This has been the Weekend of Polymer for me. I came up with a new cane design on a whim, and then repeated it in two more color schemes. I’m going to call this the Jubilee Cane, because it’s just so happy and party-like.
I also made a few new limited edition kaleidoscopic canes, which were basically just old stuff I didn’t want to use anymore, mushed together, cut up, and re-assembled mirror-image style.
BTW, you can see that I got my hands on a few seam rippers to try them out. I did have one problematic issue, but I hope to have that solved within the week. Stick around for updates on that.
I’m running very low on the popular Afghan Canes, so I made a new one of those today. This is to replace the one I had made previously in my Swamp color scheme, but it’s a little different because I switched clay brands and used straight-out-of-the-package colors instead of the custom mixes I used to use. I think I like it better than the original. These colors seem more swampy than before.
I’ve got a few more Afghan Canes to make, but they are time-consuming, so it may take me another day or two. I also have an idea for a pattern that is much more subdued than all of these, for those who like their crochet hook and seam ripper handles to be less of a riot of color and pattern.
My goal is to finish up all of the cane-making by tomorrow so that I can get the shop updated with the new patterns and open up custom ordering. I need to get all of this done ASAP so that you can have your orders in time for holiday gift giving!
I’ll be back to let you know when everything is ready 🙂
