And we're off!

Two sales in as many days on Etsy.  Don't I wish that was a sign of things to come?  It's thrilling and at the same time very nerve racking.  You never know if the purchaser is going to get the item and go, "Oh.  Ick."  Then ask for a full refund.  I suppose you just have to roll with it and hope for the best and have confidence in your product. 

Speaking of....  I dropped into Wal-Mart yesterday.  I needed a skein of black yarn from Red Heart and picked up two pretty skeins of a Bernat Premium in a lovely tan.  My Mother's hair stylist loved her scarf and in a round about way asked if she could get one, so Mom volunteered.  Doesn't it always work that way?  Anyway, while I was there I scanned the hooks and bought two plastic oversized ones.  I've never used them before so I was anxious to try them out.  What a neat stitch!!  Now I get how some of the crocheters make those wonderful oversized stitched items I so love.  I started a scarf and hope to have it finished up by the weekend.  Sorry, no photos yet.

Fofo, great idea about sketching my ideas.  I found an unused notebook and started it just for that idea.  Thanks! 

I was angry last night.  The new season of "JUSTIFIED" was on at 10.  I wanted so badly to stay awake for it, but by 9:30 I was nodding off on the couch and had to go to sleep.  The DH konked out  before me.  That has made my mind up to go ahead and get a DVR from Direct TV so we can tape it and then watch it whenever we want.  Love me some Timothy Olyphant!!

  1. I am glad it worked for you! I find that when I have stuff rolling around in my noggin it helps to sketch. We have a dvr from Dish and we love it. I like big crochet needles and I have a size Q. Can't wait to see what you make with them.

  2. Meant to post earlier that I am glad your selling is taking off. I'm sure that they will love what you make.

  3. congrats on the sales!
    I like going to Walmart for a quick yarn
