small bird goes to market

I joined the second storie} crew yesterday evening to have another go at the South Wedge Farmer's Market. I was the "featured artist" in August, but it rained cats and dogs and I wound up packing it in early. So they let me have a do-over! The weather couldn't have been more perfect and there's never a shortage of interesting people and goings-on in the South Wedge. All in all, it was a pleasant way to spend a Thursday evening. I plan on joining up with second storie} again on November 29th and 30th for their Indie Market. It sounds like it's going to be kind of a big deal.

Speaking of big deals...this is a milestone (of sorts) for me...Oh, I know, I know...Etsy hearts don't really mean anything...and you shouldn't base your Etsian self-worth on how many people "heart" you, but...a thousand?? Kinda cool for little old me.

Time to sit is time to knit, so I did work on a sleeve of Assemblage while I was at the market. I did have two sleeves almost finished, but I had to rip one out. I think with all my stopping and starting and piecing together of this cardigan, I accidentally used the wrong needle size for one of my sleeves. Boo. So Assemblage is coming along...but slowly.

A thousand hearts, what fun! Looking forward to seeing Assemblage done. I hope it's a knock out success after all that knitting!

it was so great spending the afternoon with you - even if we didn't get many chances to talk! and if our next second storie event is a big deal it will only be because of fantastic vendors like you! i simply can't wait...
