3 Hats and a Supermoon

So my fiance works at a small private school. Every year they have a Fall Festival to promote community and raise some money. As part of the fundraising, they have an Artisan Fair which consists of parents and students selling anything from art to soaps to unique clothing. This year, I decided to have a booth at the fair. This will be my first craft fair and I am a little nervous. What if nobody likes my items? What if no one buys anything? What if, what if, what if. These what ifs are part of the reason I have never sold my items at a craft fair in the past. All that self-doubt getting in the way.

images I resolved to kick self-doubt aside and just do it. It was time to be brave! Currently, I have a pretty big FO (finished objects) bin sitting in my closet. In this bin lies random items that have never found a home. I have quite a number of items for women, but none for children and/or men. So I got to knitting and whipped up three new hats for kids.

I haven’t blocked them yet, but they are looking pretty good. I am still contemplating on adding pom poms to the yellow/orange and the teal hats.

In other news, did anyone catch the Supermoon last night? My iPhone was not the best tool to capture this awesome event, but if you squint real hard you can almost see it in the picture.

Hope your Monday is off to a great start!

New Yarn!

Last week I stumbled upon a sale on yarn.com (WEBS). Lately, I have been trying to be on a budget. However, the prices were too good! I like WEBS as they have a good selection of affordable yarn and they ship super fast. I ordered last Thursday and my goodies were in my mailbox yesterday! Here is what I got:

 
 Valley Yarns Huntington in Light Grey Heather, Bluestone, and Sunset ($4.79). This yarn is a merino wool/ nylon blend and quite soft to touch. I thought the Sunset color would be a little more orangey. In any case, it blends with the other colors just fine.

 I also got 7 skiens of Cascade 220 sport ($4.75!)  in Blue Velvet and Primaverra. This yarn is intended for On The Blue a simple pullover by Isabell Kraemer. I am in need of some sweaters so hopefully the yarn and pattern gel together into a beautiful creation😊. 

Anything arrive in your mailbox lately?

Weekend Re-Cap: Tour De Fat

Happy Monday everyone! Did you do something fun this weekend? We did! Saturday we attended the New Belgium Brewing Company’s annual bike festival called Tour de Fat. The day starts off with a costumed bike parade through Golden Gate Park. We dressed up like Full Moon Party-goers. I know…Not the most creative. To be honest, I didn’t have any costumes on hand that were suitable for bike riding.

After the ride there was a fun festival which included beer, music, lawn games, and crazy bikes to ride.

Got to love a sunny Saturday afternoon in the park :).

Want It Wednesday

The amount of reading I do has grown exponentially since getting a Kindle Paperwhite.  I am always on the hunt for a new book to read. One of the series that I really enjoyed was the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I was quite sad when I heard that there were only three books, due to the author’s death. However, another author, David Lagercrantz, has taken on the challenge of continuing the story of Lisbeth Sandler and Mikael Blomkvist. Yay! Add The Girl in the Spider’s Web to my must read list 😄.
