Saturday, or something Like it

Today is yard sale day chez Lizzie. I have nothing priced, or even sorted really, and I have no cash float and I have yet to open the front door and start chucking stuff out. I figure I can just wing it. Kate was just here with a large Timmie’s, Her weekend is filled with Fantastic Fun at the machine knitting guild shindig. I supplied her with several pretty little packs of roving to sell, drank the coffee and am now semi motivated to begin the day.
Time chez Lizzie has been sadly spent neglecting knitting and concentrating on pottery design. I have now reached the point where stuff can start to happen production wise, and I can pick up the needles again. Kate and I went road trippin to Harvey and maxed out the old bank account at Briggs and Little one more time. I rented some movies for the kids and started a bag. I am knitting B&L Country roving in sheep’s brown, goldenrod, and natural. I cannot believe how quickly it knits up!  I have done felted bags with it before, but mostly ones I dyed myself. It is nice to just use the commercial colours for a change. But then I found a rogue skein of fleece artist slubby that might look good in it too…
Sigh. Must get the ever so organized yard sale underway, wake up the grunt labour, uh I mean the kids and get this dog and pony show on the road.

I hope your yard sale is successful. I've only had one, and it was a lot of work. Take advantage of munchkin labour, as they grow up so quickly!

yard sale was ok ish. The boy made some cash, the girl made some cash and I have a lot of Crap to get rid of still.
The oddball stopped by post yarn snarking and shared a coctail with me.

I didn't bother going to the yard sale at Chez Lizzies because she told me ahead of time that she was NOT putting the cone of copper nicey-nicey I've coveted for a YEAR now into her yard sale. It was my version of the Nestle boycott.

I moved my daughter to her new apt on Fri and went to garage sales on Sat.
Got a whole lot of stuff she probabley doesn't want.
The linen tablecloths for $10.00 she may want, but not get!
