My day at the market

When I woke up this morning it was torrential rain...
So I went to Devonport Craft Market with very low expectations on sales
but a good day, socialising with all my crafty friends.

But to my big surprise I had good sales! And I got an order.
And some Devo friends dared the rain and came around.
So I have had a great day today!
Now I’m gonna put my feet up with a cuppa.

50g balls of Happy-go-knitty hand-dyed cotton yarn

And 5g balls to add some stripes. Or for decoration.
I have had customers buying them simply because they’re cute!

Why not buy a beanie kit and make your own beanie?

Soft and warm merino/alpaca cuffs

To market

I’m doing the Devonport Craft Market tomorrow.
It’ll be the first time I bring my hand-dyed cotton yarn, so that will be interesting.

Oh, and I'm featured as “Meet the seller” on their blog
so if you want to know a little bit more about me, click here.

I have made some new merino cuffs.
The beads on the 3rd pair are blue but it doesn’t show in this photo...

I hope to have finished this pair too...

I have bought alpaca yarn from some alpaca breeders outside Christchurch.
It’s 80% alpaca and 20% wool which makes it strong but still really soft and nice.
I have to use 2mm needles though to make the cuffs tight enough, so it’s quite fiddly...
