I Want to Knit

Friday, after the fact
(actually being posted on Feb 21 'cus I was too busy/lazy to post on time)

Today was fun! On my lunch break I went over to the pet accessories store to bring in the 2 commissioned dog sweaters. I was very proud of my work, had made them exactly custom to size to fit the dogs' measurements, and had even prepared a little pattern and price list. I gave in the sweaters and she seemed to really like them! She paid me for them and even gave me another order! I went back to work very happy. I've sold the crocheted pig, but this was my first knitting sale, and I got exactly the price I asked for them.

We weren't supposed to be seeing Julie and Rich tonight because we got together (well, with Julie anyways) last Friday, but they called on their way in and asked if we'd like to join them for supper, so we went. I was able to squeeze in a few rows of reinforced heel before leaving, none afterwards 'cus we got home too late.

I LOVE the reinforced heel! When I'd done Yannick's socks I just did stockinette st for the heel, which looks nice but can wear out faster. The reinforced heel is so easy, just doing k1, sl1 for the k row and still purling the p row, but it creates such a nice, almost quilted fabric! I will definately be doing this from now on, all thanks to Nicole (my knitting teacher) who showed it to us on Monday.

And to "Creative Genius?" from the comments (sorry I don't know your name):
I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who plays with time! The way I see it, not many people probably read my blog on a daily basis, so I'm not really messing anyone up! :)

And to Michelle from the comments:
Thanks for the cyberhug! It was really appreciated! :]
