We had a wonderful time at SPA. The weekend was a lot of work, but we did manage to squeeze in time for knitting and relaxing. Neither of us planned to bring our wheels, and it's a good thing - the van was packed.
We spent Friday afternoon setting up our booth for the opening of the market that evening. Over the course of a year our booth has undergone many changes. Currently it looks like this.
Being on the end the Luster Sox got plenty of petting.
SPA was the debut for our Build a Kit station. Choose the mitt or neck warmer pattern of your choice, select the yarn from one of the baskets (various colors and fibers available) and you're good to go. All of the available patterns require less than a full skein of yarn. We package the yarn accordingly and pass the savings on to the customer.
Judging by the success of Build a Kit, I'm sure we'll offer it at our upcoming events.
Before we knew it the weekend was over, and we were packing up to head home. We arrived just as a Nor'easter was getting ready to hit the area.
This past week found us diving back into the dye pots, cooking up more fun and color.
