Any other Sunday

Buttontree Lane and Fibrewebs stall
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.

  1. Nice yarn Michelle - and lovely project sacks! I was sort of hoping you might have a few left over to sell on etsy...

  3. I can't believe you didn't sell all your bags! What were people doing?! Glad you had a better time of it than last time in terms of the temperature though.

    The yarn you bought from Carrie as well as the other yarn you're going to turn into beanies are all such lovely colours. :)

  4. I'm glad the markets went well (and am quietly glad that I may be able to snaffle a project sack soon).

    Good luck with the beanie making, the yarn looks lovely and smooshy!

  7. Wonderful for you to have such a good day. The yarn is beyond amazing, I am hoping to get my hands on some loveliness at Bendigo this weekend. Photos of the high speed hats would be great too hint, hint!

  8. The display looks amazing. I love the way you have co-ordinated the colours in all of the products. An artwork in itself!!

  10. Hi Michelle,

    I had a lovely time stopping by your stall on Sunday, and I really love my elephant bag. I'm also thinking about making a lovely shawl with the silk I bought from Carrie.
