twice in one day

hi... i am very pleased with myself today.... i sold my first handspun shawl.... i make lots and give away lots, but today i sold one...the Wool Peddlar's shawl...Isobel and i made one the same time...couple of years ago, i always liked it so didn't give it away... but today it was time, and it was the right person, someone i knew, who would appreciate the work that went into it..and of course i FORGOT my camera so i couldn't even take a picture of it on her to show you... but take my word for it, it suited her, she is a blond who wears lots of browns, and the shawl was made out of merino and silk, in Raspberry....looked really good on her.... of course i was pleased with what i asked, but of course price didn't pay for my time... works out to less than 5 bucks an hour.... I had just been thinking i should make another one, out of Andrea's cherry red...make it a true Wool Peddlar's shawl... or maybe i will make one out of Shetland and dye red.... see ya later..........
