I have been a participant in our local market this summer! What a blast! It is such a great group of different venders! Here is how my booth looked one of the weeks:
Just a quick tip! If you want to dye your own wool rovings or pure wool yarns – this is the time to pick up CHEAP dyes!! Check out your local shops for their discounted Easter stuff! The color tablets from the DIY egg dying kits are ideal for wool dying!! They come with all sorts of other stickers and stuff – which can always be used somewhere! I just picked some up for 75% off – I hope there is some more when it hits 90% off!
So has anyone here been on www.ravelry.com ? Seriously addicting!
“Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration. The content here is all user- driven; we as a community make the site what it is. Ravelry is a great place for you to keep notes about your projects, see what other people are making, find the perfect pattern and connect with people who love to play with yarn from all over the world in our forums.”
So I checked it out a few times and felt overwhelmed at the hugeness of it all (kinda like my first few times on facebook!) But I went again and watched the helpful tutorial/how to use video and it didn’t seem so scary after all!
It is a great place to connect with other people in your area and across the world, who love the same things you do! I joined a group that meets at a local coffee shop every once and a while to knit! How cool it that??? VERY!!
One thing I love is that you can download patterns and when you are done you can share your finished project! Also when you find a pattern you like, you can view other peoples finished projects and read thier comments. What a great way to keep people connected through things that they love.
