Hi Fellow Knitters,
Last week Ferg and I exhibited at the CraftAlive Show at the Old Bus Depot in Canberra. We chatted with existing customers and met new ones. We spent a chilly five days at the show and four snug nights in our caravan. The small blower heater does a wonderful job keeping us warm. Here are pictures of our stall.
This year is the last year for us taking our wares to shows. (Ferg is the roady and hefting boxes is getting too much for him.) We will be keeping our online store. At shows, we always sell some completed hand knitted pure wool rugs. Because we have only a few shows left to attend, we offered more than usual for sale at the Canberra show. We are happy that more SipKnitYarn rugs have gone to good homes.
The cold weather that has enveloped the eastern states, has created the perfect conditions for knitting and crocheting. I continue on with my Tulip blanket. I have finished the tulip motif so now it is full speed ahead with the easy-knit cables. I hope my version in ghost grey looks as great as this cream one shown in the pattern Tulips.The blanket certainly keeps my legs warm as I knit.
