Christmas in a Barn

We had a family Christmas celebration in a barn. I had my doubts before we got there but once we arrived we were happily surprised. I forgot my camera so these were taken with a cell phone. Not very clear but it shows the coziness of the occasion very nicely!

Year one: Knitting Chair Markets

So this is the end of the first year of markets for the Knitting Chair.
I must say that this year was a total surprise.
I never thought that at the end of 2011 I would be looking at a successful year of making and selling.
It always surprises me when someone wants to pay money for something that I made.
It makes me feel so happy when people continually love my creations.

The best part:  Dreaming up ideas, making patterns and then creating.  Next step selling and putting myself out there.
You have no idea how happy this makes me.
There has been no job in my life that has made me feel so excited and fulfilled.
I  look forward to the excitement of making things, of meeting lots of different kinds of people, of listening to the ideas of my customers and working along side  my fellow vendors.
Here's to another year of creating!!
Some creations that I am most proud of:

Outdoors man self warming fingerless gloves

These fingerless gloves were very popular this past weekend.
 Everytime I had someone try them on they all had the same expression on their face.
Surprise and then... ahhhh it's warm!
I made six pairs and they were all sold before the market was over.
I need a shorter catchy name for these gloves.
got any ideas?
