I made a sale!

 blanket 2

The baby blanket I was commissioned to knit is finished, and I’m very happy with the results. The lace border was so fun to knit and makes the blanket just gorgeous. It really looks special. Now I am a weirdo who actually sometimes enjoys seaming (I find it meditative somehow) so I knit the border separately and then mattress stitched that sucker on. I gave it a final block, tried shaking out as much cat hair as possible (unavoidable if you live with a herd, like me), and wrapped it up for the customer.

Yes, customer. I’ve never sold a piece of my knitting before, so this was kind of exciting…and uncomfortable. I had no idea what to charge, so I left it up to her. I was perfectly ok with doing it ‘pro bono’ so to say, or maybe for a homemade meal (she’s a great cook), but she wasn’t having it. In the end, I think both parties are very happy with the transaction. I made a sale 🙂 That’s so neat to say!
