Knitted Bunting and Craft Fair Mark II
I had an idea to knit letter bunting but didn't want to reinvent the wheel so I had a look on Ravelry for a free pattern. I found a lovely one but I still completely changed it! I wanted my bunting to be smaller than the original design so I re-drafted the letters and cast on a smaller amount of stitches.
I really like the cream and orange combo. I would like to say it was chosen as I am an edgy crafter who likes to push the boundries on 'traditional' christmas colours - but the truth was I couldn't find any red wool in my stash! :)
I had a second attempt at a craft fair on the weekend. The table I was provided was quite small but I managed to get pretty much everything on it. I have been working on adding height to my display and I was quite pleased with the result. So have I managed to 'Pay for Pembrokeshire'? Umm, nope. The stall cost £15 to hire and I made..... £13! But - in my usual twisted logic - I did get 2 free cups of tea from the organisers which they were selling to punters for £1 each so that makes it up to £15 ∴ I broke even!
