last week as i readied myself for my annual craft faire at the north columbia school house i realized my spinning fibers were lacking in certain spectrums of the color wheel. i needed to dye up some new colors.i dyed about 8 new rovings. i think these two rovings would be awesome plied together.some of my new favorite knits for the sale are this baby sweater made from "JAZZ" yarn-50%alpaca 50% wool:this child size hat made from my handspun-i wish it fit me. i so love the colors.and this baby bonnet also knit from my handspun. the colors were inspired by the robes of tibetan monks.i still have this chartreuse baby sweater- the people who love it don't have kids. i knitted some baby socks that are too cute with it.
my friend and neighbor rhodie shared a booth with me this year. it was nice to have someone to sit with. here's our booth. rhodie is sitting there pricing her felted hats.

well, the sale for me was slow this year. economy? i don't know. no baby sweaters sold. it was the smaller stuff....baby socks and dishclothes. wish i'd made more of those. oh well. might have to focus on lower priced items next year. i'm going to be selling my rovings and yarn at meadowfarm yarn studio and i hope to get my etsy shop updated too.
now i have to get busy with holiday gifts. sneaks up on me every year!
