Whats up with ANC

Hello crafters,

Hope you have been well.

These last few months have been supremely productive and busy at ANC. So let me bring you up to speed with the events and what’s brewing here for the holidays:

  1. I completed my 4th marathon this year at Sydney. It was the most gorgeous route and had so much fun with friends and family. Running is such an awesome way of calming down for me. I can totally listen to podcasts and run for hours at a stretch. Do you run/exercise/swim/bike to sort-of-meditate? Photo 18-9-17, 9 41 22 am
  2. I processed my first wholesale order for the holidays. It was so much joy creating those beautiful bags. I love the whole process of choosing the fabrics all the way to shipping the bags.
  3. I am now getting ready for the holiday market organized by Etsy here in Canberra. ANC is in production full swing and have purchased gorgeous fabrics for the holiday season. If you would like to order in bulk (>5 bags) contact me on anerdycrocheter@gmail.com and we can discuss more about custom made bags.IMG_3669.JPG
  4. The knitting project on my needles this month is this gorgeous lace scarf. I cannot keep my hands off of it. The yarn is Knitpicks Alpaca cloud in Sophia. It is super soft and I will keep you posted on its progress.Photo 24-9-17, 10 13 51 am

Get ready for loads of holiday songs, bags, trees, decorations, and clothes. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Work hard during the week and harder in the weekends.

Back to crafting.

Knitting projects

Lace Knitted scarf

To challenge myself a little I started lace knitting in this scarf for a friend.

The pattern is super simple and easy to memorize.It is a free pattern and has a chart with it which turns out is far easier to follow for lace knitting. You can find free pattern for this scarf here. I just didn’t put in the nupp stitches.

It took me a little over 3 months to make this super long scarf. But I am so happy with the end product. It is completely worth the time. And the yarn is gorgeous.

I used Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace yarn for this and changed colors at the end of each skein.

Hope you are having a super crafty weekend..

Cheers.

New Year goals and trellis bags

Half way through 2016 I started setting up SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time bound). I set up my dream life, 5 year goals, annual, quarterly, monthly and daily goals. I have to say it has worked really well so far. It has given me the clarity I needed to see where my small teeny-tiny business is headed.  So for this new year, I have some ambitious goals that I plan to work towards each day both in my professional and personal lives. Do you set goals each year and has it worked for you?

Some of the incredible habits I have installed in this last year is journaling, daily planning, and  5 mins of french learning each day. I do not start my day without it and it definitely has helped me accomplish a lot during busy times and keep up with all the errands and activities.

To start of this new year on a productive note, I have these beauties available on the store. I am absolutely in love with Trellis patterns and spotlight has them in these bright and vivid colors. Check them out in my madeit and etsy stores now!!
