What can I say? It was amazing! I had so much wonderful fun, chatting to such lovely people, I never ever get tired of chatting away to customers, seeing their wonderful projects, and just enjoying their pleasure at being in such an inspiring place. The knitting and stitching show is just magical, you drive up to the show amongst the beautiful autumn trees, and potential of all the beautiful yarns and projects, its just perfect. Thankfully I was feeling autumny in my last dyeing session so there was a tonne of autumny colours.
I met so many people, I would love to list them all, but I'll be here for ages. The other thing I love is the friendships between stall holders, ever though many of us are sort of competitors, it never feels that way, we chat, help each other and do lots of lovely swapsies!! he he. Oh by the way, just wanted to say thanks to my little helper, you were a star, especially looking after me so well!!!!
OK, so you wanted to see my hair so I'll show you with a pic of my stand, which I have to say was unbelievably tiny, people were fighting to get in, so I'll have a bigger one next time, lol.
I changed my stand around about 4 thousand times, I think this was the first way around, lol. Lots of people didn't recognise me which was hilarious, I do look a little different, I need to change my photo on my blog now!
I did accidently make a couple of purchases, especially when I saw that cherry tree hill had 20% off on the last day, I bought a skein of sock yarn in colours I wouldn't normally go for, I need to challenge my knitting with different colours:
Then I went to check out Socktopus and accidently purchased a scrummy skein of fleece artist, totally in my fav colours, I had to start it immediately:
OK, so what else do I have for you today?
Well, shop will be updated again later with all the treats, plus we have a tonne of new brooches, some of which I don't think will get in the shop, seeing as Carmen is trying them all on with her outfits!
Oh I have to post this photo, when we were getting all the stock ready we had rather alot of wool everywhere, Guapita decided that she had to find somewhere safe to sit seeing as there was no carpet, and she might get packed in a box!
