why i'm so busy

this needs to be a baby hat by 1 p.m. sunday afternoon. um, yeah. why do i do this to myself? can't i just buy a clever bib or onesie and call it good? when people know you as "the friend who knits" there is an expectation that you will, in fact, knit. i didn't use my time very well this week and here i am, scrambling to knit this teeny little thing on size 3s. it will be super cute, though. babies look extra cute in those little aviator caps. stay tuned!

you know what else? 
the leaves are turning, the christmas merchandise is sneaking into the stores and it's dark by dinnertime. hello fall. it's time for craft shows. a week from saturday is handmadeMN market - a new one for me. i will have my usual selection of soy votives, handspun and dyed yarns, scrap balls and spinning fiber available. october 22 at the ballentine vfw in minneapolis.

The textile center holiday show is coming up, too. this huge event features the work of textile artisans from all over the state. this is a fun shopping event starting in november and continuing through the end of the year. i'll be selling dyed yarn (sock through worsted weight) and handspun bulky. i have several new mohair-blend yarns for this sale. they're extra fuzzy and plush for holiday knits or gift giving. november 11-dec. 31 at the textile center in minneapolis.

and last, but not least, i am thrilled to be back at no-coast this year. check out these fab vendors. this is THE indie craft sale of the season. the venue, midtown global market, is amazing. so many awesome food choices there. bubble tea, tamales, tortas, fancy pastries, asian, caribbean, middle eastern - you name it! dec 2-3 at midtown global market in minneapolis.
