|Practicing the table layout at home.|
I was really worried about the whole thing right up until half way through the Fair but I am glad that my lovely friend had faith in me when I didn't and persuaded me to do it. Those of you who are seasoned sellers will probably wonder what all the fuss is about but this is proving to be quite a journey for me as I find my feet in a world in which I am no longer a home educating Mum. Creating a new role for myself that can fit with prior claims on my time has not been easy but I feel like I am getting there.
Here comes a shocking confession - there is nothing new on my needles! I haven't done anything to the shawl for a couple of weeks for obvious reasons but I am about to launch into some Christmas knitting. My son would like a pair of bedsocks for which I had to buy needles today so have not yet cast on and it is too dark to take a picture of the yarn and pattern so I will do that for the Yarn Along next week. My daughter would like a slouchy hat like this one in black with red spirals.
As a treat following the Fair I have allowed myself to start reading a book. It is by Katy Regan and is called The Story of You. I haven't got into it properly yet as I have had to do lots of things that I had neglected over the last couple of weeks but I think maybe this weekend I will have some quality reading time if I am lucky.
