In the Big Time Now

Last weekend, Dan and I hit the road... and the big time. We trucked our wares down highway 91 and set up shop at Webs annual tent sale extravaganza. Our display was decidedly less polished than our compadres': a card table and a bunch of thrift store baskets. But we had a lot of fun, met a lot of terrific people, both customers and "producers" (Now there's a fancy word for ya) and we even sold some yarn.

We really enjoyed setting up our display. The skeins produced by each sheep were placed in their own separate baskets with a picture of said sheep as well, and people really enjoyed seeing the source of the fine, soft, colorful yarn (Okay, I know I'm gushing a little. But I just love this yarn. It is so much softer than the "Icelandic" they sell commercially.)

We met some wonderful spinners in a neighboring booth, and they spun up a small skein from our stripey gray fleece. It became beautiful variegated yarn right before our eyes, and then promptly sold out! We still have plenty of yarn though, and beige and white rovings as well.

Then we hurried back to the Hilltowns because Micah was also hitting the big time: She had some pieces in the Mohawk School District's "Gala Art Show"!
