The Bikini Knitter

I know that I am not alone when I say that there are moments when I cannot stand my job. But, I have to say, my job frustration was put into check after watching "Ashley Paige-Bikini or Bust" on TLC. If you're not familiar with the show, Ashley Paige is a swimwear designer (is that the politically correct term?), and she has this ONE guy named Juan who makes bikinis by hand. BY HAND!!! And you know what? He loves his job. I mean , this guy sits in a little room all day long by himself and knits bikinis and he is soooo happy. Now, this shows me 2 things. #1--I am grateful that I have a job where I don't have to knit bikinis all day everyday. #2--I need to be happy with whatever I am doing job-wise.

I wonder how much a bikini knitter makes? LOL!

I think I would rather knit the whole bikini than hand sew individual beads all over the bikini. They should definitely make more than the knitter. :-)
