Late in the Afternoon

At the end of a market at the Arts Centre in Melbourne the sun has moved to the west.

The shadows take over where children have been playing

My depleted stall is ready for the pack up and a trip home.

Weekend Markets

A busy weekend ahead with two markets.  Tomorrow is the Buninyong Farmers Market in the Buninyong Town Hall.  The car is packed.  Much easier to pack the day before and then I can enjoy a more relaxed breakfast before leaving for the market.

Certainly hat season.  I have made more felted hats this week as well as the chunky style berets.

Have a relaxing weekend.

A Hat Week

This week I have been writing a pattern and test knitting some very soft 10 ply Aran weight  merino yarn. 
Great knitting weather with the rain pouring down today.  Also dyeing chunky yarn so I'll be back later and show you the new colours.

The End of the Week

No, these candles are not on the table to set the atmosphere for a special dinner.  Last Friday I had finished my work, packed early for the market and was ready to relax.  I came inside to cook dinner and the power went out for a couple of hours. 


When the power was restored Darwin came inside.  He was obviously as tired as the rest of us on Friday night.

This Week's Work so far

This week has been a very productive week.  New stock is needed for the Studio and the Arts Centre Market.  I have made brooches.  Some new colours using pink and teal.

Merino tops, dyed and plaited ready for spinners and felt makers.

Sock yarn.  Lots and lots of sock yarn to be labelled this afternoon.

The popular tree brooch.

A red and silver brooch. 

Now back to the studio to label yarn.  Then tea cosies are next on the list.

Sunny Market

Last Sunday we enjoyed a beautiful sunny day in Melbourne.  The market was busy.

Hamer Hall which is next to the market is under reconstruction  and was open to the public.  I was busy with my stall so didn't get a chance to have a look. All the comments I heard were very positive about the refurbishment.
