What's coming up?

I was shopping around Etsy the other day, yes I'll admit i was looking for inspiration for something new to make. What did I come up with?? Socks!! I haven't knitted a pair of socks in a few years and I just found my last missing sock needle , it's destiny!!

I was looking at sock yarn the other day and my hubby got so excited about the prospect of having hand knit socks.... He might get really mad if I tell you this, but last winter I was thinking of knitting something and socks again came up and he actually asked me to teach him how to knit so he could make some socks. We'll just leave it to say that he doesn't have either the fine dexterity or the patience to knit, so that was a quickly abandoned project.

So sock knitting it is. I have a pair in the works for Andrew, and some other yarn ready and waiting. I think I'm going to start selling custom socks, made exactly for your foot size, so keep an eye out ... I should be able to make the first post this weekend!

What else is coming up? I have another Etsy artist, mycreativepaper, working on some new banners, avitars and business cards for me. I'm trying to give my store an official image, something more than a picture of the favors at our wedding. So my first banner is ready!!

Hopefully a new blog design is in my future as well! I'm getting rather bored with the standard blogger template and I feel like I'm ready for something bigger than that. I've been struggling with this one lately. I haven't found any free templates that I like. I'm trying to convince myself that it would be OK to purchase one, but I just can't do it. By day I am a biomedical engineer, so and as much as I hate programming, with lots of patience and chocolate breaks I should be perfectly capable of writing my own, or at the very least, modifying one of the free ones to something that I actually like. It's really taken a lot of convincing but I think I can do it. We'll see how long it takes, but I'll keep you posted.

Oh and there may be some sewing this weekend. According to the poll, you guys would like to see some more purses in my store. Any thoughts on what you'd like to see? I'll have to see what I have in my stash and what other patterns I can come up with.
Thanks for reading! Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to win some dish cloths!!
Until next time ...
