So I knitted 2 baby hats, I have 2 nieces that are having babies. This past weekend there was a family reunion OH PERFECT. I can give the hats, but first I'd like to show mom my handy work.
Bad move, there's a consignment shop by her house that is desparately looking for baby items. When I showed her the hats her first statement was can I sell them. Umm, errr, ah well I suppose. Of course this was followed by how much should I ask for them. I have no idea, we settled on 10.00 each, then I calculated the cost of the yarn that was 11.00 each. So net loss of 1 buck plus nothing for the time it took to make them. Good thing they were the first 2 with "design elements" so I'll never see them again.
And now I know what to do with all that scrap sock yarn baby slippers!!!!!
