Hey Friends! So as you may have noticed things have been a little on the slow side this month - both on the blog, social media, and on the knitting front. Why? Well, two reasons. Reason one: I've decided to partake in my second Fibrations event as a vendor! So exciting and yet so stressful!! This year I'll be sharing a booth with my lovely friend, Arika. She's going to be bringing along some hand knitted items as well as a selection of Ark and Ginger blankets!
I had so much fun at the last Fibrations that I was a vendor at that I decided that I just had to do it again this year! Even if I don't sell a single bag, it's just inspiring to be surrounded by a community of fibre enthusiasts, and I love meeting and talking to people who I only come across online. Not to mention that I always have a good laugh with Arika around!
BUT...reason two as to why it's been oh so quiet (and stressful) around here: my CTS flared up again in both hands and this summer heat just exacerbates the pain and swelling. Also, I messed up some muscles in one of my shoulders that prevented me from being able to lift my hand/arm above waist level. I have no idea what I did (although I think it's most likely this is an injury from horsing around with the Kiddo), which is annoying because then I can't avoid doing what it is that's causing this pain to happen. All I can do at this point is take deep breaths and shake my head at myself.
So...because of all this, I will be bringing a really small selection of small zippered box bags and drawstring bags, a handful of large zippered box bags, and a new item that I'm adding to the product line and to the shop in the fall: sock WIP holders!! They're great for both Magic Loop on a circular needle and DPNs!
Which brings me to the prize I've donated for the Toonie ($2) Fundraising Raffle:
That there is a large zippered box bag with a matching sock WIP holder in a print that I've been hoarding and wanting to keep for myself but finally had the guts to cut into, Field Study by Anna Maria Horner.
You can win this set for just TWO dollars!! Wouldn't you want to win this set? I just hope that I remembered to set aside some fabric to make myself a bag!
So if you live in the area, or if you're planning on visiting the island on August 21st, or you're going to be in the 'hood anyways, I hope you will check out Fibrations. Please note that admission is free!! If you do make your way over, I hope you will stop by my booth and say hi!
