In like a lion or, a fox…?

March arrived with a couple of little back to back icy storms, but it held the promise of a thaw…

blue-fox

And then we had a satisfying morning watching the neighborhood fox hunt (unsuccessfully) in the yard…

blue-shovel

Followed shortly thereafter by more f*cking snow.

So it’s back to the wintertime blues.

Quite literally – I realized much of what I’ve been working on lately is blue, which is a little odd for me…

blue-sperry

Like this Sperry sweater (I’m a little afraid it doesn’t have as much ease as I’d like, but I’m not quite far enough along to know for sure…)

blue-velvet

And this scrappy little quilt made from clothes that were both mine and not that’s much farther along than this now…

blue-stole

And finally, this big “old shale” stole out of recycled yarn.  I wanted to restock my etsy shop with some handknits like this, but I think etsy has gotten too evil for me – do you have a suggestion for a new marketplace site to use for handmade goodies?

  1. Cute fox. Eek about Etsy. A lot of sellers i know and/or amire have been pretty feed up with Etsy for a while now and so most decided to integrate a cart (like Big Cartel) on their own websites. So I rarely even look at Etsy anymore. What kinds of stuff are you looking for?

    • I liked the marketplace aspect of Etsy – the way someone could bump into your stuff by searching for something random, or the trendy cultural component of folks shopping there instead of at the mall – I’ll never get that traffic here! I also like the emporium-like quality with folks selling notions and whatnot. But yeah, Etsy has been going downhill like Ebay did…
