I got paid to knit! I made 2 hats for one of the moms at the kids school and she gave me $40. I thought that was a bit much for 2 hats, but hey now I can buy some more yarn!! 🙂 I also got 2 more orders for hats. Pretty cool!
I started another baby blanket today for a guy that Joe works with his wife is due in May and the baby shower is in 2 weeks so I thought I would make a quick one and I must say it is going rather fast. I also finally sat down and started that damn clapotis! I am almost through the second section and I finally have the hang of it! I hope! There is not much else going on here just trying to get things back to normal as much as possible! I did watch Harry Potter last night and now I am going to have to get started on the Weasley soon! Maybe even another scarf if I can ever finish the one I have started!! Happy Knitting!!!!!!!!!

    That’s great! I always feel bad when people try to give me so much for knitting, but then I think about all the time and effort that went into making the item. Congrats.

    $40 is not too much for two hats…think of the time & care you put into them…

    That is excellent news about the hats, great stuff! Can’t wait to see some progress photos on your Clapotis. I think once you have the hang of the pattern it’s easy to work out where you are with it – only the stitches at the far ends of the rows “change” on the knit rows. Hope that makes sense LOL!
