When it rains, it pours! This has been a crazy week. Election Day and serving as a pollworker, my next set of knitting classes started, tomorrow is the big craft fair day and I’ve been on the phone with recruiters about a potential job at Genentech. Woweee! My head doesn’t even have time to spin, it’s been so busy! And yet, there’s still time to knit.
There’s always time to knit! I finished up a last minute hat for the craft fair and adorned it with a couple of cute buttons! They were total impulse purchase at the craft store a few weeks back.
I can’t think of a better talisman than a happy yellow hedgehog right now. He’s got a prickly defense system at the ready but for now, he’s smiling and enjoying the company of a cute little mushroom.
I’ve been making signs for my booth too. Hopefully their homemade-ness is endearing and not too childlike. LOL. I’m working with what I’ve got, which is a black & white printer and colored pencils. Also, a glue stick. I enjoy a good crafternoon, regardless of the outcome.
My Shawls & Scarves sign is my favorite, certainly the most elegant. I used a bit of grey bamboo yarn to make an icord strap as a hanger for it. And I think the it’s appropriate to have the Sale sign resemble knitted rainbow clown barf. LOL. Perhaps for the next one, I’ll change a few things up to have a more cohesive look. For now, this is it!
Wish me luck! I’ll surely update you as to how it went! (The job too…it’s a fast track sort of thing, I could be working in under two weeks, if it all works out! Crazy!)
