With apologies for not taking more pictures before I brought them to Peggy.

Ruffle scarves! And while I sold them to Peggy for $10 each, she's selling them to customers for $20 each! I'm not getting the best deal here, but at least I'm learning what my stuff will sell for.

That'll be good to know for when I have enough product (and funds) for a craft fair booth!

Hai. Not dead, and not moved on to other hobbies.

Just a big move, that's all.

We left Alaska the Friday before last and arrived in Syracuse on Saturday afternoon (or morning...I was pretty out of it after all that flying and layover-ing), and we've been at Fort Drum, NY now for about a week and a half. There are some things I'm really liking and a bunch of stuff that's really irksome (but I'll save that for my new-ish new home blog, Army Issue Crackerbox).

And I've been doing a lot of crocheting lately. There's a booth at the PX of knitted and crocheted goods and I talked to the lady who runs it about selling my stuff there. We decided that I would "wholesale" stuff to her instead of waiting for a sale and then her and the PX getting their 20% each commission. I'm making less money this way but I am still making a profit, and with all we're having to pay for out of pocket here every little bit helps. I'll post pictures sometime this week or next week.
