For the first time, ever, in my entire knitting life I have decided to go on a fibre diet for a whole month. (Insert shocked sounds here.)
Yes, I, Alliston will refrain from purchasing fleece, roving, add-ins, and yarn from March 1 – 31, 2012, except in the event that the items are needed for a custom order. (Yeah! Loophole!)
As of today, March 12th, 2012, I have not spent any money on these items. I am proud of myself because I am an avid Ravelry user and am never far from anything fibrous.
I decided to stop my purchases of anything squishy and shiny so I can dig down to the bottom of my fibre bins to see all the wonderful stuff I have accumulated in a little over a year of spinning. And once I’ve emptied those bins, I can go on to my vast and varied yarn collection.
I guess I have been able to keep myself busy planning for the upcoming craft markets I will be attending in Edmonton:
March 24 & 25, 2012, On the Spot Pop-up Craft Fair, 10720 – 124 street, Edmonton, AB.
This will be my first show with On the Spot, and I am looking forward to meeting the organisers and aligning with such a great group!
April 14th, 2012, Handmade Mafia, 10335 – 84 Avenue, Edmonton, AB.
This will also be my first show with the Mafia. Unfortunately I was ill for the last show and had to cancel my attendance in early March.
Apart from craft shows, I have been very fortunate to share my spinning talents with my Mum-in-law, Noreen Crone-Findlay. She has used many of my yarns in her weaving projects and I am very happy to share!
