Feet Don't Fail Me Now
I have survived Day 1 of the Knitting Arts Anniversary Sale.
My feet hurt. A lot. But it was a very successful day, sale wise. And when I closed out the cash register tonight we were only off by 35 cents. In our favor. I also got to draw the winning name of today's raffle prize! We're giving away a prize every day. The grand prize on the last day of the sale is an Ott floor lamp. I wish I could enter the raffle.
So ... anyway ... I may have been known to have said in the past, "I wish someone would pay me to knit."
This, knitting fans, will soon become a Parisian Beret for one of our customers. There I was sitting in the store yesterday ON MY DAY OFF doing some enforced knitting on the Sweater of Doom. In walks a lady who asks, "Do you work here?" It seemed too much trouble to explain that yes I do but not today so I just nodded. She was quite taken by one of our display hats and wondered if we had the pattern. Heck yeah we do AND we've got kits, too! Go us. Only problem, she doesn't knit. Long story short, I'm knitting it. On freakin' size 11's. I'm knitting it with two Lorna's Laces yarns, "Revelation" and "Grace". Then you thread the silk ribbon through it and la di da, throw that lady a croissant.
I think I'm getting a wee bit punchy. Time to retire to the couch because I'm back in action again tomorrow morning at 9:45. WeeEEeeEEeeEEeeEEee.
