My mother owns a small business and when I first started knitting I put some scarves in the retail section of her business for sale. This week I sold the very first scarf I ever made for $30. It was a Paton's Bohemian in copper (I think) held with a strand of red fun fur. It was very narrow and very long and I thought it was very funky looking. I loved that scarf and often thought of keeping it, but none of my coats matched it. I am also over the fun fur phenomenon. So, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was sold. Hopefully the buyer is enjoying it!

My friend and I met up and I got her started on her Booga Bag. She is doing the bottom and handles in a blue Lamb's Pride and the body in Noro Kureon (sp?) that has lots of blues and purples. I taught her the cable cast on and she is hoping to have the bottom done by Thursday when I will see her. Then, I can show her how to pick up stitches and do the i-cord.

I've been knitting a bit on my Sock Candy Toe Up Sock. Before I go into work today I want to plug away on my Gelato Bag that I ripped out while watching my DVRed shows.

The week after next my husband and I are taking a week off from work to do some home improvement projects. I'm not in love with doing home improvement projects, but I LOVE the results. Most of the work is in the master bathroom and kitchen. My husband wants to paint the master bath, but I think we should wait until spring when we can have the windows open. I hate the idea of living and sleeping in the fumes. We will see!!

Ugh. Home improvement. Best of luck with that. Like you, I love the results, but the actual work of home improvement makes me grumpy.

Congratulations! Don't you just love the Booga Bag pattern?
