These sock and mitts blockers are outstanding in quality and workmanship, they are made from a woodworker from Ukraine, and I recommend them one-hundred percent if you’re looking to get some. They can be found on Etsy at Alex Workshop Design. As for the mitt blockers, so lovely, and just look at the way the thumbs tie on so that you can slide the mitten or glove over the palm & fingers with ease, then slip the thumb in last.
I am already envisioning my next glove design, and am pretty excited about my new blockers. I felt purchasing some proper blockers to photograph my knitwear accessories was just bound to happen eventually. Abelene is just over the moon about the new Feet & Hands by the way, and just can’t wait until I dress them up with forthcoming socks, and future mitts & gloves!

House Update Addendum
I am shifting gears for future Jenjoyce Design Studio Loft (a.k.a guest room, lol) move-in date. A lot of backstory, some of you have followed the details since the wildfire, but rather than get bogged down in that mire, I’d like to focus on the positives. I long to be hyper productive as I remember I was two years ago at this time, with everything I needed at my fingertips, and know I will be again, as soon as I get my crafty gear up to the house, even if it is woefully unfinished workspace, I know time flies and I can establish a new level of productivity. Oh, the latest photos of the loft . . .
The subfloor still is not in place, but the roof is on and windows all in! My old friends Light & Shadow are taking over the house already, playing their magic among the beams.
As soon as the drywall for this room is finished, plastered & painted, I am moving my gear and the furniture I’ve collected for this space IN. Jeff agrees that is okay, so with fingers crossed that might be in June? Forget the final inspection sign-off and full move-in, as Jeff and I are left with a heap of work after our builders are finished with theirs, bumping the official house move-in until who knows when, as late as late Autumn. Jeff is so overwhelmed with his workload from his job and the house, so I really have to ease up on forecasting anything. All I can do is be positive about this one room, remain in good spirits and be ready to hit the ground running as they say.
Some photos from the archives of the original loft room . . .
My familiar old space back then, again soon to be, and I have decided it is good if I post often about the progress of The Loft, even if the rest of the house progress is going slow, so expect addendums to be more frequent. I have far less stuff now, of course, and am visualizing the room to be kitted out with the essentials only, and I’m so looking forward to seeing that develop minimally.
Signing off with a massive spring downpour of rain!
