Despite a beautiful day featuring sunny skies and cool breezes, the show was a bit of a bust.
We were there with all our pretty yarnAnd a nice assortment of my jewellryBut there was one small problem... there were no customers.... just vendors. At most I would say about 20 people who weren't associated with the show came through - and none of them were knitters.
I don't know if there was no advertising, or if it was just so nice everyone went elsewhere, but last year the show was bustling - this year was a shame.
But not all was lost. Both mom and I got a lot of knitting done. She completed the sock she was working on and I'm to the toe of Dad's second f-day sock.
And I got a visit from some of my most favourite people in the world - My bestie Samantha and her three adorable (if a little evil) children.(Not Miss Lily's real hair - she stole poor Roxy's wig!)
So, we came home with all the yarn we took - but that's good news for you guys... as the shop is back up and Mom will be adding some new colourways.
As for me - today I'm taking it easy. I've already spent a few hours reclining in the shade of my backyard, reading with the boys. Now it's time to knit and watch a movie - I think something historical is in order.
But before I go, here is a sneak peek at my soon to be released shawl pattern:
It's off the blocking board, so now it's just a matter of getting the pattern together.
