What I'm Doing Now: Week 2

What I'm doing now...
Eating fruit cocktail right out of the can, alternating between coffee and cranberry juice, debating if I have time for a nap, and waiting for the dye pots to heat up.

What I'm doing this week..
My friend Sarah and I spent a whirlwind 20 hours away from our crafty jobs to go to Ikea to look at furniture for our yarn & craft areas and then went off to knit night and dinner with friends. Our staycation included staying up late talking about the yarn industry and then waking up early for breakfast and more yarn talk. Yep, we took a few hours off from our yarn jobs to talk about yarn with each other and other knitters. It was glorious.

What I'm knitting this week...
Fingerless glove (my own pattern) in the striping version of Flower Shop Inferno; Off With Her Red Self-Striping swatch

Shawl Seduction by Kelene Kinnersly. Knit from the Teancious Sock base in the colors Lucy, Fuchsia So Bright, and Bigger on the Inside.
This week in shop news...
-Shawl Seduction test knit (above) was finished a few weeks ago and Kelene released the pattern yesterday. Kelene is having a 25% off sale in her Ravelry shop for the pattern itself (details on the pattern page). Or, if you purchase any 2 more skeins of Tenacious between now and Valentines then get the pattern free! Just leave me a note when you purchase and I will send you a coupon code for the free pattern. Thank you to Kelene for that generous offer to Dyeabolical customers. I can also give you a copy of the pattern at now charge if you purchase 2 or more skeins of Tenacious Sock from me between now and the end of February.

-Don't forget the first self-striping yarns are going up for sale tonight at 7!
-Over the holidays I made several special products for the holidays, including body balms, lip balms, and new perfumes. Some of these were special just for the holidays, but look for the return of the Wool Lover's Baa-lm, Good for the Sole Foot Balm, lip balms, and solid perfumes to return in February. New soaps will be hitting the curing racks next week and ready for sale in late February or early March.

What I'm Reading...
I'm halfway through Pioneer Girl. Dang, Laura Ingalls, your life was weird and hard.

What I'm Listening To...
I needed something familiar this week, so Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone is keeping me company while I work. 

What are you doing this week?
