Colour explosion

Someone give me a bed. I'm SO tired. I've done a craft fair today. It was pretty much a waste of time money wise. Only sold a few things and mainly to the other stall holders. But it was great fun from a social point of view. Some gorgeous crafts represented and what a load of talented people. I chatted to several people and everyone there were lovely. We all sold very little and some people sold nothing at all. Unfortunately the event hadn't been very well advertised.

Here are some photos of my table. I alteered it a bit though after I took the pics.

Pins Vanessa made. She made a Norwegian Flag one for me and she has two English Flags in this lot. She also makes Cornish Flags.

I've just been listing the last few days dyeing results on Etsy. There's lots of sock yarn and some aran in gorgeous pastel shades. the sock yarns are rather brighter. The worsted comes with a free felted bag pattern now. That applies to all the worsted skeisn, even those who haven't had the free pattern added yet. I'm just too tired to do any more now. Here's the free bag pattern. It's one of my old patterns 'Mini Maddie'. I've altered it slightly and knitted it up in the merino worsted. It's gorgeous and it felts so easily. If you order a skein of worsted, the pattern will be e-maield to you.

All orders received tonight, I'll try to get in the post tomorrow morning before leaving for Norway and I'll e-mail off any pattern orders tomorrow too. Any orders received from Monday to Wednesday will be sent out on Thursday as I'll be in Norway then for my Gran's funeral on Wednesday. Off to pack now and then an early night. Oh, and have to decide which knitting to take. Got a long train journey tomorrow. although I may just sleep all the way to London.

Here are some of my favourite yarns from tonights update:

Toffee apple:


Banoffee Pie:



And here is a brand new felted bag. finished yesterday. Got lots of compliments today. It's huge and it will become a pattern soon, need some more work first.

Your stall looked lovely Anni, but sorry to hear the fair wasn't too successful. Your yarns look gorgeous as ever. Will be thinking of you this week *hugs and prayers*

I have had that problem with local craft fair things, they are just not worth going to, all mine were full of ladies of a certain age, saying in front of me as if I weren't there " nobody knits with wool anymore, and how much "

I have nominated you for a rocking girl blogger award, please see my blog

Hope the pace of the roller coaster has slowed enough to make it a fun ride again! Your stall looks great, Anni, and LOOK at those yarns! I hear Etsy calling ...
