Market results + a new project!

Sadly, the market didn't go too well - food proved to be the most popular option on the day! Here's what the stall looked like, all set up:

You can see my bags hanging up along the front, and my neck cozies are there too, on the table between the blue and pink bags. I was told that plenty of people picked them up and looked at them, even tried them on, but sadly none were bought.

Its not all bad news - it means I have plenty of stock for my shop! I'm going to take photos today and list them all, so watch out tomorrow for the link! Or you can become a member now to be the first to know when new things are listed.

I've taken a little break from all things crafty over the last few days, busy with other family and church things, but on Sunday afternoon the bug hit me again, and I found myself charting and swatching for a new scarf - with argyle patterning and a bit of lace thrown in...

It doesn't look like much at the moment, but its taken a while to figure out how its going to work - I ended up frogging it back to the start last night because I wasn't happy with it! The yarn is Patons Brushed Caressa 7ply, which i'm knitting on 5.5mm needles to make it airy and light. The design process has been fun so far. I'm away for a long weekend to stay with my mum (and go to New Zealand's biggest craft fair while i'm there!) so I should get alot more done on it during the 9.5hr train trip.

~Happy knitting!~

Colorful stall. Sorry you didn't get the results that you were looking for. If anything, you now have an inventory for your shop. Keep the momentum going and you shall see some results of your efforts. :)
