What a Haul!

I went crazy for some yarn, which arrived last week. It's the first time I've ever placed such a large order. I think I received some 20 skeins of various yarns. Oh, I love that!

I decided I was going to try to knit for profit. I don't know how it's going to work out, but it will be fun trying. I'm going to start off simple making some neat-o scarves, ranging from the sporty and silly frou-frou to the sophisticated. The corporate headquarters where I work (for a certain bookstore chain located in Ann Arbor) has held a craft sale for employees to sell their wares in November of the past few years. I thought it would be as good a place as any to gauge potential interest in what I can do.

You can see two of the scarves I've already started. The blue variegated one is in this fantastically soft and cuddly totally synthetic polyester. The olive scarf on the right is a wool-nylon blend (the nylon comprising the charming lighter green eyelashes that wave all about).

I may decide that I prefer to knit only for myself and for the occasional gift, but right now I'm having too much fun buying yarn almost indiscriminately.
