Getting out of a funk
First we got some bad news, then David got sick, then it was a long work week (spring ordering began - my first big ordering season . . . lots of work!), then I got sick. As is usually my luck I started to really get sick just at the end of my week, which for me is Saturday. For those of you who haven't been to the Point on a Saturday . . . it is a sight to behold. It is hopping! Classes, shoppers, full tables of folks knitting and eating. Usually I tell my regulars that Saturday is my reward for the week. It's the day I don't pay bills, or write POs or do receiving, I just work with customers and enjoy the regulars and the general (chaotic) fun of the day. I did not get to enjoy Saturday because I felt AWFUL. Of course Sunday and Monday (my day's off) was when I got to feel really sick.
Since I felt that I had spent most of the week feeling sorry for myself (and the first paragraph of this blog reinforces that!) I decided to change my !@#%$^ attitude and make this week better. Monday I finished David's vest (my own design)
My Mr Green Jeans has taken a pause while I do some sample knitting for the shop. Here's how it's coming along
Here's the sassy little one skein Misti Alpaca scarf I knit up for the store. It's a great pattern for everyone who has (or sees one at the Point) skein of Misti and doesn't know what to do with it.
