Haven't Seen One of These in a While

This is what I saw this morning when I looked out of the window. I cannot remember when the last time was that I saw one of these. My friend Carla recently saw a walking stick. Haven't seen one of those lately either. Wonder if it is a sign of an early weather change. I understand that we are supposed to be getting some much cooler temps next week.

The weather change makes me want to knit me some more wool socks. I have a couple of other things to finish before I get started on them. I was out with friends the other night for a drink and happened to have some sock knitting with me while I waited for the rest to come. One of the girls asked if I ever made socks to sell. My immediate answer was NO. She indicated that if I was ever inclined that she would like a pair. I had made a pair for one of the other friends I am closer with and saw them and really liked them. When I explained that she could not afford to buy them and what I would charge if I did sell them I think she changed her mind.

Besides, knitting things to sell takes the fun out of it. If you sell people expect to get the piece when they want it rather than when I get ready to give it too them. I cannot stand the pressure.

I feel the exact same way about selling things I make. Missed seeing you this week. Maybe we'll get together again soon.
