Spinning in a new direction
Oh boy, I am having problems concentrating on projects at hand!! One of my customers saw my Barbie knitter and said she had one too and then when I got my new Addi Knitter, she had to try it....but not to be outdone, she found this really cool knitter and brought me one too!!!! Now, I think I have the greatest customers, they are truley good to me. They bring me snacks, chocolate, sheep, and knitting machines!!! I think we like to feed each others obsessions, problem is all my weakness are out in the open, I am vulnerable, they can see my addictions. Ha, who cares!!!! I am having a blast!!! So now back to the knitter, it is big, it can knit hats, (not for my size head, which is jumbo) it can knit purses, it is really cool!!! So my idea is...I have lots of yarn that I am going to donate to make hats for kids!! Key is, you can come in and pick some yarn, crank out a hat and finish it off by hand and voila, in a matter of minutes you have made a hat. Or you can bring in your own worsted weight yarn and make it to donate, but unless you are donating the hat, don't even think about cranking on my new knitter!!! So the other thing is, this project is on hold till I get that schtinking basement cleaned, that is where my "Other" yarn stash is!!! Oh the secrets behind closed doors!!! I did start organizing, now it looks worse, so with coffee in hand, I go down the stairs, put my coffee cup on the steps and get a running start into the Mosh pit of cardboard boxes. Boxes filled with yarn are virtually indestructable? But all the totes fight back!! Well, I am going to get my coffee right now, and relax in the recliner and think about how I am going to tackle the Mosh pit below!!! By the way have a Happy and Blessed Easter!!!
