We are undergoing the worst snowstorm yet. In fact, it is snowing sideways. It's a little crazy.
I've been productive in a crafty sense so far, trying to knit a pair of socks and modifying a hat pattern for a friend to the point of pretty much writing my own pattern. I'd probably have it done if I wasn't getting distracted every thirty seconds by various things.
The new accomplishment though is pictured above...thanks to the friends I was snowed in with last weekend I learned how to make beaded jewelry. Yesterday I bought supplies, hunkered down this morning, and translated that knowledge into knitting stitch markers.
Keep your eyes open, because an Etsy shop is not far behind. And my local yarn shop has already expressed an interest in selling them in their store. This set is for me because there's little stupid errors here and there, but the next set will be for sale. I'll make money off my hobbies one of these days.
