Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival

I haven’t gotten much knitting done since my last post. I was pretty sure that would be the case. The festival was amazing and exhausting. I am definitely out of practice. ๐Ÿ˜€ It will get easier as I get back into the groove I’m sure.

The set up on Friday took longer than usual. That’s probably due somewhat to all the new products which I wasn’t sure beforehand how I was gonna display. Then there was the tent set up which was new to me as well. Oh, and there was restocking the yarn racks since I had been pulling website orders from them all year.

Here’s how I ended up doing all the new wood items. They sold very well, which was great!

The weather on Saturday could not have been better. Sunday was cooler and a bit wet but not too much to ruin the day. Sales were good on both days. It was so nice getting out there and visiting with the knitters again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

My husband surprised me on Sunday by driving up to help me break down the booth since it was only a 200 mile drive for this one. I would have been fine but again, I’m so out of practice that my usual 2 hour break down, at most, was turning into twice that. It was nice to have the help. We stayed the extra night there and had a nice Mexican dinner out complete with a jumbo margarita.

I spent yesterday catching up on laundry, school work with my son, and after show bookkeeping. I did a few rows on my knitting last night but not enough to bother photographing. Hopefully more on that next post. Thanks for reading.

    I just did a couple of very small (14 of us at a 4-day fiber retreat and a fundraiser at my sweetie’s hospital workplace) shows, and oh yeah, it required shaking off the dust of both mental and physical muscles. Glad the show was a success!
