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 £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 £1, some green glass crystals for £2.50 which will make a bracelet and possibly some earrings, ballerina 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 be attracted to ballerina 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 the maneki neko, lucky cat, beads. They’re going to became a very happy pair of earrings. I just adore maneki neko and have a small collection 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!
