Thought You Might Like This-A Morning at the Farmer's Market

 Saturday mornings there is a farmer's market near our pen shop. I try to go every week once it opens, which was last weekend. Yesterday I brought my camera. Enjoy!


These 2 were out shopping.

My favorite bread stand

Since I have been banned from caffeine, I stopped here and purchased some decaf, yum!

This vendor sells soaps and lotions made from goat's milk.  She always brings along some guests.

The guests always attract visitors.

And then they kids act like my puppies!
Flowers anyone?

My friend Charlie, the smooth coat Fox Terrier.

Fresh veggies!  These dropped into my bag.

I love their olive oil.  It is like having fruit added to my bread dippings.

Fleece Artist Celtic Vest Kit

The yarns that come with this Celtic Vest kit are just beautiful.  Everyone needs a nice vest for a cool fall day.  I love Fleece Artist's sense of style. 

I love the Perl Grey closure that is used in the pictures.  Perl Grey's knitting jewelry adds a certain sense of  "Oohh, look at that!"

Sweater Babe - Lush and Lacy Cardigan

Several boxes of yarn arrived this week and I was able to fill several back orders.  Yes!  I added in some colors back in Lady Godiva from Hand Maiden.  There was also some Fleece Artist that arrived in new colors.  I post them soon.  There is a wonderful Sun Yellow that came in from Stonehedge.  It can be ordered, but there is no picture yet.

Another cardigan pattern that you can wear with anything.  This one is from Sweater Babe.  Maybe I'll do this in Artesano yarn.  Yum!

Pattern of the Day -Arrive in Style, LaLana Wool's Berry Shady

I found this pattern while I was doing inventory and immediately called LaLana Wool to restock this wonderful yarn.  It's called Streakers! and it lives up to it's name.  This cardigan just seems very sophisticated but could also go with jeans.  The pattern is called Berry Shady Cardigan.  There are several yarn colors to choose from.

Back to my spinning wheel!
