**None of this counts toward my May Craft Challenge since I technically completed them in April**
A newborn baby kicking sack. I used the Sheepy Sack pattern (free) and it was super easy and quick. I plan on doing more of these, just a little bit differently (as I did here). I used my own hand dyed 100% wool yarn in the unnamed colorway (trying to be gender neutral). A kicking sack is worn instead of pants for naps. It can be lanolized and used with cloth diapers just like longies.
Next time I make it, I won’t do an i-cord.
1. Because I hate making i-cord.
If I didn’t tempt you enough with the last post of Sprinkles cupcakes, here is a little bit of yum. Because everything is better with fresh whipped cream and nonpareils. Even chocolate cake that you make in the microwave that is so freaking sweet that you have to share it with at least 2 or 3 other people. This is my “oh crud, I really want dessert, but didn’t make anything” recipe. I usually add in a small handful of chocolate chips before nuking.
For the past month or so, I have been dyeing wool roving and selling it to my local yarn shop (LYS). I have many pictures to share, so I will split them up over a few days. I plan on re-launching my etsy shop with my roving and handspun yarns on October 1. I will also offer custom spinning for people that like a particular roving but don’t spin. Stay tuned!
Today we will see my “Gradual” line that was sold to my LYS last month.
