Fox sweater, Christmas decorations and another NEWT!

It's been a while eh? Well I had lost my access codes. I promise it won't happen again. I have written them down carefully and stored them in a safe place now.

In the meantime I've done some knitting: I finished this Fox sweater.

I have also added some crochet Santons to my Advent / Christmas corner.

Here's a close up on the crochet characters.

And recently I've decided to attempt another NEWT in the HPKCHC (I feel pointsy, always). In 4 months I want to vanish 3000 yards of leftovers into mini items. Not only will it make space in my stash but it'll increase my inventory as they'll go into my shop for sale.

I know this is a bit of a crazy challenge, but it's the purpose of NEWTs to be... crazy. To succeed I need to vanish an average of 167 yards per week. As you can see on the picture above, I'm ok for week 1. Most difficult will be to stay focused.

Wish you all a great weekend!

Lace shawl, mail and drawings...

This week has been crazy busy, so I think time has come to look back on all what happened.

1. I finished my Mermaid's Song shawl. It's so lacy it was hard to take a proper picture. I'm still not a big fan of lace knitting, I think I'll never be (even if I love this shawlette!). It'll probably be a while before my next lacy project.

2. I got the November issue of Simply Knitting in the mail: not only does it come with a huge wooden button...

But it came with the best surprise ever: my Heatwave Hippo is featured inside!

3. I've listed some new artwork in my Etsy store: I continued the astrology series with Sagittarius and Pisces...
