Busy Weekend

I did the same thing as Brenda. had a nice post written about our fun day and I lost it. I think we are jinxed. Anyways here I go again.
I had a really busy weekend, yesterday was our Fun Knits Christmas Craft Sale. It was great and we sold lots. We decorated the house and had the crafts all out but I didn't get a picture. Way too busy. In the store we had a yarn sale so the store was busy too. Brenda came over and in between busy times we sat and knit, chatting listening to Christmas music. The store has a very relaxed atmosphere, its little, cosy and full of great yarn. My Sister, Judy and my Mom ran the Craft sale and when it wasn't busy Judy came over and enjoyed all the novelty yarns. She loves making fancy scarves.
I have been working on a lot of projects. The Twisted Float Shrug is up past the armholes. It is a wonderful sweater and once it is done I will post a picture. It is all bunched up on the needles so I couldn't get a good picture. I love Lorna's Laces yarn. It is the nicest yarn to knit with. After Christmas I am going to design a sweater with Lorna's Laces worsted in the Quadra Island colour. I have a few ideas. First thing in the New Year I will order the yarn so if anyone wants anything ordered from Lorna's Laces, let me know by email
I am working on lots of Christmas knitting. My machine knitting is on hold for a few days as I broke a part on my machine and had to order another one. I literally wore it out.
I have an order for 12 hats for a bunch of home schooled kids on Quadra. They are all matching made with Carioca in red with a green stripe.
They are very soft and nice. I will try and get a picture of the group of kids wearing them to post.
