I went to the opening day of my local farmer's market this morning, wearing one of my handknit sweaters. As I wandered, I spied a booth displaying natural-fiber yarns. I made a beeline there shouting, "YARN!!!!" at the top of my lungs, of course! :woot:
There, I discovered a co-operative of women who were raising alpaca for fiber, but nary a knitter among them! (HOW is this possible, I ask you?!) I made what I was to find out was their very first purchase. And, as such, recieved a 50% discount FOR LIFE! :woohoo:
They admired the sweater I was wearing and asked if I had ever sold my knitting. I said that I typically knit for family and friends. They said that they could use a demo knitter during farmer's market and would I consider it. WOULD I?! :roflhard: OF COURSE, I WOULD!
They also said that they had a couple of gentlemen stopping by wanting to make a purchase, but had no one to knit for them, and would I consider freelancing my skills for those who needed a knitter. WOULD I?! :roflhard: OF COURSE, I WOULD!
And, oh by the way, each of the ladies really should have some kind of garment made from the yarn they sell to demonstrate its many uses. Would I consider doing that, too? WOULD I?! :roflhard: OF COURSE, I WOULD!
I had a really great morning!!!!!
