Knitting has been keeping me rather busy. Not because I'm constantly stocking my Etsy shop with new items. That hasn't been happening. That's actually been put on hold since nothing happened on that shop in over a year. I've sold one pair of socks in the past 14 months. There have been sales outside Etsy.
Etsy, you will be left behind. After my current listings expire that's it. Time can be better spent on other activities.
This year I'm going to devote more time to my vegetable garden. Last year was frustrating because there were too many weeds and I couldn't keep up with the blanching and freezing. Over the winter I took advantage of a sale on food dehydrators. We'll see how that works out.
March is moving along nicely here in SE Michigan.
Since I haven't seen this blog in quite some time, I sure hope that the technical difficulties that I was experiencing on my last visit have resolved themselves. My background was a klaflouey and several widgets had minds all their own. After attempts to fix that it only became worse and abandonment set it.
Little socks. Lots of little socks.
This is one pair that have been knitted for an order I received. Every time the same customer orders ten pairs of tiny socks I have to feverishly knit them under pressure. You'd think I'd just knit them and have an ongoing supply. It's my goal once this order has been shipped.
Exercise and Diet
What can I say about that? I've gained instead of lost. The Zero Belly Diet worked for about two weeks. My scale showed a four pound loss then it showed a four pound gain and it's been pretty much stuck there ever since. I've been stuck sitting at my desk more at work over the past two months which hasn't helped. My elliptical and Total Gym have been seeing more of me and it's so encouraging to see my mileage on the dry erase board on the wall. At first I was using them every single day which I think is what usually leads me to exercise burn-out. So, outside walking has been added. My plan was also to master the art of hoola hooping. When I went out to look for my hoop it was located behind a stack of odds and ends of big, heavy things and it was broken. When I mentioned that to Steve he asked me why I would put my hoop behind a fireplace insert and under a hydraulic jack.
Right....... That was me who did that. My items usually get stashed here and there when a clean-up happens. Maybe that's why I go on my own little strikes by just piling yarns here and there.
Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
