I have a few fairs and markets coming up in the next few weeks so have been busy over the last few months making a variety of stock.
Apparently the weathermen have forecast a cold winter here in the UK so now would be an ideal time to buy your winter woollies.
The weather forecasters say that the weather is about to turn cooler. I’m hoping that this will mean my scarves will sell well, if not to keep people warm but maybe for Christmas presents 😄
Over the last few weeks I’ve been busy knitting, crocheting and sewing all sorts for my stall at the fairs and markets that I sell at.
Here are a few photos of what I’ve been making.
Crocheted flowers in a new colour
A shawlette/scarf in a new colour
A couple of linen cushions with a crocheted cotton motif
Here in the UK the weather has been lovely and warm.
I decided to make myself a cool loose cotton top but couldn’t stop at one!
This was the first that I made with a Rowan fabric designed by Kaffe Fassett. I just used purchased bias binding to hem the neck and armholes. I had to put some darts at the back of the neck because I had adapted the pattern from a dress pattern and made this top a wee bit too wide!
This is the second that I made (slightly narrower so no need for any darts!) I decided to make my own bias binding for this one.
I bought the fabric from a quilting shop in the market town that my sister lives in (I stayed with her last week)
The third (yes 3!) one is made from fabric that I could not resist when I saw it at the market that I traded at last weekend!
I decided not only to make my own bias binding for this one but to also add a bit of decoration at the front.
The buttons I already had in my cupboard for part of my “yarny” creations.
Here’s hoping that I get the weather to wear them now😄
The results of the last few weeks knitting and crocheting. All ready for the Farmers Market next Saturday at the Black Swan Pub at Hollins Green (just over the toll bridge)
To complete this cardi!!!! I finished it ages ago and have actually been wearing it without buttons because I couldn’t wait until I found the right buttons! In the end I went for matching ones :-)
These have been popular so I have had to crochet a few more for Saturdays market.
I’ve recently become rather addicted to knitting socks and consequently have indulged in lots of lovely hand dyed sock wool!
This is the most recent pair that I have made (3 others have been made in almost as many weeks)!
I’ve been busy with this, along with a couple of other projects!!!!
