A Little Bit of Random

I'm trying to stay more on top of updating the blog.  I give you no promises though!

Last weekend I was a vendor at the Vintage and Made Fair.  It was a good time - the weather was gorgeous and I was close to the live music, there were several nice vendors nearby that I met and got talking with and as you can see, the bathrooms weren't too far off which wasn't as bad as you'd think.

This was my first vendor gig that wasn't strictly a fiber event so it was a bit different. I got a lot of comments like "That is so pretty but I wish I knew what to do with it." and "I used to knit but I don't have time any more." or "I love your stuff and am so glad you're here" and then they'd walk away... I did meet a lot of new people though and was happy to let the kids (and adults) get their hands on the fibers. I take it for granted since I am surrounded by fiber and yarn these days but for a lot of people it was a first experience! They loved the big roving balls in the trunk - they were the hit of the weekend.

The other great thing about that weekend is since I wasn't busy the whole time I got some knitting done! I finished this cowl - Handbrake Cowl pattern using my handspun (the fiber was dyed by Gherkin's Bucket for her Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Club she did a few years back).

And I finished my first Halloweentown sock, started on the second, and I finished that pair of Fisherman's Mittens that I started earlier this year and sort of ignored for several months... I haven't taken any pics of those yet though. Nor have I taken pictures of the objects and scarves I made for the event. Maybe this week after school.

It's fundraising time once again (I told you this was a random post) and as part of the "pump it up" activities, students' names are drawn for a Principal Taxi Ride where the Principal drives them around the school with lights and songs blaring.  The students have gotten a big kick out of it and little man's name happened to be drawn the other day.

I'm pretty sure I forgot to add this picture to the post I put up about little miss' field trip.  I don't seem to upload pictures as often from my phone so this one wasn't on the computer when I posted...

That's it for now.  I have some sewing to do and the never-ending pile of laundry needs attending to.  Have a great week!
