Any other Sunday
Another fun Sunday market with Carrie. It was almost as insane as the Celebration of Wool Day, but it was also warmer which made this full-o'-headcold little red-nosed duck a happy camper!
When it came to snaffling some of my own Fibrewebs yarn, I played it smart. At the May market I held off buying Carrie's yarn, hoping it wouldn't sell and I could have it at the end of the day. She ended up with about 4 skeins of yarn left over after that market, and I never got my favourites, so this time I took advantage of our early start and got in quick!
I also picked up some Glenora silk/alpaca cobweb, and some red Wensleydale aran weight for a hat (possibly a very itchy hat).
So it was another great market day, and now I have the job of putting a few bags that didn't sell onto Etsy in the next day or so. There will be a couple of project sacks in that batch, but I will be making more soon to make a few of you out-of-towners happy.
My most pressing priority for the next two weeks is to do something with these.
I am headed to Central Australia at the end of the month with several friends, and when we decided to go at the beginning of the year I told them all I would crochet them new beanies. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute, but I've never denied that Procrastination was my middle name.
