When we were on holidays in Coeur d'Alene this summer, I stopped in at a local coffee house to get my caffeine fix. Mmmmm, Americano. I got more than a coffee that day, I came out with an IDEA.
At the cash register, they had set out a fishbowl full of coffee cozies. Many places have adopted the use of a cardboard sleeve to protect the hands of coffee drinkers. This place had these cardboard ones, but their fishbowl was full of crocheted ones for sale as well..for a whopping $5 each. I thought it was a great idea so I approached the owner of Favourite Corner #6 to see if she would be interested. We decided that she would give them away as Christmas gifts to her regular customers. I'm going to make them and sell them to her for a very modest project (she insisted). I'm so excited. I feel a bit 'entrepreneurish'. Of course Javier points out that I would actually have to make money to be a true businesswomen, but I'm excited about the whole venture.
Today all the yarn arrived in these glorious colours of green, red, blue, and purple. I could have jumped in the box and rolled around it in like a cat.
