1) It's been so long since this next installment of my Haliburton adventure!
2) Some of the pictures are posted on their side.
3) I'm Canadian.
So yeah, back to Jan Knits where I picked up the yarn that was actually called for in this Knitty pattern.
Just tilt your head to the right.
Haliburton is home to a number of different artisans and there is a gallery that I always like to visit, where I picked up these gems.
One last bit of Yarn Stash Enhancement.
This year I was lucky enough to be in Haliburton when there was not only the Artisan Fair, but also a quilt show! So, I'm walking around the show (in obscene, stifling heat) admiring some wonderful workmanship...did I mention it was stupid hot? And came upon some yarn, honestly the stuff just jumps out at me sometimes, I recognized the lady, but no sign. Marty's is the local Health Food 'Emporium' in Haliburton; with a yarn shop. I know, those two things go hand in hand in my mind too. Anywho, she had a booth set up with some needlecraft things available to purchase and I found a kit for this purse that she designed. She said that she taught this to her beginner classes and I just thought it was a nice little learning Entrelac project; felting's not a bad thing either...I think I'll line it with some pretty fabric though, you know, because I have difficulty throwing out scraps.
Oh, I also bought a quilt kit for a sewing room wallhanging. Boy it was hot!!
I haven't starting knitting any of these purchases. I HAVE, however wound all the skeins into balls. A girl's gotta start somewhere!
