On unwelcome information

Or, why I hate my business planning class for freelancers. Okay, I don't really hate it, but I was cruising along in blissful innocence thinking I was making okay money and things were pretty good. I got a lot done in a day, I had some good clients, got paid on time, life was grand. And then the evil teacher made me actually crunch some numbers and analyze my finanical picture umpteen different ways (which is of course what I am paying him to do, but I digress) and I did it. And now I feel poor and lazy all at the same time. I spend a lot of time doing nothing, and I rely an awful lot on the same few clients to not starve. I needed to know these things. But I didn't really want to, if you get my drift. Anyway...
This is a close up of a WIP for a large yarn company. I love how it is coming out, but it is one of those projects where you keep crocheting and crocheting and crocheting and it doesn't seem like you are getting any closer to finished. And I screwed up and didn't order enough yarn, although they are being very nice about it and sending me more without complaint. I hope to have this baby done early next week.

And here is the lovely and talented BB modeling the 2 needle hat that I don't remember the name of from One Skein Wonders. I like the book, and this worked up very quickly for the Dulaan box in some leftover Lopi. You can't really see it in these photos but there is some very nice detailing in the decreases for the crown.

And speaking of boxes, I know some of you lost sleep after last June's TNNA wondering about the hair on those step dancers in the lobby. Where does it all come from?
The Irish Wig Lady of course! Here are two choices for the Kid's hair style for the rest of the season. Same style, two slightly different colors. We are torn as to which is the better choice so we will let the coach have the tie breaking vote. They came in the mail today, and I will mail back whichever one turns out to be second choice next week.

I can't fool around with this post anymore because for my next homework assignment I am noting how much time I spend each day on different activities. I can't really call this work-related, so I am off!

OMG--well, I think the step dancers were more fun than the Mary Kay ladies we had this time in San Diego!!!
