Like most if not all of the Sydney knitting/crafting community I attended the Craft Fair
at Darling Harbour on Friday – a rushed visit in my lunch “hour”. I practically ran around the joint, stopping at all the knitting stands, the craft book stand and one fabric stand (Patchwork on Central). But I still managed to get a nice load of goodies (in hindsight, it’s probably lucky that I didn’t have more time, because I surely would have bought more, much more – particularly fabric!) (Oh, and “knit from your stash” – ptooey!)
First purchase: Colinette Jitterbug in Velvet Damson and Velvet Olive
Followed swiftly by Kaalund in Wisteria and Wine
And more Kaalund – sadly, the two balls on the left are actually the same colour – just completely different!! But what a great name for a yarn colour – Bushfire! (the difference is due to my rushing and not taking the time to compare the yarn, so completely my fault!). On the right is Poinsettia.
No Belisa cashmere (although I did consider it for some time!!), but did buy another book and some needles (because I clearly need more patterns to tempt me to buy more yarn!)
Forgot to take a pic of the fabric, so will post an update tomorrow.
Oh, and no hob-nobbing with the rich and famous, unlike these two!!
