Wow it's the middle of December already!

Where has the time gone? I seem to have gone from knitting manically for the craft fair to suddenly realising that I'd barely started my Christmas knitting. Anyhow enough of that later, so much has happened over the last couple of weeks but I guess I'd better start where I left off... at the craft fair.

I knitted, felted and dyed like a demon and made it to the craft fair despite the last minute intervention of a puking mighty midget. There we were, mum and I, (with the still poorly mighty midget in tow) unloading the car. We went inside to set up the stall and realised that we'd left most of the bags I'd made at home in a box on the dining room table. So, it was back in the car for me and a last minute dash home to collect them. All was set, we were ready for the off. Which to be honest, never really happened.

Talk about a damp squib, especially after all the stress and the panic beforehand. I don't think I have ever been to such a quiet event in all my life. Still, we stuck it out and made it to the end and sold a couple of bits. Covered the cost of the table but not a lot more. So, lesson learned, don't rely on the organisers to publicise an event, you need to do some shameless self promotion as well.

So anyhow, I still have several bags left and some rather lovely yarns too. I've already got plans for a couple of the yarns once the Christmas knits are out of the way but I think several of them might make it as far as Etsy in the New Year.

Here's a little taster.

I've been wondering how the craft fair went! So sorry to hear the organisers didn't put more effort in a bit of PR. The bags and yarn look fab, and good luck with selling any of that on Etsy!
