Ssshhhh!

Well over a month has gone by since I last posted anything, and what a month it’s been…

Dartford was great fun, met some very interesting people and we had a great fair I was tired but very pleased at the end of the day. Dursley was a little disappointing in contrast, but that’s the way the cards fall sometimes: you win some, you lose some. Again, all the people I met were lovely to a fault and it was in no way down to the organiser – it’s just how it goes on the day.

Next fair is at the end of next month, in Marlborough Town Hall. I’ve been knitting furiously as you can imagine, and have finished the cargo pants (just in time for Dursley after a marathon late night the very night before, and a lot of advice from my Mum, as I was trying another new technique out. It must have worked as they got some very favourable comments!) and a gorgeous sparkly grey and pink cardi. Hopefully someone’s attending a wedding soon with an adorable one-year old little girl: it’ll be perfect! I’ve also started a larger size of the cute red waistcoat, in two tones of blue. That one gets so many comments I thought it was worth knitting a larger size, just in case. Despite the cabling, it knits up really quickly and is very attractive and rewarding. Once that’s finished – hopefully by the end of next week – I have another project all lined up! I bought some gorgeous shades of Aran a week or two ago and am itching to knit something with it :)

Which all means that I’m well overdue loading some photos. I’ll have to try and get those done at the weekend…

Seeing how lovely the necklaces look on the miniature display busts, I had a bit of a necklace-making spree and bought some new display busts to set them out on. I then thought that they only look lovely if they can actually be seen – so bought some three-tier display stands too. We had a bit of a dry run and I like the overall effect, so am looking forward to giving it all a maiden voyage in Marlborough.

Last but by no means least – I’m meeting up with some friends at the weekend, who run a craft bakers in Yorkshire. They have an idea they want to run past me, so watch this space – I may have some news shortly…
