Cleaning up My Knitting Room
I've been working in my knitting room to get it straightened out. My long bed machine is under a stack of fabric. (How did that happen??) LOL I'm trying to get things organized again, as it is sooo confusing, even to me. I can't find a single thing. It is starting to look better now, & I'm making some progress. I want to get busy & knit some sweaters for the shelter before Dec., as that is when I usually take my donation up. I like to bring in a box of yarn from the garage & knit it all up into children's sweaters. I miss all the MK that I did before. I have a space cleared out by my SR 860 & want to start knitting. I'm selling so many small appliance covers that I haven't had the time to do anything else.
I used to sell my diaper covers on a site called Hyena Cart. I did a lot of business with Karen, & kept busy, but in the last few years the site has lost most of it's members, & that includes buyers. When I started selling there, there were 117 knitting & crocheting stores. Now there are 4. She is trying to get a fb site going but I'm not sure that will be a go. I think that HYC has had it's day in the sun, & probably won't attract a lot of moms. If she can attract some customers I will start selling on her site. I've sold a few diaper covers on fb through my BST store. They haven't caught on yet, like they did on eBay.

Resurrecting my Blog
I had a hard time getting back on my blog. I couldn't get the right password & email address to get it back up & running again.
I haven't done much knitting for the last year. I've been busy sewing small appliance covers to sell on eBay. I have knit a couple of things for the shelter but that's about it. My diaper covers are not selling well. No one is buying diaper covers on there, mine or anyone else's. There is barely one page of them. I have opened a BST(buy sell trade) group on fb so maybe I can get that going. So far I only have 13 members but am hoping that will take off. I have sold a couple of them there.
China & other countries have taken over eBay & Amazon. They are able to sell the same product more cheaply than US based sellers. Most of the things they sell are not the cheap things that seemed to be the norm for so long. Now, their products are as good or better than what US sellers were making. I have a friend that sold on Amazon & she said that as soon as the bootleg site is taken down, they are back on selling again.
I don't like to get into politics, but am so worried for our country with the President creating havoc. Please write your representatives & get that madman out. :)
