Knit for a profit.

My aunt and grandmother came to visit again this weekend. Apparently they had just gone blueberry picking and they wanted to pawn a ton of tasty fruit off on us. I can't complain. Blueberries taste good sprinkled with turbinado sugar but I should probably make some muffins or pancakes or something.


My aunt was happy with the hats Kristen made for her craft fair. I guess she hasn't had the time to crochet enough to fill a booth and having knitted items would attract more people. I am trying to make a scarf to give her by the 21st. I figure that if I knit twelve inches a day I should be finished in less than a week. She gave us a lot of yarn that she has no use for to work with but it's all worsted weight. I'm using three strands together to make my scarf, in teal blue, burgundy and purplish heather. It looks more like a rug than a scarf. ^o^;...


I'm going to have to take a break from doll-rooting until my scarf is finished but I was rooting one of the SH-09 heads with strawberry pink layered over hot pink hair. The strawberry pink hair is from Volks and this is the first time in a while that I've used their rooting hair. Thank god they aren't using the reel kind any more!


I've been reading the first volume of Fruits Basket lately because reading manga in Japanese helps me more than anything, as long as I don't stop to look up the words I don't know until later. Now that I have all the volumes of Please Save My Earth I'm auditioning manga series. I'm trying out Fruits Basket and Koucha Ouji. Neither of them seem too bad. ^_^

Koucha Ouji is great. I finished the last volume a few months ago, a pity it's finished, but it was kind of a happy ending.

Now I remember, the first time I heard of it was from your website. ^____^

So far I've only managed to pick up Vol. 2 but I ordered Vol. 1 from jpqueen. They don't seem to have the rest of them (25 volumes?) but at least I can have them notify me when they get them again. I love buying used manga! I'm glad you like Koucha Ouji, because there seems to be a proliferation of bad manga out there. ^_^;....
