I'm a Winner

This is a transcript of a phone conversation I had yesterday with a friend:

Jamie: I am such a nerd. I have been staying up late reading a new book. All I want to do these days is read.
Me: I have been staying up late crocheting under a blanket with the cat on my lap.
Jamie: You win.

Sigh. I have been crocheting a lot this week. My Etsy shop has received many new orders so I have been busy filling them. This is what I wanted when I opened my shop: orders. But now I am so nervous about making items for strangers. I keep checking and double checking my work to make sure there aren't any mistakes.

I have sold beanies before but always to Facebook friends or family members. Somehow selling things to people I know is not as intimidating as selling to a stranger.

I've been working on some new patterns too.

This is my rugby striped beanie with floppy flower.

Check out my shop for new designs, coming soon!


  1. Too cute..if only I had a girl! I started knitting a few months ago but haven't actually finished anything yet.

  2. That beanie is so cute. My kids are 5 and 7 now but I cloth diapered my second, breast fed, made my own baby food too. I am a Christian mom and into natural living. I am visiting from the D list. I'd love to have you stop by for a visit-

  3. Thank you Theresa! I look forward to checking out your blog!
