I've finished 2 more baby blankets for my Etsy shop. All the blankets I've made til now, have been about 40 inches square. So many shops only offer a smaller size, I thought I'd try it out. Trouble is, I can't seem to go simpler, just smaller. These have just as many pieces and took every bit as much time. Poo. I don't know why I can't do simple, all my projects always end up complicated. These are 30 inches square. I do love them, but will probably not make this size again.
Next blankets I make, I really have to time myself. It seems like I spend a lot of hours on each one, but it might be my imagination. I'd like to sell many more, but don't want to give my time away. A timer, plus the fact that I get faster each time. I may be pricing myself out of the fun.
I made two colorways of the same design. A masculine version and a very girlie one. The next two I make will be very much like these, but bigger.
Soon, I'll have enough inventory to get a booth at a craft show. Maybe if people could touch them it'd make all the difference. Pictures are good, but these are so cuddly, like a favorite old sweater. 'Cause they are!
