To all those who came by my booth at THE FIND on Saturday, Thank You!
It was a whirlwind of a time, but the weather was fantastic, I finished the shawl I’d been working on, and I made a few pre-sales. For a first craft booth and so little prep time, I think I did pretty well.
Here are a few photos of how the booth finished up looking and the market:
Samples, samples, samples, and my signature yarn cage!
The receipt dress got to be there in all her glory wearing my Seed Stitch Button Cowl
That rumpled piece of knitting ended up being a full fledged shawl by the end of the day.

In the afternoon, came the sun. It was a bit chilly earlier in the day on the shady side. You can see my brother at the bar in the plaid shirt!
So that was my Saturday from 6 am until 6:30 pm. My brother bought me a giant frozen Mojito at the end of it. Let me tell you, it was tasty! But it made the 60th birthday dinner followed by a drive out to Sugar Land for another friend’s graduation party that night a little difficult.
Sunday was pretty jam packed. I started on one of the preordered BeerSox in Olive, which was a quick knit after working on shawls for so long. My Prism BeerSox got to have some adventures as well. I went to Houston’s Dr. Sketchy which is usually every second Sunday of the month at Avant Garden. It’s figure drawing with a twist. We’ve got tunes. And booze. And burlesque. Well, sometimes burlesque, sometimes just a twinge more sexy than your average figure drawing course. Sometimes, there are a lot of friends just hanging out in the background, sometimes it’s all sketch artists and other than the music, you could hear a pin drop. I’ve been going every couple months for the past three years. It’s good to stretch my sketching muscles. Though, mostly, I just chat and knit. And sometimes I pose. Next month, I’m the model! The last time I modeled for it was back in October and December 2009. We might be able to get a crafters discount working this time for those of you who are fellow crafters and want to stretch your sketch muscles!
The Prism BeerSox also got to hug a homebrew at my friends’ moving out Reverse Housewarming Party. They labeled everything that they wanted to sell and had a party. Guests got to make a pile of what they wanted and Square came to the rescue when it was time to leave and pay. But while I was there, it was great to sit and chat with friends that I haven’t seen in a while and enjoy some homebrew!
