January 3 2017
Happy New Year! I can’t believe we have closed out another year and are already in the midst of 2017. I did more knitting in 2016 than I have since I was on bed rest during my pregnancy 22 years ago. This was mostly because I spent a lot of time in hospital emergency and surgery waiting rooms while my father was being treated. There was also lots of waiting time at the skilled nursing rehab.
Thank you to everyone who joined our Tiny Sweater KAL. Hopefully you were able to make a few of the 52 patterns and used them in your holiday decorating.
2016 was a very successful year for our label business. We grew by 12%! Not too shabby considering I had to turn away business to care for my father.
2017 will be another great year. We have added a line of knit pillow pattern covers to our Etsy store. They feature simple lines, and use 2-4 colors per pillow. I like using a neutral color palette to keep in line with our labels. The pillows button on the bottom so that you can switch them easily. It’s an easy way to change your home decor when the need arises. Check them out in our Etsy storehttps://www.etsy.com/listing/483296086/new-knit-pillow-pattern-home?ref=shop_home_active_11
I like to use organic cotton when ever possible. These pillows were knit in Blue Skye Fibers organic cotton, worsted weight.
