Craft On: Crafting and Sales
This past week I have been working on socks and mittens. The socks will probably be finished either this weekend, or shortly after that. It's fun to watch the stripes appear, and it is easy, mindless knitting to do while I am doing or listening to something else. The toe and heel are done exactly the same, and are not too difficult to remember, either. The mittens are moving right along, and I am hoping to get the trio finished so I can block and take photographs in the next couple weeks, then get the pattern to my tech editor shortly after that. Everything takes me a bit longer than I expect now, which I have started to expect, but I am evidently still not quite there on just how much more time it will take.
Since today and tomorrow are the last two days of the Ember Days for this season, I thought I would put this pattern on sale for 30% off through tomorrow night at midnight, end of day PDT, May 29, 2021. You can use the coupon code emberdays2 on both PayHip and Ravelry.
But wait, there's more! As it is Memorial Day weekend, I am also putting all my individually sold patterns in my PayHip store and Ravelry store on sale for 20% off with the coupon code MemorialDay through the end of the day PDT, Monday, May 31, 2021. We all need a little pick me up, so I thought that this was as good a reason as any. I hope you enjoy your discount on these patterns!
I have been able to spend a little more time with Desert Queen, and it's getting really good. Now I know better than to make predictions about how long it will take me to finish. Nejat has become interested in the story, and she has had me read a little to her every now and then.
Linking to Unraveled Wednesday.
