I made a couple stitch markers today

Why? Because Lolo and I will be at the Lancaster Market this Saturday from 7-1 selling hand dyed and hand spun yarn, knitted and handmade gift items AND...stitch markers!! If you're free, stop by and say hi (and maybe buy something?)

We will be joined by Jenn of 716knit, whose self striping yarns are so bright and awesome.

Hope to see you there!!!

I finished the shawl!!!!

Isn't it beautiful? Don't you love it? The pattern is now available. It's called Dancing Birds of Paradise and you can find it here.

In other news, I knit 2570 yards in July! Pretty amazing, huh? Well, not all of it was knitting, I did give some yarn away, but still, in coldsheeping, destashing counts. So far I've used up 11,562 yards, bringing my stash down to 27,370 yards. I think I can make my goal of hitting 15,000 yards before Rhinebeck in October!!

All in all, good news. We are both knitting/dyeing/crafting furiously to prepare for the craft table on the 27th, so clear your schedule to come visit us at the Lancaster Farmer's Market between 7 and 1. We'll have hand dyed and hand spun yarns along with knitted and hand made gift items. There will be something for everybody and hopefully it'll be lots of fun!
