We woke to a winter wonderland this morning. The first significant snow of the winter. The first snow is always pretty, but by March it gets pretty old! We were away this weekend and I didn't get my mail until this morning- and what a treat! In it was my package from my Knitting Circle SP, who turned out to be Kathleen.
She made me a pair of really pretty, comfy slippers and some fingerless mitts (which I am wearing now) I've been wanting to make myself a pair but just haven't found the time so I was very excited to get them. She also sent some hot cocoa mix and a book called Murder Can Crash Your Party - both just perfect for a snowy day. And can you see the knitting ball ornament in the picture - how cute is that?!
One of the reasons I haven't had time to knit myself a pair of fingerless mitts is because I was getting ready for a craft fair. Last Thursday night was the annual Christmas Shopping night for our town and the 8th grade class always sponsors a craft fair to earn money for their trip. I did pretty well (if I don't stop to think about the amount of time I spent knitting all the stuff I sold!) I found that using pretty manikin heads (leftover from my DDs beauty school days) helped attract customers, who said "I want to look like that!" LOL. Some of the things I sold were felted bags (you've seen enough of them on my blog!) and felted hats, headbands, scarves, cowls
