Breaking all records





So as August 2009 is almost at an end. I'm happy to say, what a record breaking month that was. Sales exceeded 100 from etsy and other hosting sites, with 25 ponchos,20 shrugs, 19 cardigans, headbands, hats, gloves and collars flying off my needles at lightning speed. How I've managed to knit everything I really don't know. I think perhaps fairy dust was sprinkled on my needles.
I've spent a record amount on yarn, and my stash is currently bursting out of every spare crevice of my little flat. for the first time in 4 weeks, my to do list is below 6 items to knit. most days it's been as long as my arm.
Once these 5 parcels go off in the post this afternoon, I have just 3 orders to complete. But the pressure isn't off, I have a huge fayre to do on Monday in Stratford upon Avon. so Saturday and Sunday will see me knitting up stock to sell off the peg.
So a little shout out to the planets, spirits, and karma that brought me such a challenge this august I hope I lived up to their expectations. :-)

No BBB my fingers are surprisingly ok, but I'm surprised how much a body can ache from just sitting down and knitting. :-)

good help me if I ever did a marathon run.

AMI don't say that, OMG, Mind you I think i've peaked. :-)
It's going to take some kind of miracle to beat this record.
