I haven't blogged about my knitting lately, not because I haven't been doing any I've done lots but it's all a bit samey. I have a stall at a craft fair on Saturday, this is part of a local music festival and a bit of a new venture for me as previously I've only sold at our village market. This coming fair seems a bit more serious, for a start it's a much longer event, practically all day, apart from Lesley of Silver Raindrops Jewellery I won't know anyone and I'm not convinced June is the best time for selling socks.Here's my bag of items ready to go. As well as lots of plain socks in various sizes and colours I also have a few scarves and I've made a variety of fingerless gloves simply because I was asked for these at my last sale. These are my own invention, simply a tube of 64 stitches, with a small thumb. I'll make a few more pairs before the weekend and that's me ready for business. As I said it's all a bit dull but once the sale is over I have a new baby to knit for, a blanket to make for the village show and the socks I'm wearing today have developed a hole but I hope there might be a pair left over for me on Saturday.
