It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Shows Over & Works in Progress

Wow!  We have been at the Show all week and it has been Crazy…but in a good way.  This after all our bread & butter so just about everything else gets put on hold….gulp…..even knitting!  Although I myself don’t work on the sales staff, I run…for paperwork, coffee, to straighten trailers, to clean up spills, restock brochures…what ever is needed. This year, the show organizers chose to shorten the show length from 10 days to 5 so we had no idea what to expect  as far as traffic is concerned but, it has been PACKED!!

Fast forward to 3 days later……..

The shows over & everything back on the lot.  We have some wonderful friends & customers who saved us a LOT of time by showing up & towing everything back!  Friends that volunteer & show up when you need them are more than friends! Now just to get everything delivered!

The knitting has been slow, but I do have some works in progress.   I’m almost done with the “purplish” longies. I misjudged my yardage so they will probably be Capri's.  Oh well, summers coming…..someday right?

I just finished these medium longies.  I got a little scrap happy trying to use up some small bits of stash and striped the legs

new long 002

I have about 200 ends to weave in (or so it seems) & they should be listed  to Etsy tomorrow. 

I re-skeined one of my new babies

4oz 040

I can’t wait to see how it will knit up  I’m thinking of trimming it in the blue or brown…just can’t decide!  Maybe Board shorts with a pocket?


  1. Oh, I love the colors of your 'new baby' Katie!

    I am glad the show went so well. :)


  2. That blue really pops! Sounds like you need to put your feet up and relax for a few minutes!


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
