Works-in-Progress Wednesday (01/14/15)

What are you working on this week? This week I’m starting to feel a little in the weeds, as my friends who work in restaurants say.

In ceramics, I’m still trying to find time here and there during the day to glaze. Usually I can carve out at least two hours, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon, to get some glazing done… but this week that’s been a challenge.

In soap, I’ve made some restocks and a new “Soapmaker’s Favorites” set, and now I just need the rain to stop and the humidity to drop so that the soap will cure a little more, and I can get everything wrapped and listed.

In yarn, I’m dyeing like a fiend — yarn club is going strong! I need to wind the rest of January (it’s not dry yet, though, because of the aforementioned rain and humidity), I should be done initially dyeing February by the end of the day today, although some of the skeins will need to be overdyed as the color isn’t as rich as I want, and as soon as I’m done with that, I’ll start with March. Ranger Baby has been flying off the shelves, y’all! Thank you! Expect restocks on sold-out bases the second week of February.

In knitting, I finished my second 15-in-2015 project last night, but haven’t had time to take photos yet (or good daylight… did I mention all this rain?). I’ve also started a pair of socks in Ranger Baby, to show how it works up. Photos of that just as soon as I get a couple inches into the socks!

And you know I can’t just write a post and not put a photo in it… so here’s a picture of my office. Monday was “Clean Off Your Desk” Day… hahahahahhahahah. Right.

Did you know that January 12th is "Clean Off Your Desk" Day? And do you know what I say to that? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA sob.  Also, dog photobomb! #workathome #livethedream #dogsofinstagram

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

  1. Would you be willing to do a post sometime that talks about the differences between storebought lip balm, soap, etc. and the stuff you make? I’m curious as to the differences. Better product? The joy of supporting a small business? No testing on animals? Something else?

    • Can I make a joke about how since I used to wash Old Dog with my soap, technically it *was* tested on animals…? (It did wonders for her dry old skin!). Heh.

      But seriously, yes! I will put that in the queue! 🙂
