Tiring but fun weekend

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on February 8, 2009

I’m so glad it’s Sunday so I can rest! I’m beat. Well, the Janesville Knit-in was a blast. It was nicely organized and full of helpful people. I was a bit worried about getting into my first event as a vendor, but it went well. I really enjoyed talking to everyone that stopped by, it was a nice group of women. Everyone was very encouraging, so in hind sight, I wish I had gotten more sleep and worried less! I’ll have to remember that for next time. :) I brought more then enough things for people to peruse and made lots of sales, even talked to a few stores about wholesaleing and teaching so that was a nice bonus.

I’ve got to send a big thank you out to my friend Pat who helped me set up, thank you Pat, couldn’t have done it with out you. :) My parents showed up at the end and were able to see my booth, that was nice too. Thank you all for making it a good experience!


I should also thank my wonderful husband, Jim.  He had to stay home with Hans who had surgery on his knee last Tuesday.  We’ve started calling him  “Gimpy” :) 

Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the show.

Last night’s batch of dye

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on October 6, 2008

I stayed up last last night and dyed some yarn.  It turned out nice, and I just wanted to show it to someone.  :) thanks for understanding.

It makes me think of a green river on a topographic map, or green electricity.  Cool eh?
