A Designer Now?!

Well, I had some interesting news today!  A lady I made a scarf for as a thank-you present called me to ask if the design is original to me, and when I told her "Yes", I was informed that she would like to purchase the design from me!   I was absolutely flabbergasted  to say the least!   All I could do was stutter a few words here and there.  I was sooooo not expecting that!  Woohoo!  I guess I just sold my first design today!  :D 

I finished my first scarf knitted in the round AND did three-needle bind-off to finish it!  I was amazed.  It actually looks pretty decent for a first time effort!  I even decided to make a matching hat.  That's all done also except for the final seaming.  That turned out pretty good, too.  I'll get a picture of it posted soon.  One thing I did learn about the differences between knitting and crocheting - it's easier to work with, carry up, and secure different colors within one project doing crochet than knitting!  Maybe I just need to learn a few tricks of the (knitting) trade to change my opinion of that, but so far, I think I'll stay with the hook, and dabble with the needles! ;)

Have a good night! :)
