I went to a craft supplies fair on Saturday with my friends Karen and Hannah. Sadly there were no stalls selling yarn but plenty were selling beads and I found a couple with fabric.
The red is what feels like a poly cotton mix. It was Â£3 a meter and I picked up 3m for a dress.
You can also see in this photo that I got a concealed zip for 50p, 3 meters of polka dot ribbon for Â£1, some green glass crystals for Â£2.50 which will make a bracelet and possibly some earrings,Â ballerinaÂ charms to make into stitch markers, some little “hand made” charms to add to things that I make and two little lucky cat beads.
A close up of the ribbon and ballerina. I don’t tend to beÂ attractedÂ toÂ ballerinaÂ things really but they were quite big charms and looked like they’d make some sturdy stitch markers.
Bit of a blurred close-up of theÂ maneki neko, lucky cat, beads. They’re going to became a very happy pair of earrings. I just adoreÂ maneki neko and have a smallÂ collectionÂ of them in my house.
And this is rather over exposed close up of the colour work in She’s Electric. It’s going rather slowly but steadily as I only ever seem to knit one or two rows an evening. I’d like to finish it this month but although I love the colour it doesn’t seem to inspire me. Too much startitus I think!
