Have you ever bought those bags of "mill end" yarn? It's often a bag of the same type, sometimes different, but usually under $5.
Bernat Roving in the Cork colourway. It's super soft, and really nice to work with. It does pill somewhat, but nothing a lint shaver or roller couldn't fix. I've made a cowl out of it already, and started on a second. I'm using the same pattern for both.
In other news, I am going to soon be selling my knitted items at rEvolution gallery+studio in Kingsville. I'm super excited to get stock made up to bring in there. I'm hoping to have everything made and brought in by the 20th; 2 weeks from now. Ten bows and ten phone cases is what I am shooting for, and possibly some of the dishcloths that I already have made.
I don't think I mentioned this before, but Made In Windsor is closing the store front at the end of the month. Super saddening, but they are going to stay open in a different way. There is going to be a weekly market downtown every Sunday at a cool new place opening up. It's going to be in the parking lot, and there will be around 30 vendors. Once it starts cooling down some, I am going to hopefully do it a couple times. Until then, I will probably be volunteering/working there. This weekend, I will be working at the Made In Windsor booth at Windsor Pride. I have quite a few things that will hopefully be sold there, and I'm excited. Some of my friends will be partying at Pride, and I can't wait to hang out with them.
All in all, life is good. No complaints here!
