The temperature did not rise above 43 degrees F during my sale yesterday. I ended up layered in hand-knits. It took a bit of digging to locate my knitted items because it was summer a week ago!
The sale did not go as well as I hoped. It started out great when two women bought $84-worth of wool yarns, leaving me with this on the yarn table:
The whole box of acrylics sold later. What didn't sell were the rubber stamps, and I had really great stamps for sale! I didn't sell a single set of Stampin' Up stamps (which are top of the line, for those of you who do not stamp). In five hours I made about $140. Not terrible, but not great, either.
I did not knit after shutting down the sale. I napped, which is very unusual for me. I think the cold wore me out!
Friday's dinner went really well. The other family I invited is vegan so I made Ratatouille and my friend made a bean dish. My mom brought fruit salad and brownies. I think everyone had a good time. For the Ratatouille I pulled out the original Moosewood Cookbook. I have to say that the result was disappointing. Vegetarian cooking has gotten a lot better since the 1970s.
I'm going to brave another cold morning today to get some exercise, biking with a couple friends. Then I need to buckle down and do some work that I brought home from school. Almost time for another week!
