Last show of the year

Sunday's The Big Knit Show was my last show this year. I've had a very busy show year. Done more shows than ever this year. Wonderwool in April, Woolfest in June, FibreFest in Aug, FibreFlurry in Oct and The Big Knit Show. I've decided that's too much and won't be doing that many next year.

As The Big Knit Show came just two weeks after Fibre Flurry, Simon decided he really didn't want to do another show so quickly, so The Craftie Pixie helped me instead and her lovely son came and helped us carry everything up and down the stairs to/from the car at the beginning and end of the day. Thank you to both Pixie & Taryl for their help.
Our sock section.

The show was great. There was a good variety of stalls although I didn't get around to looking at them all. I taught an Easy Lace Class in the middle of the day too and had a lovely group of ladies in my class.
The Daisy Shawl on display. I'm teaching The Daisy Shawl by the way at The Cornwall Yarn Shop on Friday (this week) and on 13 December at Spin A Yarn. Contact respective shops to book if you're interested.

Here's the lace yarn

and Snow Queen:

and yes, I did give in to temptation and bought one skein of yarn. Yes, just one! I was very good.
This is beaded silk from Debonnaire.

I also got some small scales, perfect for weighing small amounts of yarn and beads.
I've been re-stocking the shop again and a lot of the yarn is now on sale. More to be added tomorrow. Check out the bargains.

It was a pleasure helping you out and Taryl says your very welcome :)

It was a fun but tiring day and I can see why you wouldn't want to do too many shows.

Looking forward to see what you make with that gorgeous yarn.
