Working like crazy!!!!!

I have not posted because I have been stuck at work!!!! My partner's wife had a baby and he's been out for almost 2 weeks already. Phew. I am exhausted. In addition I finally had 2 days off this weekend, and I had a booth at a local Cranberry Festival. It was alot of fun, but it was work. I sold alot of newsboy caps and some scarfs. Seems to be most people don't want to pay more than $30.00. I have a gorgeous shawl that is made with Colinette Giotto. I put a pretty purple flower pin on it and priced it at $70.00 ( a steal, when you know how much that yarn costs). Every person that passed my booth stopped, and looked at it. Saw the price tag, kept going. Oh well, I guess I'll wear it on my next vacation. My sister and I also sold homemade baked goods. Growing up we called our grandmother Grandmom Goodie. She was always baking something. Her pie crust was the best I have ever tasted. So we decided to call ourselves Grandmom Goody's Girls. We sold out of the baked stuff. Good thing too because, I made from scratch cranberry brownies and yum, I would have continued to eat them. A special thanks to my mom who really helped out, in the kitchen and at the craft fair. I also enjoy meeting all the fellow knitters that are out and about at these craft fairs. It's always enjoyable for me to see other people's work. I met this very nice lady Joann who had some really cool hand knitted socks. Someday I'm going to try the sock thing, and it will be one more kind of yarn to be added to the growing stash pile!!!!!

People just don't realize how much work goes into knitted items, and they never want to pay what they are worth. I hope life slows down for ya :)
