man oh man did i ever have a fantastic time!!
already, i can't wait for next year! i always love the market atmosphere, and this was my first outdoor market.
the weather was perfect. it was a little chilly in the morning, and a tad windy, but the rain held off, and really that's the best news at an outdoor fibre festival! and then later in the day the sun came out and just ended the day beautifully.
i haven't done a ton of markets, but i'm always excited by how my display evolves. and this time, i added a bunting that was more at eye level. definitely a good choice. i love how it brings the booth all together. a huge thanks goes out to my hubby who looked after the stand for me. i had enough on my plate filling the table ;)
this table was a bit smaller than the ones i've done in the past too, but i bought it. and boy am i happy i did! i know i'll always have a table now. and really. i like this size :)
i really thoroughly enjoyed myself at this event. and i finally had a chance to meet people (actually face to face) that i've been friends with online for quite some time! (ahemmisocraftyahem) ;).. honestly, it was so great to meet, and see so many of you! i even had a quick chance to look around, and i finally snagged a skein of everything old lively in the crab apple jelly colourway. it's so squishy, and lovely. don't you just love the colour?!
i do wish i took more photos though. sigh, next year though :) all in all, i kept fairly busy, and am busy even now as i have a few custom orders to fill! how exciting :)
i feel like i'm definitely off to a great start into the fall and winter busy crazy knitting season. this week my goal is to apply to more markets. yah, i love them that much! it's tiring, and crazy busy, and at the end of the day, you're totally beat. but i love it. it's just fun. and i wore a silly stupid grin on my face all.day.long.
admit it, you would have too... if you were surrounded by all of that yarny goodness! xo
are you getting all geared up for the fall and winter knitting season? what are you most looking forward to knit with the cooler weather just around the corner? xo
