A couple weeks ago, Tom and I cancelled our vacation to instead do a staycation — well, a working vacation. The goal? The Daily Knitting Project. The purpose? Get me doing some knitting and live instruction online.
I am happy to report it worked. I chose a project I’d been meaning to get to on the Silver Reed LK150 and got to work. I did lessons on:
unboxing the LK
winding the yarn
knitting three color stripes
modifying a pattern to fit my shape and needs, from a Tee to a Tank
I’ll be having these videos professionally edited and added to the Courses area of the website. Meanwhile, you can view them in their chatty entirety on the Knitting Today Facebook page. Enjoy!
Just wanted to post a quick status update on the current three priorities.
Priority 1: Knittingtoday.com e-commerce website.
I’m currently working on getting the Knitting Today e-commerce website operational. I can’t make money if I can’t sell anything and that is the vehicle to sell it through. We are selling out existing stock from the storefront in our e-bay stores (bondknitter and icefisherman1). I’m curious, what would you buy online if I offered it? Needles, machines, patterns, yarn, clubs, knitalongs? Be specific!!!
Priority Two: Education and Inspiration.
Finish some existing projects and start a new one.
I am so close to finishing the Stormy Weather Tunic turned Cardigan that I can taste it! Of course I’m not going to wear it in 92 degree heat, but I want it ready for cool nights on the pontoon.
Marseille Tee, going to LK150 this one. Just need to get started on the gauge swatch. I’ll blog and periscope while I’m doing it.
Fisher Lassie, the next hand knit cardigan. Need to finish the gauge swatch and write the blog post about it.
Reyna, a handknit scarf saved for community knitting.
Priority 3: Education and Community.
Get some online classes loaded and discussion going in the forums. I have formatting and design issues to work through. But the two classes I have on my list is: Get It Out of the Box (LK150) and Cables (USM and LK150). I have a multitude of hand knitting ideas floating around, but I don’t think of those as classes, rather instruction during the Knitalongs.
Thank you, each of you, for hanging in here with me while I get everything operational. Comment below and let me know what you are working on now!
