As in, Day Two of me being home alone for the first time in – literally – months.
My 7th-grader and 4th-grader started school yesterday, and I’ve been spending my time doing laundry, food shopping, catching up on business email, knitting a tiny sweater, and getting my calendar populated with everybody’s work and school schedules.
I’m excited about getting into a daily groove that gives me a nice balance of family, work, and me time. I’m still working on figuring out what, exactly, that looks like for me, but I’m excited about it nonetheless!
Speaking of work, I’ve re-opened custom crochet-hook ordering! If you’re new around here, let me give you the scoop: I put polymer clay handles on crochet hooks. They are pretty, they are comfortable, and they are custom-made to your specifications. There’s a lot more information about them here, as well as some customer reviews here, if you need convincing.
Hurry, though. I will close ordering sometime in October, so that I have enough time to make the hooks and ship them before Christmas.
Don’t crochet? I also have an idea for you loom-knitters out there. I’ll reveal that once I’ve had a chance to work up a few samples.
Maybe someday I will also come up with something useful for needle-knitters, but you can’t exactly put a handle on a needle, now can you? Any ideas there?
