Last months have been crazy with the start-up of The Crafty Room, although they have also been very rewarding. We enjoy every step we take and the tiredness is a good thing beacuse it is the result of a creative work we are doing with lots of love and enthusiasm.
Every day we have more and more pupils, we are best known and new projects and orders grow. But as my friend Gemma, from Wasel Wasel, warned me, it is neccesary to be patient because the beginnings are difficult. To get ourselves known and as a declaration of principles we are organizing an urban knitting. And I cannot be more satisfied because it is great to carry out a craft action with friends and crafters, “pure spirit The Crafty Room“. If you are in Valencia or the surrounding area, come to Plaza de Honduras on May 11 in the morning 😉
Although I do not have much time, I keep on preparing orders on Deshilachado and trying new techniques. I insisted on learning to knit short rows and I have made this precious cowl with a pattern by The Purl Bee.
And I use the time before going to bed to make little things that relax me. I have looked for ideas on the books I have, those I buy filled with enthusiasm but I never have time to see them calmly. I have decided that I should take advantage of them. When you have no time it is great if somebody gives you the ideas and patterns, isn’t it?
Anyway I do not learn my lesson and last weekend I was at Creativa fair, that took place in Valencia. I bought fabrics for patchwork, indeed, and a fancy I have been wanting for a long time, a “tricotín”. I am glad that Creativa takes place again in Valencia. There was so many people, so I hope it will be back next year.
