at the work I have done for it.
The maddness wont end there as I know things are becoming popular and keeping me busy and I have a few more things to finish off before August as well. A couple of family items to knit for babies who are due and hpefully in whatever spare moments I can snatch I will knit at Mudgee. The Shellharbour Citadel Band, This Way and Feedback are travelling to Mudgee to show Mudgee the Salvation Army is back in force in Town. So I have a full on 2 days and I think I will be glad when its over with all the extra practice and time doing things for it have consumed my time. Our theme for the Weekend is Eureka! Abundant Life! and it should be good even with a Youth Jam to go and let loose at. I will try to get as much as I can made.
