Success

I had my final beginning knitting class at Atelier Marin this Saturday. This hat is the only thing I've ever made that isn't a long strip of stitches. I love how the top turned out, with the color in a ring. I've really been loving the knitting class and I've signed up for another round. Next I'll be making a hooded scarf from this gorgeous and super soft alpaca. I chose a pretty hard pattern, hope I can do it.
My other success story for the day is my first successful trip to the thrift store in a long time. I found some really great old pillow cases in the linen section, all were 50% off too. YAY!!! This is just a sample of my good fortune.

In other good news, I sold two monkey items to a repeat customer, have 2 custom orders to work on and found this fabric shop, thanks to my swap partner Tamy. Have a great week.
