The Fibre Shindig on Saturday was such a great time! My neighbours, The Wacky Windmill and EllSpins, were fun and the people that stopped by my booth were amazing. I was dazzled by the other vendors (The Wacky Windmill has such beautiful yarn and the other yarn vendors were such high quality!) and seeing so many people that shared my love for fibre warmed my heart. I got to peek at many a phone to admire project photos, and talk about my favourite things: buttons, clay, and yarn. Today, I have market-hangover. I’ve rewarded myself with a day of knitting in pajamas and I’ve finished a pair of socks just in time for them to take the edge off the chilly autumn mornings. The pattern is “Salmon Eyes” by Heather Pfiefer. It was a fun knit, and the fit is perfect. Tomorrow, I get back into the studio to make more beauties for the upcoming Calgary Fibre Arts Fair on November 7 in Parkdale. Today, I knit.
I’ll be at The Fibre Shindig in Calgary, Alberta on Saturday! I’ll have buttons, diz, bookmarks, whisky tumblers, leaf necklaces, and a very limited collection of large yarn bowls. The show has knitting, spinning, fibre, fine art, embroidery, knit and crochet wearables, jewelry, craft tools, and accessories.
