Craft Fair: Day 1

Today I learned

-there are at least 3 teenage knitters in O'Fallon who are frustrated that they can't get the "real stuff" without getting a ride over to St. Louis. One knitter, maybe 13 or 14, learned to knit 3 weeks ago and has already expressed a preference for the "good stuff". These kids made my day.

-that people love color even if they aren't knitters.

-that there is still a strong mentality that 88-cent worsted weight acrylic yarn is the best yarn for all yarn-related projects.

-that sometimes people express their sticker shock by bearing their teeth and recoiling in horror. I pretended these people were non-knitters.

-that sometimes people didn't know where to get better yarn and are delighted to find it at the craft show, even if they are a little bit shocked by the price.

-that Scott is almost done making my scarf. I can't wait to wear it.
