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.

It’s a windy, blustering day out

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on November 7, 2008

I stare out my window as the leaves are falling to the ground.  Fall is a nice season, I think it’s my favorite time of the year because you start to bundle up in wool sweaters.  It makes me nostalgic for the times I flew kites with my girlfriend Lissa in middle school.  We had an art project at school and made a huge dragon kite.  It didn’t fly well and crashed straight off, but then we tied the string to the cheap plastic kites you could buy for a dollar….. and they soared into the sky.  :)

Here’s some of the yarns I dyed early this week.  Hope you enjoy looking. 


Green, Brown and Teal                                        Red, Orange, Gold and Brown
