Fiber Arts Friday - Buy Local

Welcome to Fiber Arts Friday!  Tomorrow is the Buy Local Art Show at the Kalamazoo Nature Center and I will be vending again.  I've been busy getting all of the finished goods I've completed over the last few weeks priced so that I can set up my booth this afternoon.

I managed to get a couple more items completed that will be for sale. First, I knitted this slouch hat from a pattern called Graham.  I'm using more of my Buccaneer Alpaca yarn along with a bit of handspun to break up the color.  I am loving this hat.

Next, I wove not one but two scarves.  I used the same base yarn as last week which included my Black Huacaya yarn.  For both of these scarves I used a slightly different weaving pattern by including a pick up stick which added additional texture to both scarves.

Whew!  Seriously, I wish I had this energy all year long instead of the month before a show. Now that the final show of the year is here, I can finally think about gifts.  I need to knit a few ornaments before the end of next week.  Yikes!  Tune in next week to see what I accomplish.  As always, thank you for visiting my blog and Fiber Arts Friday!
