new Little Man sweater
Went to my friend Danielle's today for a cookout. Had a good time. Hamburgs and hot dogs--YUM!!! She gave me a bag of knitting and crochet magazines. There were some I did not have so I kept them. I put the rest in a bag to take to Knit Night.
I'm working on a baby sweater and pocketbook slippers. I have one slipper done and started the second. I am doing a black pair but my sister said to use colors. The pink pair I made her gets lots of compliments every time she wears them. She lives in Maine so they get a lot of use.
If I don't burn out, I'll have a decent inventory for a Fall craft fair! Almost forgot, made 3 pair of fingerless mitts. Was not crazy about them so will use my own made up pattern instead.
I am keeping the Etsy stuff separate from the fair things. Made a black and white pair of Princess Frou Frou booties. Love how they came out! The black fur looks great! No photo yet. Made 3 pair booties yesterday. Love making them!
Started checking out fair venues. Most are hundreds of dollars! Plus you need liability insurance which adds a hundred bucks to that! Will need to build up much more inventory to do a show like these!
